Checkpoint Systems, Inc. announced the appointment of Julie Spicer England to its Board of Directors effective immediately. Ms. England replaces Mr. Alan Hirsig, who recently retired from Checkpoint Systems' Board.

Ms. England has extensive experience in the semiconductor, RFID, and defense systems electronics industries. Her impressive track record includes executive positions at Texas Instruments, Inc. and more recently leading the RFID business before her retirement in 2009. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of a not-for-profit organization and a private company and previously served two full terms on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

Ms. England received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Texas Tech University.

“With the advent of RFID technology increasingly gaining traction in the retail apparel industry, Checkpoint Systems is fortunate to have attracted someone of Julie's caliber and experience at one of the world's leading technology companies,” said Rob van der Merwe, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Checkpoint Systems.

In commenting on her appointment to the Board, Ms. England said, “Checkpoint is poised for significant success in RFID-based solutions particularly resulting from its' acquisition of OATSystems, a leader in RFID software. Checkpoint is a company that has a long history of successfully launching innovative products and technologies and I look forward to serving on its Board of Directors.”
