Pinnacle Data Promotes Winslow to President and Chief Operating Officer

9/2/2004 - Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. (PDSi) (AMEX: PNS) announced that Christopher L. Winslow has been promoted to President and the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer and appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors. The open board seat was created by the resignation of inside director, C. Robert Hahn, who continues in his management role with the company.

John D. Bair, Chairman, CEO and former President, said Winslow’s leadership has been key to the Company’s success in recent years. “Chris brings strategic focus, market knowledge and tactical prowess to his expanded role as President. His 20-year career has been spent growing companies from our size (approximately $30 million in revenue) to the next level (beyond $100 million in revenue) in both sales and general management roles,” Bair said. “Chris clearly knows how to sell our services and is a seasoned leader in scaling operations to deliver at higher sales levels.”

“Bob Hahn is an outstanding team player who has filled several important roles over his ten years with the company and has also been key to our recent success,” continued Bair. “We thank him for his on-going support and continuing commitment to our organization.”

Winslow said the opportunities for PDSi’s growth in the marketplace are significant. “The markets for the full life-cycle services we offer to original equipment manufacturers with electronics in their products are in the billions of dollars,” Winslow said. “Our investments in sales, marketing and supply chain management have, and are expected to, significantly increase our share of those markets. Correspondingly, our overall operational infrastructure and team has grown and developed to meet the demanding requirements of our customer base. Collectively, our ongoing challenge is to continually refine our strategy and improve our execution to realize our full potential. The team is eager to embrace this opportunity and exceed the expectations of our stakeholders.”
