/R E P E A T -- Visible Results USA Adds Key Staff to Business Development Team/



    OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 9 /CNW/ -- Leading global loyalty marketing
specialists Visible Results have appointed Steve Marquis as Director, Business
Development in its US office. Marquis will be responsible for driving Visible
Results' business development strategy and execution; identifying new sales
opportunities for the company's loyalty marketing solutions in North America.
He will report to George Stevens, Country Manager, Visible Results USA.
    A veteran of the sales & marketing industry, Marquis boasts more than 15
years of experience working with the grocery, mass and drug retail industries.
His expertise in the business development world makes for a great addition to
the Visible Results global team.
    "Steve's experience in the retail sector combined with his knowledge of
the Loyalty space was the key factor in his joining our team.  The companies
we engage with want someone who really understands their needs, thinks like a
retailer, and can help them identify if Loyalty is an appropriate fit with
their strategic plans going forward," said George Stevens, Country Manager,
Visible Results USA.
    "Add this to his high level of integrity and Steve's genuine desire to
bring a solution to retailers who are looking to change their business for the
better and you have someone who strengthens not only Visible Results, but our
future clients as well."
    Marquis enthusiastically looks forward to working with Visible Results in
addressing the needs of retailers in the North American market.
    "In my 15 years of working with retailers across all channels, I have not
come across a marketing tool that engages, excites and empowers as well as the
Graphicard(TM) platform," said Marquis.  "Not only does our end-to-end
solution engage and excite the consumer, it empowers the retailer to make
objective, fact based decisions on how to impact RFM and more importantly, the
bottom line."
    Marquis observed that the challenges of the current economy had forced
many retailers to discount their product in order to increase overall revenues
-- effectively eroding already tight margins. "Generating those 1-to-1
relationships with customers creates long-term sustainability and lifetime
value."
    Before joining Visible Results, Steve started his sales career with News
America Marketing selling marketing services to Grocery, Mass and Drug
retailers in the United States.  After leaving News America Marketing as Vice
President, Retail Sales, he joined start-up FLOORgraphics as General Manager,
New Products where he successfully launched a new division and also took on
the role of Vice President, Advertising Sales.
    He most recently held the role of Director, National Accounts for
Imagitas, a Pitney Bowes Company, where he was responsible for developing
business opportunities with Catalog Retailers and Multi-Channel Merchants.
