Cyon Research Adds Distinguished Analyst

Bethesda, MD February 26, 2007 -- Cyon Research Corporation, a leading provider of analysis and consulting for engineering technology markets, today announced the newest analyst to join its team. Honored engineer, educator, executive, and consultant Dr. Russell F. Henke will join Cyon Research’s select group of knowledgeable experts on business and technology issues.

In the last 25 years, Dr. Henke has worked as a corporate officer, board member, and entrepreneur, overseeing the development, marketing, sales, and support of many commercially-successful software applications, as well as administering global professional services in the industrial and electronics manufacturing sectors, in electronic design automation (EDA); finite-element analysis; and mechanical CAE/CAD/CAM systems.

Dr. Henke has held consecutive corporate executive positions at Mentor Graphics Corporation (VP & GM), Automation Technology Products (Chairman & CEO), Gould Electronics (President & General Manager), Schlumberger Applicon (Executive Vice President), and SDRC (President & COO). He has served on the boards of directors of SDRC, PDA, MacNeal Schwendler, ATP, SME and Stottler-Henke Associates. Dr. Henke began his career in the machine tool training program at the Cincinnati Milling Machine Company and simultaneously earned ME, MS, and PhD degrees at the University of Cincinnati. He also "moonlighted" as an adjunct assistant professor, teaching mathematics and engineering for 13 years.

In 1989, Dr. Henke received a Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Cincinnati. A member of ASME, IEEE, and the SME, he was elected an SME Fellow in Class of 2000, one of only 225 Fellows in SME's entire history. The SME membership also elected him as an International SME Director in 2001. Dr. Henke received an award for Professional Leadership from the IEEE in 2002, and was elected an ASME International Fellow in 2003. Last April, Dr. Henke was awarded the 2006 CAD Society Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the CAD industry.

"Dr. Russ Henke is one of the best senior executives I have encountered in my 38 years in high tech," comments John Isaac of Mentor Graphics Corp. "He has an understanding of all aspects of a business, including financial, engineering, marketing and sales. He is the most organized and thorough CEO-level executive I have ever worked with."

“Dr. Henke has already played a significant role in the history of our industry,” said Brad Holtz, Cyon Research’s president and CEO. “His addition to our team significantly strengthens our breadth of coverage in the CAE and EDA markets. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with him and to have his deep knowledge of engineering, software, and corporate strategy applied to our consulting and research projects.”
