NEURON DATA APPOINTS TWO NEW EXECUTIVES; NEW VP OF SALES, CFO STRENGTHEN COMPANY'S POSITION IN CLIENT/SERVER MARKETS

 PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuron Data Corporation, a leader in object-oriented software development tools, today announced the appointment of Stephen Yount as vice president of North America sales and Mark S. Finkel as chief financial officer. Yount, 38, joins Neuron Data from Legent Corporation, where he was most recently regional vice president of sales. Finkel, 39, was most recently vice president and chief financial officer at Consilium, Inc.
 The two new executive hires are part of a companywide effort to expand the management staff to support the sales and marketing of its new client/server development product family. Since August 1993, Neuron Data has also hired Dave Micek as vice president of product marketing and Ralph Love as vice president of technical customer services.
 Both executives bring senior-level expertise and experience in their fields to their new positions. Yount has more than 16 years of sales management experience in the computer, software and telecommunications industries. At Legent, he managed sales operations across 11 Western states for a wide range of technologies, including numerous client/server products running on OS/2, UNIX and Windows/NT operating systems. Prior to joining Legent, Yount was vice president of sales for Goal Systems' DCM Division in Columbus, Ohio, where his organization generated $75 million annually in licensing, leasing, maintenance and consulting revenues.
 Finkel also has 13 years of experience, including senior operations, financial and legal planning and management positions with Consilium, Geothermal Resources International, Inc., and the law firm Ware & Freidenrich. As vice president of operations and CFO at Consilium, Finkel's accomplishments include a successful initial public offering and the negotiation of several funding, distribution and development agreements. In addition, Finkel created international distribution management and intellectual property protection programs.
 "Senior-level expertise and experience is critical to companies at our stage of growth," said Patrick Perez, CEO of Neuron Data. "With his impressive track record in sales and management, Steve is ideally qualified to build and direct a nationwide sales organization that will dramatically expand Neuron Data's market share and revenues. At the same time, Mark's expertise in operations, financial and legal management will help ensure that our growth is managed with the proper models and controls."
