Joe McVicker Named President of GroveSite

(Phoenix, AZ September 8, 2005)—GroveSite (, the leading provider of online collaboration workspaces for cross-company teams, has announced that Joe McVicker will assume the presidency of the company effective immediately. McVicker, who has been CTO of GroveSite since its founding in 2002, is the architect of the company's flagship collaboration product and a successful serial entrepreneur.

Using information technology to foster collaboration and improve workflow has been at the center of Mr. McVicker's twenty year career. Prior to starting GroveSite in 2002, he designed and developed a number of collaboration products, ranging from ISO 9000 document control systems, to portals for secondary education, to online corporate training platforms. Ease-of-use is the key design principle of every McVicker-architected product, as is evident in GroveSite 4.0.

McVicker grew up in an entrepreneurial home and was working for the family business, Aircast, at age ten. He started his own LAN consulting company in college and sold it four years later. McVicker was a partner at Inter-Mold, an injection molding intellectual property company, which was later acquired by Aplix.

"I'm excited to be named President of GroveSite at such a key time in the dynamic collaboration industry," he says. "Our company is growing rapidly, and is well-positioned as a hosted cross-company collaboration tool. We are gaining clients across many industries, both SMB customers and larger corporations who need a secure way to collaborate outside their firewall. Continued innovation will be pivotal to our success, and I will enjoy helping GroveSite meet that challenge."

McVicker earned an MBA from Thunderbird, the Garvin School of International Management and a BA in Economics from Middlebury College.
