Stocks in this article: EMRI

DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMRISE CORPORATION (OTCBB:EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, announced today that veteran engineering, product development and operations executive Martin Blake has been named Managing Director of Pascall Electronics, Ltd., a UK-based subsidiary that is part of the Company's Electronic Devices business segment.

Blake has spent more than 35 years in the global electronics market building a depth of engineering, operations, sales and marketing experience. He assumes the role of Managing Director of Pascall from Richard Weller, who has served in the dual capacity as Managing Director of both Pascall and Xcel Power Systems, Ltd. Blake reports to Richard Weller who remains Managing Director of Xcel.

"Martin is a seasoned managing director and he brings EMRISE proven leadership in the management of high technology product development and international experience in manufacturing and the formation of strategic alliances," said EMRISE Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva. "During his career, he has also worked with many of our most important customers in the U.S. and Europe, which will be particularly valuable to us.  

"I would also like to commend Richard Weller for his important work as Managing Director of Xcel and Pascall," Oliva added. "Most importantly, Richard has managed to effectively and synergistically tie these two business units together, thereby helping us achieve the steady improvement in our operating performance that we enjoyed throughout 2012. Thanks to Martin's arrival, Richard now has the opportunity to devote more of his time to Xcel."

For the past two years, Blake has been a management consultant providing a variety of services in the areas of business strategy, risk management, and product/market analysis. Previously, Blake spent six years as Managing Director of Elma Electronics Ltd., the UK arm of the Switzerland-based Elma Group, where his primary role was developing Elma's UK operation and its custom engineering business in the Defense and Electronics markets.
