Cross Match recruits former marine General.

Cross Match Technologies : 03 October, 2007  (Company News)
Former NATO Commander brings military expertise to board of directors at Cross Match Technologies.
Cross Match Technologies has announced that General James Jones has joined the company's Board of Directors.

General Jones currently serves as president and CEO of the Institute for 21st Century Energy of the United States Chamber of Commerce. He retired from the United States 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 US Marine Corps. Recently, he chaired the "Independent Commission on the Security Forces of Iraq," a body of military experts created by Congress to assess the capabilities of Iraq's security forces.

'General Jones is a distinguished, principled and experienced leader who is widely-respected and well-known globally. We are honored that he has joined our Board. His strategic vision and international experience adds an important dimension to Cross Match's capacity to execute our aggressive growth strategy in the United States and around the world," said James Ziglar, president and CEO of Cross Match.

General Jones is the recipient of numerous decorations for his extraordinary military service, including Defense Distinguished Service Medal with two 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, 63, 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. He was born in Kansas City and grew up in France, where his father worked after leaving the Marine Corps.
