BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ:
BSQR) today announced the appointment of seasoned technology executive Bob
DeSantis to the company's board of directors, and also has been appointed to
the company's compensation committee. DeSantis will serve as a class I
director and, as such, his term of office will expire at the company's 2019
Annual Meeting of Shareholders. He brings more than 30 years of leadership
experience managing operations, global sales, marketing, and business
development organizations at companies across the technology sector, with
significant SaaS experience over the past 20 years.

Bsquare CEO Jerry Chase stated, "Bsquare is thrilled to welcome Bob to the
board of directors. He's established an outstanding track record for building
and guiding technology companies. His expertise will help further strengthen
our organizational vision and go-to-market strategies for our DataV IoT
software offering. We believe Bob will prove invaluable to the board as we
navigate our next phase of company growth, as well as the continuing evolution
of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)."

Throughout his career, Mr. DeSantis has held leadership positions at companies
large and small across the technology spectrum – including enterprise
software, SaaS, eSignature, and supply chain solutions. Since 2015, he has
overseen strategic direction and day-to-day operations as COO at Conga, a
document generation and automation software platform. As chief revenue officer
at Blue Box, DeSantis launched and expanded the company's private cloud
offering, which is now at the core of IBM's OpenStack cloud strategy. At
DocuSign, he led sales, marketing and business development from 2007 through
2011 as the company established its successful commercial operations. His
experience also includes establishing DocuSign's first international office,
as well as leadership roles at Procuri, FedEx, and DuPont.

"It's an exciting time in the IIoT space, as the industry transitions to its
next act," said DeSantis. "We've reached a point where companies better
understand what IoT can do for their operations, so they demand real business
results. I look forward to helping Bsquare continue pushing the limits of IoT
technology to deliver unprecedented customer benefit."
