Like Michael Jordan, Brett Favre, Lance Armstrong, Pele and Romario, all the great ones come out of retirement.
Harry Townsend is an accomplished, professional sales executive that began with the legal provider Kienzle/Axxia in 1977 and most recently concluded at Thomson Reuters (formerly Elite) in 2007. Across this career of serving the professional services market, Mr. Townsend has developed tremendous contacts and relationships throughout the market and claimed awards such as “Legal Vendor Personality of the Year”. He reemerges now at Chrome River to expand on the fast-growing company’s international client base, which already includes two prominent UK law firms.

"Like Michael Jordan, Brett Favre, Lance Armstrong, Pele and Romario, all the great ones come out of retirement", stated Dave Terry, co-founder and COO of Chrome River. "We are delighted to have Harry back as part of our team which also demonstrates our commitment and desire to serve the needs of our expanding international markets."

Townsend joins fellow Regional Sales Managers Jim Whitmore and Serge Merkin, both of whom were part of the early Chrome River team, and two later hires, Scott Brinkerhoff and Karen DeLucia-Goldstein, each of whom has amassed over 25 years experience working with law firms and professional service organizations. While Serge Merkin hails from Thomson West, the rest of the sales lineup previously worked at Thomson Elite with Chrome River’s management team of Alan Rich, Dave Terry and Anne (Eddings) Becknell.

The addition of Harry Townsend to the experienced Chrome River team will help Chrome River's customers and prospects to fully realize the value and potential of its products and services.
