Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Announces That Former Brigadier General R.J. Johnson Appointed as COO

KINGSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2010) -  Brite-Strike® Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BSTK) announced today that former Brigadier General Ronald J. Johnson, (USMC Ret.) has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer for the company.

"We are very pleased to have Ron Johnson take on the role of COO, reporting directly to me," said Glenn Bushee, President of Brite-Strike. "Ron has been one of the true leaders in the US military, with over 34 years of service in the Marines. He has contacts around the world, including extensive experience in the Middle East, which is a targeted growth area for our company. Ron's last posting before retiring in January was as the Director of Operations at the Marine Corps Headquarters in the Pentagon, which makes him more than uniquely qualified to run the day to day operations of BSTI," said Mr. Bushee.

"As a highly decorated combat Marine, Ron has the respect of the 'warrior community' worldwide. The fact that he also has the operational experience running the Marine Corp. with flawless precision, will have critical impact as our business grows," said Mr. Bushee.

"I'm proud that Ron, who grew up in Duxbury, MA, and has come back home after 34 years of dedicated service, most of which was overseas in combat theaters, has decided to help grow BSTI into an internationally recognized corporation with worldwide connections," said Mr. Bushee. "It is a true testimonial to his commitment to Brite-Strike, and his brothers in the military, to ensure that they have the best and most innovative tactical lights possible."

Ron will continue to serve as a BSTI Board Member as well as COO.

"It is quite amazing for a company the size of BSTI to have two outside board members the stature of General Johnson, and Mr. Jon Goodrich (President MACE), so I could not be more pleased," stated Mr. Bushee.
