Atlanta, January 5, 2012 - NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM.OB), the global leader in mobile barcode scanning solutions, today announced that James A. Doran has been appointed as the Company’s new Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”). He will be based in the Company’s new headquarters in Boulder, Colorado.


Specializing in high-growth, turnaround and start-up entities, Mr Doran brings a wealth of experience from a career spanning 13 years as an executive officer for both public and privately-held companies, combined with over 20 years of diverse public accounting experience.  Robert Thomson, named in July as interim CFO, will return to his role as Corporate Controller, working closely with Mr Doran.


Before joining NeoMedia, Mr Doran was responsible for all financial and administrative services at Pico-Tesla Magnetic Therapies, LLC, an entrepreneurial R&D-stage medical device company. Prior to this he spent 10 years as Chief Accounting Officer, Corporate Controller and Secretary at Suntron Corporation, a $250 million to $600 million publicly-traded high-tech contract manufacturer.  During his career in public accounting, Mr Doran specialized in auditing publicly-held companies in his capacity as a senior manager and/ or partner with the Denver offices of Hein & Associates LLP, Williams, Richey & Co., P.C., Coopers & Lybrand, and McGladrey & Pullen.


“Jim’s solid experience speaks for itself and we are looking forward to his immediate contribution to the NeoMedia team. His sound business judgment, excellent communication skills, and dedication to quality are welcome attributes at this exciting time as we also move our headquarters to Boulder,” said Laura Marriott, CEO, NeoMedia.  “NeoMedia’s relocation to Boulder, Colorado, is an important move for the company as we position ourselves closer to customers and a strong talent pool.”


“There has never been a better time to be at the heart of the mobile marketing industry and I am delighted to be joining the pioneer in the mobile barcode space,” said James Doran. “I look forward to working with Laura, the Board and the executive team to contribute to the company’s continued success.”


Boulder, in recent years, has flourished as a centre for high tech and mobile. This, coupled with its strong agency community, makes it the ideal location for NeoMedia to continue to grow its business at a local and international level.
