Makana Solutions Appoints Christopher Mason Director of Sales

Expert in Sales Comp, Processes, and Payment Takes Top Sales Spot
At On-Demand Sales Compensation Planning Solutions Provider

LEXINGTON, Massachusetts–August 21, 2007–Makana Solutions, developer of innovative on-demand solutions for sales compensation plan and design, today announced that Christopher Mason has been appointed director of sales. Mason has more than fifteen years of sales and management experience in technology, including incentive compensation automation.

“Chris understands all aspects of sales and compensation planning, and is the perfect choice to lead Makana Solutions sales,” said Liz Cobb, chairman and CEO. “His work at SalesNet gave him a thorough grounding in the sales process and the benefits of on-demand software; from ADP he learned payment systems; and Centive and ITC taught him about commission calculation. He knows first-hand the issues confronted by people who design sales comp plans and model incentive compensation, and that’s the kind of direct applications expertise we value at Makana Solutions.”

“It’s great to be part of a team that truly delivers what comp plan designers desperately need,” said Chris Mason. “Having spent time in the incentive compensation space, I know that no one company provides what Makana Solutions offers in the way of designing, planning, and modeling compensation for sales teams.”

Mason has served as director, national accounts, for Centive and ITC (spun off from Centive), where he directed sales and marketing for the enterprise incentive management (EIM) product line, focused on the financial services industry. He has held sales and sales-management positions for ADP, Cognos, Applix, and SalesNet, consistently exceeding quota in all his sales roles. Under his leadership as managing partner, KM Associates increased billing 40 percent for four consecutive years and became known for its expertise in HR, sales, and marketing. Mason earned a bachelor of science degree in marketing from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado.
