Taylor Pruette will focus on increasing TITAN's sales in the mid-Atlantic and Carolinas region within the GPS offering, building on his experience as a senior account executive at Lawson Software. Pruette established the mid-Atlantic territory in Lawson's new Strategic Human Capital Management business unit, focusing on performance management, compensation management, learning & development, and succession planning solutions. Previously, he was regional sales director at Kenexa Corporation, overseeing a national and regional territory and exceeding quotas up to $1.8 million over three years. Prior to Kenexa, Pruette was sales director, HRO at Advantec-HR, following five years as sales vice president, east region at Ceridian.
