Glowpoint Names Peter Holst President And CEO

MURRAY HILL, N.J., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Glowpoint Inc., (NYSE MKT: GLOW), a leading global provider of cloud and managed video services, today announced that its Board of Directors has named Peter Holst president and chief executive officer, effective today.  It is anticipated that Mr. Holst will also join the Board of Directors. Holst succeeds Joe Laezza, who is stepping down as President and CEO and resigning as a member of the Board. To facilitate a smooth transition, Mr. Laezza will continue to serve as an advisor to Mr. Holst and the Board for the remainder of the first quarter of 2013.

Mr. Holst recently joined Glowpoint through the acquisition of Affinity VideoNet and has been leading the Company's integration efforts of the two businesses. He has quickly become a key member of the executive management team.

"Peter has built and managed a successful and profitable business in Affinity VideoNet and is a customer-centric leader," said Jon DeLuca, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "His track record in the industry, proven leadership, and customer skills make him a logical choice to lead Glowpoint through its next stage of growth. I want to thank Joe Laezza for his service and dedication during his tenure with the company."

"The videoconferencing industry is rapidly changing, and I believe Glowpoint is uniquely positioned for the next stage of evolution," said Mr. Holst. "Glowpoint has unmatched experience in the industry, an outstanding global clientele, and an excellent opportunity to leverage its domain expertise into next generation solutions built around what customers demand – flexibility, ease of use and extraordinary customer service. I look forward to working with each and every employee, our customers, the Board of Directors and investors to fulfill Glowpoint's promise."
