Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT), the trusted marketing advisor to more
than 450,000 small organizations worldwide, has announced changes to its
executive team to support its focus on driving innovation that creates
and supports small business success. Joel Hughes has joined the company

Brezniak has been named senior vice president of customer operations,
transitioning from her current role as senior vice president of product
strategy. Both roles report to CEO Gail Goodman and are based in the

Hughes will drive strategic direction and corporate development
initiatives for Constant Contact. Having founded and led the growth of

Brezniak has led Constant Contact's product strategy initiatives for
more than five years, overseeing the company's expanding product roadmap
and driving key customer experience initiatives. Her in-depth knowledge
and understanding of small businesses has helped create a market-leading
suite of online marketing tools. In her role, Brezniak will lead
customer operations, which includes Constant Contact's award-winning
customer support team and other organizations focused on delivering
customer success. Brezniak replaces Thomas C. Howd, who is leaving
Constant Contact after more than ten years of service with the company.
The transition is expected to be complete by the end of March. A search
for Brezniak's replacement is underway.

opportunities to help small businesses find success. Adding to our
