GRANITE FALLS, NC--(Marketwire - March 25, 2011) - Exosphere Aircraft (PINKSHEETS: EXSA) dba BCS, Inc., the nationwide leader in networking for the Internet, today reported that its Board of Directors has elected veteran high tech consultant Howard Highsmith as a board member.

Mr. Highsmith has 40 years' experience in field sales, marketing and executive management, executing marketing and sales strategies with a focus on large commercial accounts, as well as the public and federal sectors.

He started his career selling office equipment door-to-door, graduating soon to selling $100,000 UNIX computer solutions and engineering software to large utility accounts with year-long plus sales cycles.

Mr. Highsmith also worked several years for IBM as a marketing representative. In addition, he served as a branch manager, director of sales and vice president of sales for several other high technology companies.

He has established proven abilities to craft and implement revenue generation strategies resulting in measurable top line sales growth. Two examples are revenue growth from $1.8 million to $19.0 million and $14.1 million to $21.1 million, both in approximately two years.

Under Mr. Highsmith's leadership as sales director for his network integration firm, it was ranked 341 in the VAR500 list of largest network integrators in the United States.

In 2000, Mr. Highsmith formed the Sales Methods Corporation, doing business as SalesCue Corporation. The name was changed two years ago to B2B Institute to reflect a change in focus from software sales to management consulting and education.

Mr. Highsmith is the author of the book Silver Bullet, with recommended strategies for creating competitive advantages focused on revenue goal achievement and sustained revenues.

A Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and an active member of the Institute of Management Consultants, Mr. Highsmith has also served on the IMC Carolina's Chapter Board of Directors and was Co-Chairman of the Member Care Committee of the IMC USA Carolinas Chapter. He currently serves on the Certification Committee, and is an active member of the International Speakers Network.
