AmeraMex International Appoints Two New Board Members

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 5, 2012) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment for logistics companies (stevedoring), infrastructure construction, commercial farming and mining companies, announced the appointment of Janice Stuessy and Marty Tullio to its Board of Directors.

"We are very pleased to welcome both Janice and Marty to the AmeraMex Board of Directors," said Lee Hamre, CEO and President of AmeraMex. "This is an opportune time as they bring extensive business, financial, and the corporate governance experience needed to assist AmeraMex management in the continued growth of the company and the enhancement of shareholder value. In addition to Marty and Janice, we would like to add two additional outside directors with business and public company experience to maintain a well-balanced board," added Hamre.

Ms. Stuessy has more than 30 years of experience spanning financial, management and business development responsibilities. A graduate for Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy, she is the founder of The Graceful Gourmet, a company providing personally designed meals and event catering as well as epicurean classes. Prior to founding The Graceful Gourmet, Stuessy spent six years as financial service manager for General Motors Acceptance Corporation and six years as the West Coast business development manager for Ford Motor Credit Corporation. During her tenure with Ford Motor Credit, the West Coast territory became the number one territory in the U.S. Stuessy attended the University of San Diego School of Business.

Ms. Tullio, a managing partner of McCloud Communications, has more than 15 years of senior management experience in the areas of investor relations and financial communications. Prior to becoming an investor relations professional, she spent fifteen years in sales and marketing within the technology sector with major corporations such as NCR, GTE Telnet, McDonnell Douglas and smaller technology companies such as Time Systems International and Data Point Corporation. Tullio held a variety of positions from sales and middle management to general manager, executive vice president and vice president of sales and marketing. She has an Investor Relations Certificate from the University of California, Irvine, and a BA in Architectural Design.

The company also announced that board members Warren Murphy and Angela Nelson have resigned from its board of directors. "AmeraMex is headed in a very exciting direction of international business, which will require added Board involvement and time," said Warren Murphy. "My decision to retire and spend more time traveling will significantly limit the amount of time I can devote to the board. I believe Lee's innovative leadership and tireless energy will make AmeraMex a success and wish the very best for the company as I too am a substantial shareholder."

"The board and management team would like to thank both Warren and Angela for their unwavering support and their invaluable business expertise over the past many years," said Hamre. "We wish Warren safe travels and Angela the very best as she embarks on her Ph.D. program and relocation to the East Coast," added Hamre.
