Market Wire Welcomes Co-Founder Michael Shuler Back to Lead Company's Sales and Client Services Operations in the Eastern U.S.

NEW YORK, NY--(CCNMatthews - May 30, 2006) - Market Wire, one of North America's largest newswires, and a full-service distributor of company press releases and material news, announced today that newswire industry expert and company co-founder Michael Shuler is rejoining the company as SVP of Sales for the eastern half of the U.S.

"We are extremely excited to have Mike back," said Jim McGovern, CEO for Market Wire. "He is one of the founding fathers of the modern-day press release wire industry, pioneering the use of the Internet as a means of efficiently and effectively distributing corporate news while others in the industry were slower to adopt the changing market dynamics. His passion for the industry and for this company is an invaluable asset to Market Wire."

Shuler left Market Wire in 2005 to be with family in Connecticut. During the past year, he oversaw the management of the sales, marketing and client service departments, as a Senior Vice President, for eNR Services, Inc. -- a leading PR technology firm based in Norwalk, Connecticut.

"I greatly enjoyed my time at eNR Services, and leave behind a company well-positioned for continued success, but my heart has always been with Market Wire," said Shuler. "I spent over a decade of my career helping build a company who has made the newswire industry dramatically more competitive. Now, I look forward to helping the company achieve its goals as it expands its sales and client service operations in strategic and critical growth markets across the eastern half of the country. It's good to be home."

Shuler will be based in New York City and will report to Market Wire CEO, Jim McGovern.

Shuler holds a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Houston. He and his family currently reside in Easton, Connecticut.
