DC Brands Names New CFO

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - January 31, 2008) - DC Brands International (PINKSHEETS: DCBR) is proud to announce they have hired Martin Bykowsky as the company's new chief financial officer. Bykowsky is a seasoned financial executive with over twenty years of senior financial management experience in key roles at such firms as BASF, Employee Information Services and Hitachi Software-Global Technology. He has significant consumer product experience through his work at Halston-Orlane and Samsonite Corp., where he served as the International Controller. In addition, Bykowsky has financially managed operating companies controlled by hedge funds SAC Capital and Renaissance Technologies. Bykowsky has a BA in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has also been awarded MBA-Finance.

DC Brands President and CEO Richard Pearce said, "This is enormous for us. Martin was simply the best of all candidates, and we are immensely proud to have him on our team. He brings years of public company experience and understands how to get things done -- he is a consummate professional. With our new products in full production and the addition of Martin's full-time focus on completing our audit and keeping all records current and up to date, we can now focus on making our sales results translate into our share price. That just is not going to happen without the return of the bid and ask on our stock. Martin will begin full time on Monday, February 4, and he has agreed to an aggressive six-week timetable for completion of the audit. I have complete faith that with his help and guidance we will take this company to levels that were previously unrealistic."
