ATLANTA , December 6, 2004 - Silverpop, a leading provider of comprehensive permission-based email marketing solutions, announced today that its CEO, Bill Nussey, is the recipient of the Direct Marketing Association's Marketing Technology and Internet Council Annual Award of Excellence.
The Award of Excellence recognizes one individual that has made the most significant contributions to the marketing technology and Internet industry through novel applications and innovations. Each year, the Marketing Technology and Internet Council accepts nominations from around the globe and then selects a small group of nominees which are then voted on by industry professionals. Presented at the DMA's annual National Center For Database Marketing (NCDM) Conference & Exhibition on December 6, the award also honors the recipient's efforts toward training and educating others in the field.
"I am tremendously flattered by this recognition from the MTIC council and my peers in the industry," said Bill Nussey, CEO of Silverpop.

I look forward to making future contributions and seeing the industry grow even more."
