HAMDEN, Conn., June 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq:TACT), a global leader in market-specific printers for transaction-based industries, today announced that the Company has promoted current Chief Financial Officer Steven A. DeMartino to President/CFO and Tracey S. Chernay to Executive Vice President - Sales and Marketing, effective immediately. 

In addition to his current role overseeing the finances of TransAct, Mr. DeMartino will now oversee the company's operations and human resources divisions, as well as information technology functions where he will drive forward the Company's operating strategy.   In her new role, Ms. Chernay will be leading TransAct's efforts to combine the Company's product sales with the Company's consumables, service and web sales.

"It is a very exciting time at TransAct, and with all of the potential we are seeing for this company in the future, we have decided to make these strategic changes," said Bart C.

Mr. Shuldman continued, "Tracey's promotion will align our product sales with our service and new web store. This gives us a strategic advantage in the marketplace by combining our printers with consumables and service into one package while also letting us take advantage of the work we have done with our world-class web store."

"Steve and Tracey have done a tremendous job for the Company, and I am extremely proud to be announcing these promotions," concluded Mr. Shuldman.
