Former Best Buy Senior VP and Springworks CEO to Spearhead JumpTech's Growth

EAGAN, MN--(Marketwire - October 22, 2007) - Jump Technologies, Inc. (JumpTech™) announced today that George Danko has joined the company as president and CEO. As part of the agreement, Mr. Danko will be making an investment in JumpTech, which is currently privately held. Danko succeeds John Freund, who remains chairman of the board and a full-time employee, devoted to expanding market opportunities and driving the company's product strategy and sales efforts.

Danko brings 30 years of senior management experience with such highly regarded companies as Best Buy, Pentair, GE and Johnson Controls. Most recently, he served as CEO of Springworks, LLC, an independent startup-investment company of Petters Group Worldwide, where he was responsible for identifying and investing in companies that would be complementary to other companies in the Petters organization.
