Leading Sales Performance Improvement Company Poised for Aggressive Growth in 2008

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 9, 2008) - CustomerCentric Systems, LLC, owner of the CustomerCentric Selling® (CCS) methodology and a worldwide leader in sales performance improvement training and coaching, has hired industry veteran Tim Young as its President and CEO effective January 1, 2008.

"As CCS positions itself for growth and global expansion, the founding partners including Mike Bosworth, John Holland, Gary Walker and myself have been focused on finding the exact right person to lead CCS to the next level," said Frank Visgatis, a founding partner of CCS. "We believe that Tim Young is clearly that person. His experience with complex selling environments along with his strong track record as a Fortune 500 division president and as a successful entrepreneur will be an invaluable asset to CCS, our affiliates and our clients."

An experienced senior executive, Young's career spans 25 years, including eight-years as president of Harte-Hanks Marketing Services.
