Lightbulb Mark Bingham, Todd Beamer ties outside of 9/11 In Business

I just found this while searching google. Ironically it was from the lets roll forums!

Some very good research here that ties Bingham and Beamer together outside of flight 93.

Cheers-

However, I have discovered that United 93 is not the only connection between Beamer and Bingham.

First of all, Beamer and Bingham went to high school together. Specifically, they attended Los Gatos High School in Los Gatos, a town in northern California.

Mark Bingham attended Los Gatos High School for 4 years, from 1984 to 1988. [1]

Todd Beamer attended Los Gatos High School during the 1986-1987 school year, which was his senior year. [2]

So, for 1 year, Beamer and Bingham went to high school together.

Todd Beamer and Mark Bingham are also connected via the business world.

Specifically, they are both connected to a man named Eric Benhamou.


Mark Bingham graduated from college in 1993, and his own company opened for business in 1999. For some period of time between the 1993 graduation and the 1999 opening, Bingham worked for 3Com Corporation. [3]

The CEO of 3Com from September 1990 to December 31, 2000, was Eric Benhamou. [4]

Thus, Benhamou was the CEO during Mark Bingham's employment at 3Com.

Now, did Benhamou and Bingham know each other personally? Well, if you look at the news database Factiva (available at public libraries), you will find two 3Com press releases, one from September 2, 1999, and the other from October 11, 1999. These press releases appeared in the publication known as Business Wire. If you look at the bottom of each press release, you will see Mark Bingham's name and phone number listed in the "contact" section. So, Bingham was a press secretary for 3Com, just as Tony Snow was the press secretary of the White House. So, just as we are sure that Tony Snow personally knew the people in charge of the White House (Bush, Cheney, etc.), we can be sure that Bingham personally knew Benhamou.


In addition to working for 3Com, Mr. Benhamou was a member of the Board of Directors of the company known as Legato Systems.

Benhamou was appointed to Legato's Board of Directors in 1993. [5]

Benhamou was on Legato's Board as late as September 2001. [6]

David Beamer, Todd Beamer's father, was appointed Legato Systems's executive vice president of worldwide sales in January 2001. [7]

David Beamer was appointed chief operating officer (COO) of Legato Systems in February 2002. [8]

Thus, David Beamer and Eric Benhamou worked at Legato at the same time for at least 9 months (from January 2001 to September 2001).

Furthermore, during those 9 months, Benhamou had the high rank of member of the Board of Directors, and David Beamer had the high rank of executive vice president of worldwide sales. Thus, it is very probable that Eric Benhamou and David Beamer knew each other personally.


So, Eric Benhamou worked with Mark Bingham and with David Beamer, Todd's father.

Also, Mr. Benhamou has many ties to Israel. [9]


There is another passenger from United Airlines Flight 93 that should be noted, and that is Nicole Miller. At the time of 9/11, Nicole was a student at West Valley College in northern California. Alice Hoglan, Mark Bingham's mother, was also a student at West Valley College at the time of 9/11. [10]

So, Todd Beamer has ties to Mark Bingham, and Mark Bingham has ties to Nicole Miller.
