IRVINE, Calif., July 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Epicor Software Corporation (Nasdaq: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, announced today that leading world economist and former chairman of the Federal Reserve, Dr. Alan Greenspan will be the guest keynote speaker at Perspectives 2007, the company's annual global customer conference, scheduled to be held this year at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, Florida, October 14- 17.
One of the most powerful authorities on economic and monetary policy, Dr. Greenspan's leadership during bull and bear markets made the Federal Reserve System an institution respected worldwide. Advising leaders across the political spectrum, he was designated Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System by Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush serving an unprecedented five terms encompassing 18 years. Dr. Greenspan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. Recognizing his significant worldwide contribution, he has been bestowed a Knight Commander of the British Empire and Commander of the Legion d'Honneur by France. Dr. Greenspan is also the author of the upcoming book The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World, scheduled to be published September 17, 2007.
Perspectives 2007 attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a rare keynote experience — a conversation with Dr. Greenspan — in an interactive dialogue offering his candid, and in-depth insight into the issues and factors that are driving the world economy.
"Dr. Greenspan's analysis of economic trends has influenced and often shaped the course of policy, international relations and financial markets," said George Klaus, chairman and CEO for Epicor. "It is an honor to host such an accomplished, well-respected individual and afford our customers and partners the opportunity to gain first-hand, his insight into the issues, challenges and opportunities of the new world economy. For any company, of any size, Dr. Greenspan's insights on the drivers of economic growth, universals of globalization, and critical trends in key regions and countries will be invaluable," Klaus continued. "Last year was our largest Perspectives conference to date, with several thousand attendees — this year we look to provide even more value and information to our customers through the opportunity to hear from the world's leading authority on business and global economic factors."
