The Quaero Solutions Group Founder Recognized for Marketing Leadership in 7th Annual Stevie® Awards Competition

Charlotte, NC – May 21, 2009 – Quaero, a CSG Systems (NASDAQ: CSGS) Solution and leading marketing services provider, today announced that Naras Eechambadi, senior vice president, has been named a finalist in the Marketing Executive of the Year category at the 2009 Stevie Awards. Finalists in this category are acknowledged for their outstanding marketing accomplishments within the past year.

Naras Eechambadi, an industry thought leader, promotes improving marketing performance and customer experience management through speaking engagements as well as his recent book High-Performance Marketing: Bringing Method to the Madness of Marketing. His proprietary framework, “Six Dimensions of Marketing Performance,” is considered a blueprint for marketing success. Eechambadi founded Quaero in 1999 to help organizations develop and implement effective marketing strategies. Eechambadi’s success in this field was further evidenced at the end of 2008 when CSG Systems acquired Quaero to enhance CSG’s offerings with powerful marketing and customer intelligence capabilities.

“Despite tough economic conditions, many organizations and individuals continue to perform well,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. “The results of the 2009 American Business Awards thus far represent the resilience, creativity, and hard work of American organizations, workers, and executives, like Naras Eechambadi.”

“Naras is a valuable contributor to the marketing industry and we’re thrilled to see him among the finalists for this year’s Stevie Awards,” said Peter Kalan, president and CEO, CSG Systems. “His expertise in both customer intelligence and marketing performance helps his peers and anyone involved in the marketing process. This is a significant achievement in Eechambadi’s career as a marketer.”
