Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. Appoints New President and CEO

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - Espey Mfg. & Electronics Corp. (NYSE MKT: ESP) has appointed Patrick Enright, Jr, age 53, as President and Chief Executive Officer effective February 2, 2015.

From 2010 to 2015, Mr. Enright was employed by DRS Technologies and last held the position of Vice President of Strategic Planning.

Prior to his employment with DRS Technologies, Mr. Enright held other executive positions in which he was responsible for government procurement and defense industry product development.

The Board of Directors determined that Mr. Enright's career growth in various executive capacities with increasing responsibilities in strategic planning, program development, and systems and solutions for major defense contractors not only qualified him to be the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, but would also provide a major asset to the Board in its oversight of the development and expansion of the Company's core business in defense and industrial power electronics.

Mr. Howard Pinsley, Chairman of the Board, commented: "Following an exhaustive search, the Board determined that Mr. Enright's experience and ideas for the future success of Espey made him stand out from the other candidates. We welcome him to the Company and anticipate working with him for many years."
