TrendPoint Systems, Inc. has announced the appointment of Lisa Mandell as president and member of the board of directors. Mandell, who was formerly the executive vice president of sales & marketing for the company, replaces Roger MacFarlane, who will remain with TrendPoint as chairman of the board of directors.

With over 30 years of experience in high tech sales, marketing, and strategic development, Mandell brings a wealth of industry knowledge and prowess to her new role. Prior to joining TrendPoint, Mandell ran the $2 billion Industry Application Solutions Outsourcing division at EDS, which created and executed global business plans for vertical application solutions. She also served as a senior executive at IBM, Xerox, and Octel (now part of Lucent Technologies).

TrendPoint manufactures and sells high quality power meters that provide actionable information enabling customers to better manage power consumption, maximize uptime, and allocate energy costs in data centers. With Mandell's history of growing revenue for technology leaders of a similar size in the past, she was selected to draw on her expertise to accelerate TrendPoint's growth over the next several years.

"Having Lisa lead our team is the next major step in the evolution of TrendPoint Systems," said MacFarlane. "She has proven to be an outstanding leader with directly applicable experience and a terrific track record in growing companies through a focused business strategy. I am confident that Lisa can advance our company through the next phase of our growth and development."
