ConnectAndSell Names Shawn McLaren CEO
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- ConnectAndSell, provider of on-demand telephone conversations with prospects and customers, announced today the appointment of their board chairman Shawn McLaren to the position of company CEO. McLaren, the architect of ConnectAndSell's phenomenally successful sales growth over the last two years, joined ConnectAndSell in 2007. Prior to ConnectAndSell Shawn ran Securant before its sale to RSA. Shawn may be best known as the creator of the first storage management product for mainframe computers and the founder, CEO, and Chairman of The Cambridge Systems Group throughout its existence. Cambridge was the first pure play security software company in the mainframe world. Shawn was a pioneer in sales force process automation as he wrote a CRM used at Cambridge way back in 1978.
"ConnectAndSell delivers the ability for our customers to speak five to ten times per hour with exactly the people they are trying to reach, and without anyone but the client speaking with these people first," said McLaren. "Nobody else can say to its customers, 'We literally manufacture selling time.'"
"We have declared The End of Dialing," continues McLaren. "No more navigating through gate keepers. No more spending your time leaving voice mail messages. No more automated dialers that leave irritating recorded messages. No more third-party appointment makers who know little or nothing about your products. Our customers' highly paid sales reps are freed by ConnectAndSell to do the highly paid job of selling.
