Patersons Appoints Seasoned Payroll Executive as Vice President, Worldwide Sales

Anthony Verrone Brings Extensive Global Payroll Expertise as Growing Company Addresses Increased Market Demand

RALEIGH, NC and LONDON--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Patersons, the expert provider of integrated global payroll services, today announced that Anthony Verrone, an ADP employee for 21 years and a highly accomplished international payroll executive and sales leader, has been appointed vice president, Worldwide Sales.

As vice president, Worldwide Sales, Verrone is responsible for the day-to-day management of the company's global sales team, enhancing existing sales processes and further developing and extending the sales and sales consultancy teams.

Sheri Sullivan, previously responsible for global sales, will now transition to manage Patersons' business development efforts as vice president, Business Development.

Prior to joining Patersons, Verrone was a global sales executive at ADP, where he led a multinational sales team focused on selling the company's global HRO model. He played a key role in ADP's global deployment strategy and was responsible for the execution and management of several large sales deals spanning the U.S., Latin American, EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. Verrone previously served as a global sales manager with ADP, delivering a single-source HR outsourcing solution to numerous multinational companies, and as an area vice president responsible for leading a team of sales professionals. He also worked for Oracle as an application sales manager, where he sold business applications and ERP, CRM and PLM software solutions to mid-enterprise customers.

Andrew Pearson, CEO of Patersons, commented, "Patersons has been defining the category of global payroll and, as market demand has escalated, we've added expertise to our leadership team. Anthony joined us over a year ago and assumed responsibility for product management. He has gained a deep understanding of our global payroll solutions and how they meet the diverse requirements of multinational organizations. This experience, combined with his solid track record of global payroll sales success, makes him the ideal choice to now lead our sales team and manage its expansion."

"Global payroll is a tough problem to solve and as more companies expand their footprint into other countries, it requires an experienced partner with a solid technology platform," said Verrone. "Patersons' CloudPay solution actually delivers what other vendors can only promise: a single contract relationship with a multi-country, multi-tenanted SaaS platform backed by the world's leading payroll experts. I'm excited to have the opportunity to leverage my global payroll experience to support our company's growth."

Andrew Pearson explained Sullivan's new role of vice president, Business Development. "As Patersons grows, our Generic Integration Framework generates increasing interest from third party organizations wishing to seamlessly embed our SaaS-based payroll technology, CloudPay, within their own application suites. Sheri will be on point to assist them and to extend, manage and further develop Patersons' network of internationally renowned business process outsourcers."
