The Sword Group rather dropped off my radar recently, so I’ve been catching up with some developments relating to executives involved with their CTSpace subsidiary (formerly BuildOnline in the UK), a vendor of construction collaboration technologies.
The most note-worthy change has been the appointment last month of former Citadon and CTSpace CEO Howard Koenig to the post of US operations director of the Sword Group (see news release).
Meanwhile, former BuildOnline operations director and CTSpace President Stuart Lander left the Sword Group earlier this year and is now heading a Florida-based internet start-up PublicSpend “arriving late 2008” (PublicSpend is looking to provide “powerful business information and market intelligence for local companies and local government”).
Going further back into the CTSpace history, Jas Dhillon, one-time founder and CEO of BlueLineOnline, and latterly a senior Microsoft executive involved with its Software-plus-Service strategy, has joined TASER International, the US-based provider of law enforcement control devices, as “Chief Strategy Officer and General Manager of the newly formed TASER Virtual Systems Division” (see news release).
Update (15 October 2008): Jas Dhillon has been joined at TASER by another co-founder of BlueLineOnline, Yogesh Saini, as Vice President, Product Management and Web Services. Saini will lead the design and product development of TASER’s Virtual Systems Division (see news story).
