According to a press release from Tigerpaw:
"As President, James is focused on building up Tigerpaw’s communities, establishing a stronger brand, and continuing to work with its Client Advisory Group to design and architect software that meets the ever-changing needs of Tigerpaw’s clientele...
...As founder and CEO of Tigerpaw, Dave Foxall plans to remain in an advisory role to help steer executive level decisions."

- NetSuite promoting OpenAir, a SaaS PSA platform, to technology and business consultants.
