3/18/2003 - Performance Technologies (Nasdaq NM: PTIX), a leader in unified systems design for the communications, industrial and military markets, announced it has appointed Robert Tillman, former president of Ziatech Corporation, to its Board of Directors.

Mr. Tillman joined Ziatech Corporation in 1997 as president and led the organization as an independent embedded systems supplier until October 2000, when Intel Corporation acquired the company.

The Ziatech acquisition was the primary thrust behind this expansion, and we fully expect to benefit from Bob's experience as a former senior executive of the Ziatech organization as we move the company forward," said John Slusser, chairman of the board. "We are honored to have someone of his knowledge, depth and experience on our Board. He will be an important asset to this organization."
