ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - February 3, 2009) - Domark International, Inc. (OTCBB: DOMK) announced today that it has appointed Joseph Vittoria as Chairman of the Board. The appointment is effective upon the placement and issuance of D&O Insurance for Domark's Directors and Officers. Mr. Vittoria is expected to begin his chairmanship during the first quarter of 2009. The Company will file an 8K upon Mr. Vittoria's formal appointment.

In 1997, Joseph Vittoria founded Travel Services International, a new public company that changed the traditional distribution system in the travel industry. In 2000 he sold it to a British travel company.

From 1987 to 1997, he was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Avis, Inc. While at Avis, he was responsible for creating the Avis Employee Stock Ownership Trust, the largest at that time and long considered a model for companies and governments evaluating employee-ownership programs.

His success at Avis led to his selection as the salaried and management representative to the board of the UAL Corporation for its initial four-year term in 1994, when it created its landmark ESOP. He is now Chairman and CEO of Puradyn Filter Technologies, Inc., and is Chairman of the board of Great Wolf Resorts, Inc. as well as a board member of Vectrix, Inc.

Mr. Vittoria was born on Long Island in 1935 and holds a BS in civil engineering from Yale University and an MBA from Columbia Business School. He also holds an honorary doctor of laws degree from Molloy College and a Doctor of Business Administration from Roger Williams University.

Mr. Vittoria served as an advisory director of the National Crime Prevention Council. In recognition of his efforts on behalf of missing children, he was asked to serve as a member of President Reagan's Child Safety Partnership.

He was President of the Columbia Business School Alumni Association's board of directors for many years and now is a member emeritus of the Board of Overseers. He was the founding chairman of the board of visitors of the Georgetown University School of Language and Linguistics.

Domark International's CEO, R. Thomas Kidd, commented, "Mr. Vittoria brings a long and successful career in the public company environment to Domark International, Inc. and I am extremely proud to be able to work with Mr. Vittoria in building shareholder value. I am confident that his expertise in acquisitions and experience in board management will contribute significantly to the continued growth of the Company and the execution of its business."

Mr. Vittoria commented, "Having reviewed Domark's business plan and seen their success to date, I am pleased to join the board and to contribute to expanding those plans. Domark's view to acquiring companies already successful, but finding the existing world market unsuitable for going it alone, will open the door to many more such companies and I believe this situation will continue for some time. I have already experienced what it means to smaller companies to find the strength of a larger public organization already possessing various disciplines which they can share as a better way to growth and value."
