Select Selling makes a buy, changes name

Posted by Kim Peterson at 2:02 PM

Kirkland-based Select Selling announced today that it has acquired the majority of the assets of OnTarget, the "sales methodology" division of Oracle, and has combined the business with its own into a new entity called The TAS Group.

Financial terms of the deal, which closed June 30, weren't announced. On its Web site, The TAS Group says it provides consulting, software and training designed to help customers grow sales. Its European headquarters are in Dublin.

TAS Group spokesman George Cohen said the company has about 50 employees overall, with about a dozen in the Seattle area.

Oracle acquired OnTarget when it bought Siebel Systems in January, according to this IDG story. Siebel purchased OnTarget for around $259 million in 1999.
