FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - TEAM enterprises today announces strategic additions to senior staff to further expand key agency capabilities.  2010 was a banner year during which TEAM grew revenue and profitability despite a turbulent economy, in addition to becoming the 4th largest member of the MDC Partners network of agencies.  Today TEAM is welcoming new senior staff to continue building on the successes of the prior year, and to capitalize on the returning confidence of consumers, and the brands who market to them.

Mark Blair comes aboard as VP, Business Development. Mark's experience building and managing teams at Circuit City, launching XM Radio, and creating field marketing teams at AMP gives him a unique understanding of the retail, client and agency perspectives which will be invaluable to TEAM's clients, both existing and new.  Mark is passionate about working together with a variety of marketing constituents to build business partnerships that make a positive impact to the bottom line. 

Jaime Vasquez brings his extensive background in software development and system architecture to TEAM as VP, Software Engineering. Harnessing his 15+ years of experience in the software development industry, Jaime will be leading the charge on evolving and reimagining TEAM's industry-leading event marketing software, and integrating it seamlessly into clients' databases. Prior to joining TEAM Enterprises, Jaime was a Senior Software Engineer at MathWorks in Natick, MA.

Dan Rooney has been promoted to the new position of VP, Operations where he will be responsible for the management and allocation of resources for new business development, and operational oversight and program management for new clients.  Dan joined TEAM in 2003 to help manage the Miller Brewing Company's experiential marketing program. Since then Dan's unmatched passion to win and "do what it takes" attitude have been integral to delivering strategic programs for clients as diverse as DISH networks, Sears, Elizabeth Arden and Subway. 

Tony Bagnulo joins TEAM as Group Director, Client Services. He will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and oversight of the Client Services group handling the MillerCoors and Bacardi USA businesses. Tony has extensive experience in developing, managing and executing strategic field engagement programs for premium spirits and import/craft beers.  Prior to joining TEAM, Tony had been with US Concepts/MKTG for almost 7 years in a succession of increasingly senior positions, most recently managing the Diageo Ambassadors across a portfolio of brands around the country.

"We are very excited about welcoming such experienced professionals to the company.  Part of what has set TEAM apart since our founding in 1989 is our people, and our passion for strategically connecting great brands with their consumers," according to Dan Gregory, CEO of TEAM.  "Mark, Tony, Jaime and Dan are all proven professionals in their respective fields, and we know that each of them will make significant contributions as the agency continues to not only meet, but exceed, our clients' expectations."

In addition, the following members of the senior management team were elevated to partners:  Alex Gonzalez, CFO; Frank Fanelli, VP Field Marketing; Michael Shea, VP Planning; Greg Goldhaber, VP Marketing.
