Salient Management Company Hires Chief Strategy Officer


Salient Management Company, a business intelligence and corporate performance management firm headquartered in Horseheads, N.Y., has appointed Ayall Schanzer as its chief strategy officer, reporting to president and CEO Guy Amisano.

Schanzer is a former assistant district attorney in New York County where he served under Robert M. Morgenthau, and has more than 20 years experience in business management and strategic development in various types of organizations. In his role as chief strategy officer at Salient, he is responsible for creating, communicating, executing, and sustaining Salient’s strategic initiatives.

"Ayall’s strong leadership experience in corporate strategy, finance, law, and business development makes him a perfect addition to our team of talented senior executives," said Amisano. "We [expect] Ayall to help take Salient to the next level and bring our solutions to a broader array of industries and customers."

Most recently Schanzer served as CEO of Creative Cost Management, a venture-backed telecom expense management company. He introduced market leading software and technology-enabled services to help global organizations manage, understand and control their fixed and mobile communications assets and costs. Under his direction, the company successfully executed its exit strategy ahead of schedule and under favorable terms.

Prior to this Schanzer was CEO of UtiliSave Telecom Services, a company that held domain expertise in the laws, rules, regulations, and tariffs of the telecommunications industry. In that role he repatriated tens of millions of dollars to organizations of all sizes caused by billing errors on the part of the telecom carriers. Before that he was a corporate litigator at Rosenman & Colin LLP where he specialized in serving financial services companies. Previous to entering private practice, he was an assistant district attorney in New York County under Robert M. Morgenthau.

"[There’s an] amazing group of talent that makes up the Salient team," said Schanzer. "The combination of Salient’s powerful and groundbreaking technology and its collective intellectual capital provides a transformative solution to organizations looking to maximize their operating efficiencies."

Schanzer received an MBA from Cornell University, a Juris Doctor degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York, and a BA in political science from Queens College.
