Thomas Koll Appointed Chairman of Infowave Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--Infowave Software (TSE:IW), a global
provider of software that connects enterprise applications to
wireless devices, today announced several executive management
changes designed to better align resources against revenue

Thomas Koll has been appointed Chairman of the board of directors,
replacing Morgan Sturdy, who will remain on the board as a
director. Koll will turn over the day-to-day operations of the
Company and responsibilities of the chief executive officer to a
newly-named Office of the President, which is comprised of chief
financial officer George Reznik, chief technology officer Sal
Visca and board member Jim McIntosh.

"The board has unanimously appointed Thomas to serve as board
chairman and move into a role that will allow him to focus on
strategic relationships in lieu of operational details that have
been his focus for the last several months," said board chairman
Morgan Sturdy. Koll was instrumental in raising $22 million for
Infowave, creating a new carrier-focused initiative, re-orienting
the enterprise sales organization to focus on larger
opportunities, expanding to Europe, and initiating and
strengthening key partner relationships with Handspring, AT&T
Wireless, Rogers AT&T and others. Koll significantly strengthened
Infowave's relationship with Compaq by securing a three-year
strategic alliance, a $2 million investment and the sale of an
internal global site license.

"This new structure will allow me to focus my time on strategic
global relationships where I can affect high impact opportunities,
while the newly created Office of the President will provide an
intensive day-to-day operational focus," Thomas Koll said. "I
believe the Office of the President, working with an optimized
senior management team and reporting directly to the board, is
well positioned to drive sales, continue the successful business
activities already underway, and introduce exciting new products
that address the needs of Infowave's expanding customer base."

Additional changes to the management team are as follows: John
Diack has been named vice president global sales; Matthew
Eichhorst has been named vice president, business development and
services, Ron Jasper has been named vice president, business
development - network operator solutions focused on global network
operators and Heather Knox, director of corporate communications,
has assumed additional responsibility for corporate marketing
strategy and marketing communications. Full biographies of
Infowave's leadership team can be found at
