[CentOS] Mixing FTP and HTTP file transfers

How do I deal with this?

A content management system which writes to a user's directory as user 

A customer that wants to be able to FTP through a FTP client and vsftpd 
those same files up and down, which is presently set to work with only 
their username.

I don't want everything set 777 or even 707. Is there a way to allow a 
particular user to download and upload files owned by apache, and I 
would assume, when uploading, those files will need to be chown apache 
so the CMS can access and update them?

I'm looking for a best solution which is not going to be troublesome in 
the future and which is not going to have adverse effects on security.
