NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collectors Universe, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLCT), a leading provider of value-added authentication and grading services to dealers and collectors of high-value collectibles, today announced the appointment of Mr. Robert Deuster to the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective October 15, 2012, succeeding Mr. Michael McConnell.

Clinton Allen, Chairman of the Board, stated, "The Board of Directors welcomes Bob Deuster, and we look forward to working with him over the coming years as we execute our strategic initiatives, with particular emphasis on international and ecommerce opportunities. Bob's broad management experience, both domestically and internationally, makes him an ideal candidate to take our businesses to the next level, and he will work very closely with the management team and David Hall in particular, to maximize the Company's leading positions in its existing markets."
