ERF Wireless Names Tom Wiedebush as COO to Expand Management Depth and Accommodate New Growth Opportunities

LEAGUE CITY, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - ERF Wireless (OTCBB: ERFB), a leading provider of enterprise-class wireless broadband products and services, announced today that Mr. Tom Wiedebush has joined the company as its Chief Operating Officer (COO) to take over all of the day-to-day high-level operational management responsibilities previously being conducted by its Chief Executive Officer.

Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless, commented, "Over the past year ERF Wireless has experienced a very significant amount of growth in our business and it had become apparent that the company needed to expand our upper-level management depth in order to continue to grow and capture these new business opportunities. Mr. Wiedebush joined the ERF Board of Directors in December 2011 bringing more than 35 years of experience as a banking executive to ERF Wireless. However what ERF Wireless needs most right now, at its current stage of growth, is a seasoned executive who can broaden our operational management capabilities and Tom has that capability and is willing to assume that role immediately as well as to remain on the Board. I am personally looking forward to focusing my attention to the many corporate tasks of ERF Wireless such as becoming cash flow positive and obtaining a national market listing, among others."
