MMRGlobal Names Richard Lagani, Senior Insurance Executive, to Management Team

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 10, 2011) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that Richard Lagani, formerly of Chartis Insurance, is joining the Company, effective immediately. Mr. Lagani will serve as an Executive Vice President in charge of Insurance, Employee Benefits and Banking Products. He will be responsible for managing the Chartis Domestic and International relationship and will work with Chairman and CEO Robert H. Lorsch to expand MMRGlobal's relationship with Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, New York. His office will be located in New York City, where he will also support the Company's existing relationships in Basking Ridge, New Jersey for both wireless and the use of Personal Health Records in clinical trials.

Mr. Lagani is an experienced insurance, financial services and business professional with over 22 years of industry experience. He spent more than 14 years with Chartis, most recently as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Chartis Product Development. In addition to his other responsibilities at Chartis, he helped develop strategies for the organization's global operating units, identifying business opportunities and strategic partnerships. He is currently a member of a special committee formed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to develop better ways for the intelligence committee to communicate with financial institutions. Mr. Lagani holds degrees from New York University and Vanderbilt University School of Law and practiced law for several years prior to joining Chartis.

"This is an important development for our Company," MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO Lorsch said. "I have been working with Richard for more than three years. He is the ideal candidate to manage the Company's relationship with Chartis and oversee our international sales operations as well as advise the Company on opportunities in the insurance, financial services and legal sectors. In his new position as Executive Vice President, Richard will also work with me, Ingrid Safranek, MMR's Chief Financial Officer, and Sunil Singhal, the Company's Chief Technology Officer, on the day-to-day management of the Company. Because Richard is going to be based on the East Coast, he will be strategically placed near Kodak, Verizon, and, of course, Chartis. This means instead of spending weeks of each month servicing existing customers, I will have more time to focus on identifying new global strategic partnerships and alliances as both a health IT and biotech licensor."

Mr. Lagani is at the Company's Los Angeles headquarters this week and will be traveling to Europe in January and February for meetings. 

"People are critical to a winning team and the Company has spent the last two years building a top management team. I am very proud of what we have put together," Lorsch added.
