MyFamily.com, Inc., the leading network for connecting families on the Web, is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in the greater Seattle area. Michael Graff, a Senior Vice President at MyFamily.com, Inc. and general manager of the company's growing MyFamily.com business unit, has been commissioned to open its new Bellevue, Washington office to house this business unit.

More than 3 million people use MyFamily.com to keep in touch with family and friends.
Michael Graff brings a significant amount of experience in business and product leadership to his role with MyFamily.com. He was most recently the General Manager of Microsoft's Windows Mobile Applications & Services division and General Manager of the Microsoft MapPoint Business Unit. While at Microsoft, Michael led the MapPoint business through a period of rapid growth and multiple product and service introductions, including the launch of Microsoft's first commercial web service. He also held a number of senior product management related positions in the Microsoft Office organization in the 1990s.
"We are thrilled to have Michael Graff as part of our senior leadership team," said Tim Sullivan, president and CEO of MyFamily.com, Inc. "He is extremely well respected in the industry, fits well in our culture, and has a highly regarded and sustained track record of success.

As part of his responsibilities, Graff will lead the local hiring effort and the strategic planning for and continued development of MyFamily.com as a place to share, communicate and preserve family wisdom, stories and memories.
"What attracted me to MyFamily.com was the vision for the service" said Michael Graff. "The focus isn't just to build another internet site. It's about strengthening families by providing them an easy place to share and communicate with each other -- especially when family members and friends are located in different parts of the country, or the world. I'm very excited about the opportunity to build this team in Bellevue and provide a great service for families and groups."
