Ingres Corporation, the leading business open source database company, announced that Roger Burkhardt joined the company as president and chief operating officer. He assumes immediate responsibility for worldwide sales and marketing as well as the global development and engineering organization, and will also serve on the company's board of directors. Burkhardt and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Tom Berquist will report directly to Ingres Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Terry Garnett.

Burkhardt, 45, comes to Ingres from NYSE Group, Inc. where as chief technology officer and executive vice president he managed a global team of 2,000 personnel and led the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) technology team through a dramatic period of intense business and technology change during which transaction volume rose seven-fold. Less than a year after joining the NYSE in 2000, Burkhardt's team built and deployed the NYSE's first automatic execution service. Subsequently, he helped design and successfully launch the Hybrid Market, a pioneering market model that integrates elements of both the traditional auction market and automated trading.
