His specialized skills span the capital markets, IPO activities, spinoffs, and mergers and acquisitions in both domestic and international markets. Mr. Ledwick has broad experience in meeting complex regulatory requirements and implementing fiscal controls as part of senior management with companies such as Dictaphone Corp., a $250 million healthcare software and call recording technology company, Cityscape Financial Corp. and the GTE Corp. A certified public accountant, he holds a Master's Degree in Finance from Fairfield University and an undergraduate degree from George Washington University.

"I am very excited that we are building out our management team  with additional capabilities,  capacity and leadership talent to accelerate the successes of MHS, to continue to expand our value proposition to existing and future customers, and to bring us to the next level of growth," said Zierolf. "I am confident Bruce and Tim bring the strategic, tactical and financial experience necessary to enhance business growth and deliver value to our expanding customer base."

These appointments follow a period of significant expansion at MHS. In April 2010, MHS acquired At Par, a leading developer of mobile supply chain software.
