Total System Services Inc. said Clifford B. Mason has been promoted to president of TSYS Total Solutions Inc.
The subsidiary, acquired in 1992 and known until recently as Lincoln Marketing Inc., provides fulfillment, telemarketing, and various mail processing services. The name change symbolized its integration into Total System's range of support services, with credit card processing at the parent company's core.
Mr. Mason had been executive vice president since Frank M. "Clint" Kibler retired as Lincoln Marketing president in July 1996. He was senior vice president at Kahn & Associates, a Philadelphia-based credit card marketing company, and vice president of sales at Lincoln Marketing.
"His experience and expertise in the industry as well as his outstanding leadership skills make him a perfect individual to move TSYS Total Solutions forward," said Total System chairman and chief executive officer Richard W. Ussery.
