IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2009) - SK&A Information Services, a leading provider of healthcare information solutions and research, announces the promotion of Jack Schember to VP of Marketing and the expanded responsibilities of VP of Operations Albert Chang. Both management changes were made in the third quarter of 2009.

Schember, who has been with SK&A since 2006, is recognized for driving a 99-percent increase in sales leads as well as a 259-percent increase in marketing-generated sales revenue during his tenure with the company. He also led the revitalization of SK&A's brand image and its new-media visibility by means of its website, videos, social-media platforms, and the blogosphere.

"I have the absolute confidence that Jack and his marketing team will continue to drive SK&A's brand forward, enabling us to maintain existing clients, sign new ones, grow our business, and continue to expand SK&A's presence in the U.S. market," said Dave Escalante, President and CEO of SK&A.

Prior to joining SK&A as a Director, Schember was Marketing Manager for Melissa Data Corp. His career spans more than 20 years with experience in direct and interactive marketing, media relations, magazine and catalog publishing, and event management.

The role of Albert Chang, who recently celebrated his one-year anniversary with SK&A, as VP of Operations, has been expanded to oversee the SK&A Research Center where the company's in-house database of two million healthcare-provider and professional contacts is cultivated, maintained and verified.

Chang also leads Corporate IT, Data Fulfillment, Customer Service, Software Engineering, and Quality Assurance Departments.

"In a very short time, Albert has proven to be an effective manager and leader of many of SK&A's vital corporate operations. Albert is a great asset to our company," continued Escalante.
