NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The ExOne Company
(Nasdaq:XONE) ("ExOne" or "the Company"), a global provider of
three-dimensional ("3D") printing machines and printed products to industrial
customers, announced that Brian W. Smith will join ExOne as Chief Financial

Mr. Rockwell commented, "We welcome Brian to our executive leadership
team. With over 30 years of professional accounting experience, we believe his
capabilities add an additional dimension and breadth to our finance
organization. He brings expertise in public company financial reporting,
internal controls, and global financial processes, which are crucial to ExOne
in this period of rapid growth. Additionally, we anticipate that his business
perspective will contribute to the development and execution of our strategy
to increase penetration of the 3D direct metal and indirect sand casting
markets using our distinctive binder jetting technology."

He added, "John has been a key member of our leadership team. In addition to
his financial leadership, he has been instrumental in a number of key
operating initiatives, including the establishment of our production service
centers ("PSCs") and expansion of our global facilities, critical components
in our strategy. We look forward to continuing to benefit from his broad
business experience in his new role as we advance our global growth strategy."

Brian W. Smith, 55, will join ExOne upon departing as an Assurance Client

Partner in 1995, and has spent several years working in a PwC advisory
business assisting industrial products, healthcare and energy companies with
internal control reviews, system implementations, process transformation and
change management. Mr. Smith held various leadership roles within PwC,
