CALABASAS, Calif., May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTWK), a worldwide provider of global IT and enterprise application solutions, today announced the appointment of Jeffrey M. Bilbrey as President, North America, effective May 23, 2016. In the newly created position, Bilbrey, who joined the board in 2013, will now oversee growth initiatives in the region for NFS AscentTM, the company’s next-generation finance and leasing solution.

“Knowing the company’s overall strategy and market opportunity, deep connection with customers, and the technology behind its product offerings, I could not pass up the opportunity to lead NetSol’s North American operations,” said Bilbrey. “I truly believe the market is ripe for NFS Ascent, and we have an excellent opportunity to build upon a strong client base in the region and further penetrate the leasing and financing market.”

Prior to joining NetSol, Bilbrey served as vice president of client partner services for Majesco, where he was responsible for leading the company’s many strategic client relationships including managing business development. Bilbrey received a bachelor’s degree in management information systems from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire.

“With extensive background as a technology strategist and in-depth knowledge of our operations, we are confident that Jeff is the perfect fit to lead NetSol’s North American operations,” said Najeeb Ghauri, CEO of NetSol. “His appointment demonstrates a significant market initiative in North America, an initiative that already can be supported through our bench of talented technology professionals.”

Following the company’s May 17th annual meeting, the size of NetSol’s board of directors decreased to five members, with Bilbrey and a company insider electing not to run.
