    Former COO to Take the Reins at Leading Marketing Solutions Provider

    REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2012) - StrongMail, a leading provider of email and cross-channel marketing solutions for enterprises, today announced the promotion of Bill Wagner to Chief Executive Officer. Wagner was previously Chief Operating Officer of the company, overseeing day-to-day business at StrongMail, and has been with the company since 2006. He succeeds outgoing CEO Sam Cece.
    "StrongMail has experienced impressive growth in its client roster and solution set during the last several years, and Bill has been at the center of that growth," said Venky Ganesan, Managing Director at Globespan Capital and StrongMail board member. "Bill's deep knowledge of StrongMail's business, energy, and compelling vision make him the natural choice to lead the company through its next phase of growth."

    Recently ranked by Forrester Research as one of only six email service providers (ESPs) suitable for enterprise marketers, StrongMail has built a market-leading business providing email and digital marketing solutions to the world's top brands. StrongMail's suite of hosted solutions lets marketers engage customers with relevant messages based on information from all customer touch points. Forrester specifically called out StrongMail for its top scores in customer retention, campaign performance testing and scalability.

    "Sam led StrongMail for seven successful years, and we are grateful for the pivotal role he played in guiding the company's transition from a provider of email infrastructure to a top-tier provider of email and cross-channel marketing solutions for the world's top brands," Ganesan said of the outgoing CEO. Cece will now serve as an advisor to StrongMail.

    "The opportunity for StrongMail is immense," said Wagner. "We have a unique and exceptional set of products, a break-through product vision and an amazing group of people who are on a mission. With these key ingredients of success in our hands, I am extremely excited about our future."

    Whoa....

    I would have to admit a similar initial reaction in reading this announcement. Perhaps there still is hope for AJS after alll.... in his next life.

    Are you confusing Bill Wagner with Bill Waggoner?
