PROVO, Utah, Nov. 8, 2006 -- Prosper, Inc. recently announced that Tom Stockham, former CEO of MyFamily.com and Ticketmaster has joined their Board of Directors.

Stockham said of his vision for the company, "I believe Prosper can become a key force in helping millions of people realize their professional and financial potential. Almost everyone feels like they're capable of more in their professional life, but most people don't know how to apply their skills and knowledge in new ways that will achieve more.

I hope I can help Prosper improve its products and services, grow its audience and customer base, and extend its range of services from very high-end personal coaching to online community support that will teach people how to accomplish more."
