Former New York Assistant DA Is Salient's New Strategy Chief

HORSEHEADS, NY--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) - Salient Management Company, a business intelligence and performance management firm, has appointed Ayall Schanzer Chief Strategy Officer, reporting to CEO Guy Amisano. He is a former Assistant District Attorney in New York County where he served under Robert Morgenthau.

Schanzer has over 20 years experience in business management and strategic development in various organizations. He is responsible for creating and executing Salient's strategic initiatives.

"Ayall's strong leadership experience in corporate strategy and business development make him a perfect addition to our team of talented senior executives," says Amisano. "He will help take Salient to the next level and bring our solutions to a broader array of industries and customers."
