Mattes, 52, has a strong record of driving growth and improving profitability in large, global businesses.  He has more than 25 years of experience in the information technology and telecommunications industries – primarily with Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) and Siemens AG.  Mattes most recently was senior vice president, global strategic partnerships at Violin Memory, a manufacturer of flash memory computer storage systems.  He will remain with Violin in an advisory role.  

"We are very pleased to have Andy on board to lead Diebold as we work to transform the company to one driven by software and services-oriented technology," said Wallace.  "He is an experienced leader with a proven track record of generating sustainable, profitable growth through effective execution and strategic leadership -- particularly in a global software and services environment.  He has the right combination of knowledge and experience at the major corporate level to lead our company during this period of swift change in the industries we serve."  Mattes was chosen as CEO following a four-month nationwide search led by executive search firm, Korn/Ferry International.

"I am excited to join Diebold and lead the company at such a critical time," Mattes said. "Diebold has a tremendous history with a strong global brand and a solid services and technology foundation from which to grow.  The company has taken a number of significant steps to help rejuvenate its business, and I look forward to continuing this work as well as implementing new approaches to strengthen our profile as a technology and service leader.  The board of directors and I are committed to improving our performance and creating greater value for all our customers and stakeholders."
