Don Upson leaving webMethods

Don Upson, the former technology czar for Virginia, is leaving his position

as senior vice president for business operations at webMethods Federal but

will continue working with the integration company as a consultant.

Upson told Federal Computer Week Jan. 8 that he would continue helping

the government on "various technical things." Upson was vice president at

Litton PRC Inc. before his 1998 appointment as Virginia's secretary of technology.

Mark Bisnow, webMethods' senior vice president, said Upson would continue

working as a consultant, particularly in the state and local markets.

Caroline Boyd, the director of marketing, also will leave the company

and work as a consultant along with Upson.
