VitalWorks Inc. Appoints Lisa Zappala To Board Of Directors


10/19/2005 5:10:16 PM

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VitalWorks Inc. , a leader in radiology and medical information technology solutions, today reported that Lisa W. Zappala was appointed to its Board of Directors effective March 1, 2004.

Ms. Zappala is currently a senior vice president of Aspen Technology, Inc. performing a part-time role as senior advisor since leaving her job as CFO last summer. She served as treasurer and then CFO of Aspen Technology for over eight years. Prior to joining Aspen Technology, she practiced public accounting for more than eleven years at Arthur Andersen & Co. as a CPA. A 1981 graduate of Boston College, Ms. Zappala serves on the board of two privately held companies.

"We are excited to have Lisa join our board and welcome a fourth director who meets Nasdaq's independence requirement and is a financial expert as defined by SEC rules," said Joseph Walsh, president and CEO.

"When we commenced the search for a new director, our goal was to appoint an independent person with a strong background in accounting and financial reporting, with business experience and skills in the software industry, and who would help diversify our board," said Stephen DeNelsky, chair of the board's nominating committee. "With Lisa Zappala's appointment, I believe we've accomplished our goal."
