Onelink4travel Names Paul Flannery CEO

Onelink4travel, a provider of integrated global distribution and
financial settlement services to the travel and tourism industry, today
announced the appointment of Paul S. Flannery to the position of CEO of
The Call Center LLC, Onelink4travel’s outbound customer contact services
subsidiary. Flannery, with nearly 20 years of experience in the direct
marketing, collections and sales professions, will provide invaluable
expertise as Onelink4travel develops its travel agent outreach and support
initiatives. Flannery was founder, president and CEO of The Call Center prior to its
recent purchase by Onelink4travel. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Onelink4travel, The Call Center, based in Reno, Nevada, is expected to
handle client solicitation, sales support and client retention duties for
Onelink4travel. With a history of completing over 2,000,000 calls per
month on behalf of corporate clients, the Reno business is staffed with
bilingual call center specialists and operates from a newly built,
state-of-the-art operations center.

Prior to founding The Call Center, Flannery was president of Financial
Credit Network, a collection agency located in Visalia, California. In his
role with FCN, Flannery was responsible for overall business planning,
corporate strategy and new business development, as well as the execution
of FCN’s external funding activities.

“Paul Flannery has done an exceptional job building The Call Center from
the ground up into a first-rate business,” said Bill Guerin, Chairman and
CEO of Onelink4travel. “I believe he will be a true asset to our new
company, not only because of his direct marketing and customer contact
experience, but also because of his bottom-line and operations acumen.”

“In the time I’ve spent with Bill Guerin and the Onelink4travel team, I’ve
come to appreciate the breakthrough nature of the company’s business
model. I believe there is a real need for the services Onelink4travel can
provide,” stated Flannery. “I’m looking forward to directing the resources
of The Call Center to help ensure the success of this exciting and
pioneering concept.”

Flannery’s background also includes a stint with Ziegler Ross, Inc., where
he assisted small-to-medium businesses, including collection agencies, in
developing their business and marketing plans. In his role, Flannery
worked closely with various U.S. regulatory agencies including the
Department of Commerce, Treasury Department, and Customs Department.


Flannery started his career with Digital Equipment Corporation where he
eventually became business system marketing manager with responsibility
for over 300 sales representatives and sales managers.
