As a part of this new structure, ScanSource has created two technology
segments, each with its own President. The two segments are Worldwide Barcode
and Security, which includes ScanSource POS and Barcode and ScanSource
Security business units, and Worldwide Communications and Services, which
encompasses ScanSource Catalyst, ScanSource Communications and ScanSource
Services Group business units.

               Technology Segment and Business Unit Leadership

Glen “Buck” Baker has been appointed to the new position of President,
Worldwide Barcode and Security. Mr. Baker most recently served as Interim
President of ScanSource Europe, where he was responsible for strategic
direction and leadership of the Company’s European operations, including its
POS & Barcode and Communications business units. Mr. Baker joined ScanSource
in 1995 and served in such roles as President of ScanSource Communications,
North America, as well as Vice President of Merchandising for both Catalyst
Telecom and ScanSource POS & Barcode, North America.

Mike Ferney has been appointed to the new position of President, Worldwide
Communications and Services. Mr. Ferney joined ScanSource in 1998 and most
recently served as Vice President of Merchandising for ScanSource Catalyst
where he managed the Company’s vendor relationships. Prior to this, Mr. Ferney
served as Vice President of Sales for the ScanSource Communications business
unit, where he was instrumental in the growth and success of the Company.

ScanSource’s management organization includes additional changes in support of
the strategic technology focus. Rich Long has been appointed President of
ScanSource Catalyst and ScanSource Communications, North America. Mr. Long
previously served as Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications
for ScanSource, Inc. He brings extensive channel experience to this position,
having served in marketing and merchandising management positions for
ScanSource, both in North America and in Europe, as well as in channel
leadership for Extreme Networks.

“As a market leader in our technology segments, we have the opportunity to
leverage our size and experience to deliver more value to our vendor and
reseller partners in our existing markets. What’s more, we are continually
looking to identify new growth opportunities for both ScanSource and our
partners. This new organization structure will allow us to capitalize on our
strengths and these opportunities,” said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc.
“Buck and Mike have been instrumental to our growth, successfully leading
high-performance teams that have achieved significant success, while Rich’s
extensive channel leadership will add great value to the continued growth of
our North America communications businesses.”

                            Operational Leadership

The Company has also appointedScott Benbenek to the new position of Senior
Vice President of Worldwide Operations and Integration Support. Mr. Benbenek
previously served as President of Worldwide Operations for ScanSource. His new
worldwide focus on the Company’s logistics operations and customer service
will enhance the sharing of best practices across all geographies to deliver
increased value to resellers and vendors. In addition, Mr. Benbenek’s team
will drive better integration of systems, programs and policies for the
Company’s acquisitions now and in the future.

Andrea Meade was appointed to the new position of Chief Information Officer
(CIO) and Executive Vice President of Corporate Development. Prior to this,
she served as Executive Vice President of Operations and Corporate Development
for ScanSource. Ms. Meade’s new role as CIO will include partnering with the
Company’s business executives to drive positive business results by leveraging
ScanSource’s investments in Information Technology (IT). As a result,
ScanSource’s reseller and vendor partners will experience a stronger
relationship with the Company as it continues to drive its IT strategy on a
worldwide basis in support of the business. Ms. Meade’s team will work closely
with the Company’s business executives to identify and develop new strategic
opportunities for profitable growth.

Baur commented, “Scott and Andrea’s continued operational management and
enhanced strategic focus will ensure that we are positioned to succeed.”

                             Timing and Structure

The new reporting segments of Worldwide Barcode and Security and Worldwide
Communications and Services will replace the geographic segments of North
America and International. The Company will change to product line reporting
in its next SEC filing on Form 10-K. Mr. Baker, Mr. Ferney, Mr. Benbenek and
Ms. Meade will report to Mike Baur. Mr. Long will report to Mike Ferney. All
management changes are effective July 1, 2013.
