Steve Bederman, the Chief Executive Officer of TouchStar for the last ten years, has decided to take on a new opportunity at an emerging technology company. Steve will continue to assist TouchStar as an adviser.
Steve has been successful as the passionate leader of TouchStar since 1998. He was responsible for growing TouchStar from a two person start-up to a global communications technology company that today serves 2,500 call centers and businesses around the world.

I send a sincere thank you to all the employees, customers, and vendors that have been a part of my TouchStar experience. I am proud of what we accomplished together and I am confident that TouchStar has a very bright future. Our entire management team worked hard this year to finely tune TouchStar's operating model for long term success as a mature business. Our work paid off because we made adjustments early in the year that put us ahead of the macro market challenges."
Steve added some insight regarding the path that he will be taking: "As I became confident in TouchStar's ability to operate successfully for the long term, I started to consider the next opportunity to do what really inspires me. I have always been intrigued by growth. I have decided to move on to a company that is ready for a growth driver.
