Herres joined Lagotek’s board a year ago. He’s taking the spot of Eugene Luskin, who will remain chairman of Lagotek and serve as chief technology officer of the 19-person company.

Herres studied electrical engineering at Gonzaga and received his MBA from the University of Oregon. He was chief operating officer of Aldus before it merged with Adobe. Later he was president of ST Labs, vice president of networking at Nortel and VP of Avanti Communications.

Also today, marketing company R2integrated announced that it hired former T-Mobile USA product development boss Leslie Grandy as executive vice president of its Seattle office. Grandy launched T-Mobile’s G1 and six versions of the Sidekick before starting a consulting business, which will now be folded into R2i.

Earlier she was Apple’s online store director for the Americas and a general manager of consumer marketing at RealNetworks.
