Rent-A-Center, Inc. Announces Two Key Executive Appointments

Rent-A-Center, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ/NGS: RCII), the nation’s largest rent-to-own operator, today announced the appointment of two new senior executives.

The Company named Guy J. Constant as Executive Vice President – Finance, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer effective as of June 16, 2014. As chief financial officer, Mr. Constant will be responsible for all aspects of the financial operations of the Company, and will play a key role in developing and executing the Company’s strategic plan. He will report to Robert D. Davis, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

“We are very excited to have Guy join our team. Guy is a highly accomplished executive with a broad understanding of retail finance and operations. His depth of experience in multi-unit, geographically dispersed retail operations and proven leadership skills make him the ideal candidate to join our team as we continue to execute on the exciting transformational initiatives currently under way at Rent-A-Center,” said Mr. Davis.

Mr. Constant was previously employed by Brinker International, Inc. and held several key financial positions over his 10-year tenure, most recently serving as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and President of Global Business Development, from January 2013 until March 2014; Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, from September 2010 to January 2013; Senior Vice President of Finance, from May 2008 to September 2010; Vice President of Strategic Planning, Analysis and Investor Relations, from September 2005 to May 2008; and Senior Director of Compensation, from November 2004 to September 2005.

Prior to Brinker, Mr. Constant spent nine years at AMR Corporation, the parent of American Airlines, in various finance positions of increasing scope and responsibility. Mr. Constant earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Political Science from the University of Manitoba, and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Western Ontario.

"I am very pleased to be joining Rent-A-Center and the strong leadership team Robert has assembled,” said Mr. Constant. “I look forward to working with the team to build new competencies and capabilities that will strengthen and sustain Rent-A-Center’s market-leading position,” he concluded.
