BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - SMTP, Inc., a provider of high-volume outbound email delivery services for permission-based, business-critical email, today announced that Richard Harrison has joined the company as President and Chief Operating Officer. Harrison is responsible for leading SMTP's business operations that includes the sales, marketing, product management and customer support groups. Harrison will be reporting to CEO Semyon Dukach who has served as the company's chief executive since 2001.

Harrison joins the company from Xactlyit, a management consulting firm he cofounded servicing technology companies. Previous to that he held senior level positions at CA, Inc., Adlex, Inc. (acquired by Compuware), Netcom and Motorola.

"Messaging is one of the hottest growth segments in high tech and email continues to lead as the primary means for business communications," said Harrison. "Delivering those emails is becoming an increasing challenge as ISPs demand greater compliance in the way emails are sent. I see a tremendous opportunity to help companies improve the results of their email communications and appreciate the opportunity to join SMTP as a key contributor to its expansion," added Harrison.
