Varolii Names John Pierson Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Services

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 2, 2010) -  Varolii Corporation today announced that John Pierson has joined the company as senior vice president of Global Sales and Services. In this role, Pierson will drive revenue among new and existing customers, ensure close alignment among all customer-facing organizations, and help structure company operations for greater scalability and growth.

Bringing more than 25 years of experience to Varolii, Pierson began his career at Hewlett-Packard and then moved to SAP before serving as an executive sales and field operations leader for companies such as Intermec Technologies, Hyperion Solutions, and Global 360. Most recently, he was senior vice president at Birst, Inc., a privately held business intelligence software start-up in San Francisco. Throughout his career, Pierson has significantly increased revenue, streamlined client support and consulting functions, and built go-to-market strategies that consistently exceeded business goals.

"John brings a wealth of senior management experience to Varolii," said Nicholas Tiliacos, president and CEO of Varolii Corporation. "As Varolii readies itself for its next phase of growth, John's leadership style, business savvy and intense focus on client satisfaction will help ensure we meet our company goals by continuing to focus on what makes Varolii the industry leader: our single-minded determination to deliver tangible value to each and every client."

"Varolii built its reputation on innovative technology, stellar support and a keen understanding of its clients' business needs -- all of which mean Varolii is on solid footing to take advantage of the many opportunities coming its way," said Pierson. "In the short time since I came on board, I've spoken with as many clients as I possibly could. The genuine enthusiasm and respect I hear as they describe the value Varolii offers has only reinforced the reasons why I joined the company."
