Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
Silverchair Learning Systems (SLS) is pleased to announce several promotions it has recently made in an effort to position the company to successfully manage its continued success and expansion.
Thane Kerner, CEO of parent company Silverchair Science+Communications, Inc. (SSC), announced that Mike Benzian, recently President of SLS, has been promoted to Chief Business Development Officer for SSC. His responsibilities will broaden to include additional management and revenue generation responsibility for SSC's other business units. Kerner also announced that Mike Mutka, recently Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SLS, has assumed the role of President and Chief Operating Officer for SLS.
"Given what we read everyday about a sagging economy, to be making moves to accommodate record sales and revenue growth in 2008 is truly an accomplishment," said Kerner. "Mike Benzian has an impressive record as the leader of SLS for the past four years, and we look forward to having him assume overall business development management for the entire organization."
"Mike Mutka has been the architect of our incredibly successful sales and marketing department, said Benzian, his predecessor. "He built the department from a two-person organization in 2005 to a team of 20 professionals that have driven our incredible track record of growth during the past four years to over 3500 clients, with 265,000 users taking 3 million courses a year."
"We have built an organization with incredibly talented team members, all of whom are very focused on delivering more than our customers expect from us," said Mutka. "I look forward to leading this company to continued success as we remain committed to making our clients successful and delivering a level of value that makes us an indispensible partner in senior care. That passion is the core of everything we do: it has fueled our success, and it's what separates SLS from the competition."
