Deep Web Technologies Welcomes New COO and Corporate Counsel

SANTA FE, N.M., Feb. 24, 2008 — Deep Web Technologies ( has announced that Larry Donahue recently joined its executive staff as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Corporate Counsel. Larry brings over 15 years of direct leadership experience to Deep Web Technologies, combining a broad range of strategic planning, financial and legal expertise with a specific focus on software marketing. In his new role, Larry will advise on legal matters while driving the organization forward with a practical, attentive management style.

Larry is licensed to practice law in the State of New Mexico and the State of Illinois. He is a registered patent attorney, has contributed to multiple Internet-focused publications and has presented on topics associated with cyber communication, the Internet and computer technology, both from a legal and technical standpoint. Larry commented on his position, "I'm excited with the possibilities of Deep Web Technologies. They have perfected the concept of 'federated search,' and I believe the company is well-positioned to take the traditional concept of 'search' to the next phase: It gives the power of deep, inaccessible or fee-based information to people and organizations."

Deep Web Technologies recently launched the first two of a number of vertically focused portals: the highly successful Biznar (, a deep web business research website; and Mednar (, a vertical search engine for medical professionals. Both search engines are publicly available and showcase Deep Web Technologies' advanced federated search technology, extending an ease-of-use and the power to find content not normally indexed by the popular search engines, such as Google, Yahoo! and others. "Federated Search by Deep Web Technologies surfaces deep web information for a variety of users who might otherwise be unaware of the source or the information's availability, creating a single, real-time search capability," remarked Larry. "This is particularly important considering the large interest in the deep web, and the hunt for optimized methods to search it."

Larry believes federated search will become increasingly important in the enterprise, and will tap his 20+ years in information technology to help bring Deep Web Technologies into the corporate enterprise environment.

Larry's career includes over 20 years of Internet business development and information technology management. As COO and Corporate Counsel for SpaBoom, providers of instant gift certificate functionality, Larry provided business development, project management, operations and customer service experience and support helping SpaBoom become one of the fastest growing technology companies in the industry. Prior to SpaBoom, Larry managed FatCow Web Hosting services, leading them to profitable, triple-digit growth rates. Larry has held leading positions with Baker Robbins & Company and Leapnet, Inc.

Founder and CEO Abe Lederman said, "We are thrilled to have Larry join our team. Larry immediately impressed us as having strong credentials, an engaging personality and the vision for things done right."
