MAULDIN, S.C.--(Business Wire)--
The Gordian Group, a leading provider of construction pricing data, procurement
software and services for the construction industry and public agencies,
introduced today a new U.S. sales team as part of its plan to expand its
established Job Order Contracting business. 

Scott Smith, Vice President of Sales for The Gordian Group, heads the team which
includes newly hired Regional Sales Directors and support staff. Smith has
nearly 20 years of executive-management and sales experience with
enterprise-software and information-services companies, including Software AG,
Screening International and Parametric Technology Corporation. 

"The unique value The Gordian Group delivers to its clients makes it well
positioned for even greater growth than it has enjoyed since first founding Job
Order Contracting," Smith said. "I am thrilled with the team of sales
professionals we have assembled at The Gordian Group to help deliver that value
to new clients and segments that can benefit from our solutions." 

"This team`s critical mission is expansion of the community of public agencies
using Job Order Contracting to maintain and repair buildings, roads and other
infrastructure, while also expanding awareness in new markets including the
private sector," said William L. Pollak, CEO. "A dedicated, invigorated sales
force is key to accelerating The Gordian Group`s growth, which has remained
strong with word of mouth selling even through the cyclical economy of the last
several years." 

Four of the six sales executives are new to the company. The team collectively
possesses close to 100 years of sales experience with enterprise-software and
information-services companies delivering business solutions to industries
ranging from construction, to manufacturing, to investment management, to
healthcare. 

Responsible for the seven-state Western area, Garrett Siri is based in Salt Lake
City, Utah. He joins The Gordian Group with more than 16 years of sales
experience, including 12 years with Parametric Technology Corporation,a
product-development and engineering-software company. 

The 16-state Central area is overseen by Steve Roe from Denver, Colo. He is a
20-year sales veteran, having completed successful stints with credit-reporting
giant TransUnion and employment-screening leader Screening International. 

Matt Garrison serves The Gordian Group clients in the seven states of the Great
Lakes area. Based in Chicago, Ill., Garrison is a six-year veteran of The
Gordian Group, where he was a project manager working with clients that included
the City of Chicago and Purdue University. 

Eight states comprise the Southeast area, which is managed by Alyssa Chapman
from the firm`s Washington, D.C., office. Another 20-year sales veteran, her
career includes successful assignments at Screening International, networking
giant Cisco Systems and computing icon IBM. 

Bob Maxwell brings more than two decades of sales experience to serve The
Gordian Group clients in ten Northeastern states. Most recently, he held
sales-management positions with business process-management solutions provider
Software AG and Screening International. Maxwell is based in Philadelphia, Penn.
