GREENVILLE, SC, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Scio Diamond Technology Corporation (OTCBB: SCIO.OB) (hereinafter "Scio" or the "company") today announced that its Board of Directors appointed Michael McMahon as Chief Executive Officer, effective February 1, 2013. 

Mr. McMahon has been the company's Chief Operating Officer since 2011. Mr. McMahon is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati and has over 30 years of senior management leadership experience. He has held Senior Executive positions at Fluor Corporation, Jacobs Engineering, and CRSS, Inc. managing the design and construction of over 19 billion dollars of constructed value worldwide, much of it in high technology. 

Ed Adams, Chairman of Scio's Board of Directors, said: "We are delighted that Michael has accepted our offer to lead Scio. Michael's leadership in designing, building, and starting up Scio's production facilities enabled Scio to now aggressively ramp production and revenue. His diverse skill set, international business experience, corporate governance expertise and business acumen are a great fit for the company. His vision of mass production of diamond for both the industrial and gemstone markets is clear, concise and focused. Michael has already demonstrated a leadership perspective that fits ideally with Scio's. There is no doubt that Michael will lead Scio to being the most productive and efficient diamond operation in the world. More importantly, his strategic approach and previous experience in building successful partnerships will lead Scio to new markets that can exploit the power of diamond as a disruptive material technology." 

Michael McMahon commented: "The growth possibilities for Scio are immense, and I look forward to leading the company to achieve its full potential. Our achievements to date in starting mass production are just the beginning. Our patented technology will enable us to continue our production ramp in the months ahead."
