State Street Research of Boston has announced that it will increase its sales force by more than 50 percent. The increase, from 19 to 29, is part of an overall restructuring of its retail national sales operation, the company said.

"What we're really doing here is tiering' our sales approach to focus on areas where we expect to have the most success," said Robyn Tice, a spokesperson for State Street Research. "Instead of being everything to everyone, we want to be smart about our sales strategy and maximize our sales efficiencies."
