Austin, TX – Red Book Connect today announces that Kevin Costello, former President of Ariba, will join its Board of Directors.
Costello served as president of Ariba, a cloud-based software and consulting services company that helps companies to buy, sell and manage their cash more efficiently, for twelve years.
