VIZERGY® President & CEO Joe Hyman Earns Prestigious Honor

Named one of HSMAI’s “Top 25 Most Extraordinary
 Minds in Sales & Marketing”


<>Jacksonville, FL (January 21, 2010) – Joe Hyman, President and CEO of VIZERGY®, a leader in hotel Internet marketing, was recently named of the “Top 25 Most Extraordinary Minds in Sales & Marketing” by the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International’s (HSMAI) Board of Directors.  Hyman will be presented with a plaque at the Top 25 Reception sponsored by Expedia Media Solutions on Monday, February 1, 2010 at the New York Marriott Marquis.  He also will be honored on stage during the 20th annual Adrian Awards Gala the same night.
This annual award is given to leaders in the hospitality, travel and tourism industries for accomplishments during the past year.  The well respected award distinguishes outstanding leaders who are admired by their peers.  The Top 25 winners have consistently achieved exceptional business results and positively impacted their industry in the previous year.
“I’m thrilled to be named one of HSMAI’s Top 25 Minds for 2009.  Coming from such a first class organization, and having seen the impressive lists of past winners, I feel this is a top honor in the industry,” says Hyman.  “It’s a testament to the outstanding work of the VIZERGY team and the success of our hotel clients.”
Joe is the second VIZERGY leader to be named a Top 25 Mind.  Joel Carver, the company’s Director of Sales and Marketing from 2006 to 2008, was honored in 2007.  VIZERGY, founded in 1998 as SECURE-RES by Hyman, has been guided by at least one Top 25 mind winner since its inception.
Hyman’s award comes on the heels of VIZERGY’s seven Adrian Awards for excellence in Web Marketing.  The Adrians, also presented by HSMAI, are the hospitality industry’s most recognized awards.  In addition to the HSMAI honors, VIZERGY has also been named a Top 50 Fastest Growing Company in Northeast Florida by the Jacksonville Business Journal two years running.
