Board of Directors at Cross Match accept resignation of senior member who leaves to join President-elect advisory team
Cross Match Technologies has announced that General James Jones, USMC (Ret), the National Security Adviser Designate for President-elect Barack Obama has resigned from the company's board of directors.

Before accepting the National Security Adviser nomination, General Jones served as president and CEO of the Institute for 21st Century Energy of the United States Chamber of Commerce. He retired from the US Marine Corps in February 2007 as a four star general after 40 years of active service. At the time of his retirement, he was the NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the Commander of the US European Command. From 1999 to 2003, he served as the Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Donald Nickelson, Chairman of Cross Match, said: "It is with mixed emotions that we accept the resignation of General Jim Jones from the board of directors of Cross Match. As shareholders and employees of Cross Match, we will sorely miss General Jones' leadership, insight and guidance. However, as citizens of the United States, we are pleased that General Jones will be devoting his talents and energy to ensuring the security of our country and to maintaining peace and stability around the globe."

General Jones is the recipient of numerous decorations for his extraordinary military service, including Defence Distinguished Service Medal with three oak leaf clusters, Silver Star Medal, Legion of Merit with four gold stars, Bronze Star Medal with Combat 'V', and Combat Action Ribbon. General Jones is a graduate of the National War College. Early in his career, he attended the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and served in Vietnam.
