MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - Teneros®, Inc., a leading provider of Microsoft® Exchange messaging solutions, today announced the addition of key sales and customer advocacy executives to its management team.

Matt Weil joined Teneros to lead the company's growth up market with the new Teneros Always-On™ service offerings suite.

Monico Mallari will lead the Service Delivery and Customer Advocacy organization at Teneros.

"Matt and Monico bring the experience and vision for building a scalable revenue generation and service delivery organization for our new SaaS services," said Ben Petro, president and CEO for Teneros.
