"Brandon joined the company almost 10 years ago to assist me with strategic planning and business development with minimal knowledge or experience in our business and industry," said Perry, "Since then Brandon has been a significant contributor and leader in our success and has become a recognized industry leader as well. It is with great confidence that we recognize him with this new appointment as he continues his efforts and leadership for the company's plans and operations into the future."

As president and COO, Logsdon will be responsible for the execution of all day-to-day sales and marketing activities, customer support efforts and technical development and operations for the company's Fuel Rewards and Centego businesses. In addition, he will continue to support Perry with strategic business and corporate development efforts as well as in the development and execution of the company's long-term visions and strategies.

Mills joined Excentus in May 1997 and has most recently been serving the company as executive vice president of corporate services. In this function, Mills has played a key role in supporting the growth of the business through his leadership and building of vital areas of the company's infrastructure including accounting, human resources and the financial clearing operations for the company's Fuel Rewards business unit. In addition, Mills serves as corporate secretary for the company's board and played a critical role in the acquisition and integration of the assets acquired from MetroSplash into the company's Centego business unit.

"Jim joined the company a little over a year after I started it and had previously worked for me for several years at EDS," said Perry, "He is greatly respected within the company and by our customers and has been a significant contributor and leader in our success."

As CAO, Mills will continue to play a critical role in leading the investment and efforts in improving and expanding the company's infrastructure to support the efforts of Logsdon, as well as continuing to support Perry in the leadership and operation of the board.
