Altair Appoints Nationally-Recognized Financial Executive Howard Morof As CFO

TROY, Mich., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Altair today announced the appointment of veteran financial executive Howard Morof as the company's chief financial officer. Morof has served on the Altair board of directors for the past two years and has extensive experience with high-growth companies as well as expertise in capital markets, mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures.

As chief financial officer Morof will be responsible for Altair's global corporate financial strategy. Morof will further build on Altair's consistent record of annual growth throughout its 27-year history.

"Howard is a very experienced financial executive with significant knowledge and a sophisticated understanding of our business," said Altair Chairman and CEO James Scapa. "His talent for successfully leading corporate expansion and financial growth places him in a key role for Altair's future development."

Morof joins Altair after five years as chief financial officer of North American Bancard, one of America's largest independent merchant/credit card processing companies. Previously, he held chief financial officer roles at FMF Capital, a wholesale mortgage banking company, and Broder Bros. Co., a leading distributor of imprintable activewear, after serving as a partner at Morof Sheplow Weinstein CPAs.

"Having served on Altair's board, I have a high level of respect for Altair's business success and see this as an exciting opportunity to take an active role in Altair's continued growth strategy," said Morof. "I look forward to working with our executive team and partners to continue to build upon Altair's momentum."
