DecisionPoint Systems, Inc., a leading provider and integrator of Enterprise Mobility and Wireless Applications, announced that it has split the roles of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer and named board member Lawrence Yelin non-executive Chairman.  Nicholas R. Toms remains President, Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors.
 
Mr. Yelin, a member of the Board of Directors since the Company’s merger with Comamtech, Inc. in 2011, and one of the Company’s independent directors, is an attorney specializing primarily in corporate, business and financing law and is currently in private practice.  From 1980 to 2009 he was a partner at the Canadian law firm Faskin Martineau DuMolin LLP and one of its predecessor firms, Martineau Walker, where he was also managing partner.
 
“The Board decided that the split of the Chairman and CEO roles will add another layer of strategic input and oversight to DecisionPoint and therefore be beneficial to shareholders and the growth of the Company,” said Mr. Yelin. “The move comes at a very important time for DecisionPoint as we move forward with our solutions sales strategy to increase our higher margin software and services revenues. DecisionPoint is in many ways a new company today compared to the more hardware- and license-oriented business of the past, and our goal is to capitalize on the broad opportunities that are currently being presented to us.” 
 
Mr. Yelin, a Canadian citizen and resident of Montreal, was a member of the Board of Directors of Comamtech from 2007 to 2011 prior to the merger with Comamtech. He has a BA and BCL from McGill University.
