SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 9, 2005 -- MDM Group, Inc. (OTC: MDDM) advises that MDM Group subsidiary, Harrington Group Limited (HGR.AX) earlier today advised the Australian Stock Exchange:

Harrington Group Limited is pleased to advise the appointment of Colonel John B. Alexander, Ph.D. US Army (Retired) as Chairman of the Company's new Advisory Board.

In addition to Colonel Alexander, the Harrington Group Advisory Board will boast a membership of world renowned homeland security and industry experts who will provide input into the Company's product development, commercialisation and overall business strategy.

The full Advisory Board, details of which will be released shortly, will also provide advice and guidance in the assessment of alternative law enforcement and homeland security technologies and initiatives.

Colonel Alexander is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on non-lethal weapons and is credited with developing the modern concept of non-lethal defence. He currently serves as a consultant to the US Joint Special Operations University and is a member of the National Research Council Committee for Assessment of Non-Lethal Weapons Science and Technology in the US.

Colonel Alexander continues to consult to the US government and provides guidance in military situations globally. Most recently, he served as a mentor to the senior leadership of the Afghan MOD in Kabul. He previously headed the Los Alamos Laboratory program on non-lethal weapons and has served as the US representative on four international studies conducted by NATO.

Colonel Alexander is the author of "Future War" -- recognised as "the bible for those seeking answers to the role of non-lethal weapons in modern warfare," according to General E.C. Meyers, former Chief of Staff, US Army.

As a member of the Council on Foreign Relations non-lethal warfare study, he was instrumental in the report that is credited with prompting the Department of Defence to create a formal Non-Lethal Weapons Policy in July 1996. He has also conducted numerous non-lethal warfare briefings to the highest levels of government including the White House Staff, National Security Council, Members of Congress, Director of Central Intelligence and senior Defence officials.

Peter King, Harrington Group Chairman said: "The Company is honoured to have Colonel Alexander on board and looks forward to utilising his vast and diverse experience." Colonel Alexander has gained expertise through a lifetime of achievements in special operations, intelligence, research & development, and through his distinguished military career, which included commanding the Special Forces "A" Teams in Vietnam and Thailand. "Most importantly, however, we see his recent work in the field of non-lethal weapons as being extremely beneficial to Harrington Group," he said.
