Nimble Technology Appoints James Watson to Board of Directors 

(Seattle, Washington, USA-January 16, 2001)-Nimble Technology(tm), a
Seattle-based software company developing a powerful XML-based data
integration platform, today announced the appointment of James Watson, Head
Partner at Monterey Bay Partners, to the company's Board of Directors.  

Watson was a founder of Skyway Systems, a high-tech logistics company.
During his presidency of Skyway, the company was named twice to Inc.
magazine's list of fastest growing companies during the 1980s. In 1993, Inc.
magazine named Watson as one of the Entrepreneurs of the Year. Union Pacific
Corporation acquired Skyway in 1995.

"Nimble is developing critical tools to help manage and share information
across supply chains. Jim Watson's knowledge of these issues-specifically
the business needs for sharing information between supply chain partners to
streamline the manufacturing, packaging and delivery of products-will be
invaluable to our efforts," said Suzan DelBene, Chief Executive Officer at
Nimble Technology.

"Companies up and down typical supply chains store information in a
bewildering variety of formats and database systems," said Watson. "The
XML-based data integration platform Nimble Technology is developing will
enable companies to get a more accurate, timely and comprehensive view of
the ability of their supply chains to deliver product. I dealt with these
challenges on a daily basis at Skyway and I'm delighted to have the
opportunity to help Nimble bring its solution to market."

In addition to his work with Nimble's Board of Directors, Watson is on the
Board of Directors of iSuppli Inc., an e-procurement and logistics
management firm; Symbius, a leading supply chain consulting company; and
GlobeRanger, an Internet provider of location-based data. He also serves on
the Board of Advisors to DBSI, a satellite communication company, and
AllStarFleet, an Internet based asset management firm.
