design, implementation and management of high performance Information
Technology Systems (ITS) infrastructure solutions, today announces that Jerry

Since joining Beacon in 2009, Bowman has played a key role in focusing the
Company on its core offering, eliminating non-core products and associated
costs, and driving the expansion of global operations. He also led the
implementation of a cloud-based financial, sales and professional services
automation software platform. With Bowman's assumption of the duties of BICSI
President last month, he intends to broaden his related industry leadership
and corporate consulting experience.

"This is an exciting time for Beacon," stated Jerry Bowman, outgoing President
and COO of Beacon. "While many other organizations have adopted a
"wait-it-out" approach to our recent economic challenges, Beacon's executives
have actively transformed the Company in preparation for the ITS market
resurgence that seems to be imminent for Q3 and Q4 of this year. I am more
convinced than ever that Beacon has the right business model, the right
services, and the right management team to prosper in the ITS market segment."

"Jerry has made important contributions to Beacon over the past
two-and-one-half years," stated Bruce Widener, Chairman and CEO of Beacon.
"We wish Jerry success in his future endeavors; and look forward to a
continued positive relationship with him and BICSI in the years to come."

"We are also confident and excited about Paris' and Mike's abilities to
execute and enhance Beacon's strategies," added Mr. Widener. "Since joining
Beacon in January 2012, Paris has further solidified relationships with our
principal accounts; and has set a solid direction to significantly improve our
organic and channel partner sales over the ensuing months. Mike, who started
in March 2012, also brings exceptional credibility, energy and discipline to
the ITS professional services management side of our business. Together with
the rest of our growth-focused leadership team, Beacon's operational
capabilities are stronger than ever. We believe the Company is very
well-positioned to diversify its global customer base and accelerate its
profitable growth."
