CFO Of The Year and Strategic Planning Pro to Headline H&K Consulting Seminar July 11


McLean, Virginia (July 1, 2002) - Holland & Knight Consulting, the business-to-business management solutions provider for emerging, growth and technology companies, today announced that CFO Of The Year, Mary Dridi of webMethods, and widely recognized government business development expert, Linda Allan of NCI Information Systems, Inc., will be featured at its July 11 event. The breakfast seminar, "Breaking Through the ‘Small Business' Barrier," will highlight the challenges faced and overcome by these seasoned veterans in their respective management areas in transforming their "small businesses" to successful industry leaders.

Ms. Dridi, recently named CFO Of The Year by the Northern Virginia Technology Council, Maryland Tech Council and DC Tech Council, joined webMethods in 1998; then, a 20-person company with Fiscal Year 1997 revenues of less than $12,000.

Ms. Allan brings a unique perspective as the Executive Vice President of Strategic Programs for NCI Information Systems, Inc. She is credited as instrumental in leading NCI's rapid growth from her pivotal position directing business operations management (P&L), business development and strategic planning. An Executive Vice President since 1991, she has been a driving force behind the company's reaching $120 million in annual revenues for 2001, and its recognition by Washington Technology as one of the Top 100 Prime Contractors in the U.S.
