TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elysium Internet, Inc. DBA TheDirectory.com (Pink Sheets:EYSM) announces this morning that it has solidified Agreements to secure Mr. Ted Haumesser to serve as its President and National Sales Director, effective October 1, 2010. Ted is a proficient, award-winning professional with proven experience and success in start-up development and implementation, call center operation, and extensive sales history dealing with small to mid-sized businesses and C-level executive helmed enterprises.

Haumesser's previous position saw him creating a new division for the Company which resulted in his group closing over $10 million in business between 2008-2009. As well, he's ranked Number One in divisional sales for a run of three consecutive years, all the while earning several sales awards.

TheDirectory.com Founder and CEO, Scott Gallagher, comments: "His experience translates directly to that which we require to take TheDirectory.com to the next level. We're very enthusiastic about having someone of Ted's caliber leading the company; I am confident that his expertise will have a tremendous impact on expediting company growth and exponential revenue success. After reviewing several candidates, we couldn't have asked for a better fit and at such an opportune time in line with company goals."

Gallagher continues, "The build-out of our call center is complete and we are actively taking on additional sales staff to meet demand, helping small to medium sized businesses nationwide to maximize their advertising spend. Our network of local vertical sites continues to increase SEO and web traffic toward overall ranking and exposure. Statistics show that the majority of online searchers prefer organic results over paid ads, and our team has the capabilities to implement this. With most of our sites organically ranked on page one of major search engines like Google and Yahoo for many industry-specific search terms, we are able to deliver measurable results to small businesses while providing a free, rich content search platform for users."
