Four years after joining Netscape Communications Corp.'s federal group,
John Menkart left his job as director of government sales last week to become
vice president of worldwide sales at WeGo, a California-based startup.
While at Netscape, Menkart led the company to many deals with federal
agencies, including the 1997 agencywide contract with the Defense Department
for Netscape software. That contract has expanded over the past three years
to cover all of Netscape's enterprise messaging, directory services and
Web server software offerings.
In his new role at WeGo, Menkart will focus on the
Washington, D.C., market.
The company creates portals and Web communities for trade and professional
associations, including the National Mental Health Association
and the California Farm Bureau Federation.
