ROCHESTER, NY—03/16/09—BCC Software, a BÖWE BELL + HOWELL company and a leading developer of high-performance solutions for professional mailers, announces the addition of Bob Schimek to its leadership team. Schimek, a veteran software developer with nearly two decades of experience in mailing technology innovations, will become BCC’s Director of Commercial Mail Solutions on Monday, March 16, 2009.
“Bob is a powerhouse developer whose experience and commitment to forward-thinking mailing software development makes him a natural addition to the BCC team,” said BCC President K.

We’re very excited for Bob Schimek to join BCC Software, as we continue to refine and improve our already powerful software and services.”
“I couldn’t be happier about joining BCC, a company whose achievements in the mailing industry speak for themselves,” Schimek said. “The postal landscape is constantly changing, and mailers need to know their solutions provider can adapt with the speed and effectiveness their operations require. BCC’s history of ahead-of-the-curve innovations makes it the true industry leader. I’m proud to be a member of that community.”
Schimek’s duties as Director of Commercial Mail Solutions will involve helping the company visualize and achieve programming goals in keeping with upcoming major postal initiatives. These include the further development of USPS® Intelligent Mail® Services, in line with the Postal Service™ rollout schedule for that technology; and continuing enhancement of BCC’s product line with regard to interfacing with the USPS PostalOne!® electronic data system.
A graduate of St. Mary’s College (Winona, MN), Schimek is an acknowledged thought leader on postal industry issues. He is co-chair of the IDEAlliance Mail.dat workgroup, and has extensive experience working directly with key USPS personnel on clarifying modifications to postal rules and regulations.
