Mr. Furbush is the president of College Summit, a position he has held since July 2007 after spending six months working with the organization to redesign key business systems.  Previously, Mr. Furbush served as Chief Executive Officer of FreshDirect, after being hired as Chief Operating Officer in 2003.  He served at the NASDAQ Stock Market, as Chief Economist and then Executive Vice President of NASDAQ Transaction Services.  Before this, Mr. Furbush was Senior Economist at Economists Incorporated, a position he held from October 1990 to June 1995. Mr. Furbush served as Economic Advisor to the Chairman, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, from October 1989 to August 1990, and Financial Economist at the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Economic Analysis, from June 1987 to October 1989.  Mr. Furbush has held teaching positions at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and at the University of Maryland.  From June 1985 to September 1986, and again in January 1987, he was a consultant and junior staff economist in the Executive Office of the President of the United States, Council of Economic Advisers. Mr. Furbush was a research associate at the Center for Naval Analyses, Marine Corps Operations & Analysis Group, from October 1982 to June 1985.  He received a B.A. in Economics from the University of Washington, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Maryland.

Mr. Furbush's appointment to the Board of Directors is in conjunction with the previously announced closing of the exchange of the 5.5% Convertible Notes as part of a separate Investor Rights Agreement.  The Investor Rights Agreement grants specified note holders, so long as they hold more than 20% of common shares outstanding (including notes and preferred stock as if converted into common without regard to the limitations on conversion in the notes and the preferred stock), the right to have Board representation in the form of one Board member to be nominated by such note holders and then to be elected by the Board, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Investor Rights Agreement.
