Hypercom Corporation announced a reconfiguration of the Company's global sales and marketing functions to create a focused platform for revenue growth, streamline the organization, and further strengthen accountability for client relationships and anticipated market share growth globally. Reporting to Hypercom President Philippe Tartavull , the new organization structure creates a sales organization directly focused on key geographies, supported by a product and channel specialized marketing, development and services organization.

OB Rawls, Managing Director, Americas
TK Cheung, Managing Director, Asia Pacific
Neil Hudd, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing

"We are focusing our efforts to capture market share in high growth geographies where we have an established infrastructure and strong brand awareness, to capture more of the countertop market, and to aggressively target the mobile, multi-lane and unattended segments." said Mr. Tartavull. "We are doing this with an exceptional range of services and secure PCI-certified products and solutions sold and supported by the right professionals in the right geographies. The new organization will strengthen our ability to more quickly deliver the very best solutions to the market."
