Snap Interactive Appoints Judy Krandel to Board of Directors

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 7, 2016) - Snap Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP," the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") (OTCQB: STVI), today announced that Judy F. Krandel has been appointed to the Company's Board of Directors, effective immediately. Ms. Krandel will join as the Company's third independent director.

Ms. Krandel, who currently serves as a portfolio manager at the Juniper Investment Company, brings to SNAP's Board more than 20 years of capital markets experience, principally as an investment analyst and portfolio manager focusing on small-cap stocks, with a concentration in technology. Throughout her career, she has worked closely with corporate management teams to help them develop strategic business plans, explore M&A and joint venture opportunities, raise capital and enhance their investor relations efforts.

"Judy's background as an investor provides a critical perspective that will make her a tremendous asset to the Board. She has also cultivated deep relationships with participants in the small and micro-cap ecosystem that could help the Company achieve its strategic objectives," said Alex Harrington, CEO of SNAP. "Over the course of her career, Judy has established a stellar reputation as a top small-cap investor. In that capacity, she's also served as a trusted advisor to many corporate management teams, helping them unlock shareholder value. We welcome Judy to the SNAP family and look forward to her contributions."

Mr. Harrington continued, "We are also pleased to enhance our corporate governance by adding professionals of the highest caliber to our Board. Now that SNAP's Board consists of a majority of independent directors, we have met an important requirement to list on a national securities exchange."

"I am excited to join SNAP's Board and work with the executive team to help build it into a leader in the interactive dating industry," said Ms. Krandel. "SNAP has the elements in place to be successful: It operates in an industry undergoing tremendous growth and has a management team with the vision and experience to capitalize on the opportunity. I am looking forward to helping guide SNAP on a path to continued success."

Ms. Krandel joined Juniper in 2011 as Portfolio Manager for the Juniper Public Fund, a concentrated, value-oriented fund that focuses on small-cap equities. Before that, Ms. Krandel was a Portfolio Manager at Alpine Woods where she managed portions of two long/short equity hedge funds. Prior to that, she was a Portfolio Manager from 2001 to 2009 at First New York Securities, LLC, where her experience included founding and co-managing a domestic long/short small-cap hedge fund. Ms. Krandel has been engaged in public equity research and investing since 1992, starting with Fred Alger Management, followed by positions at Delaware Management and Kern Capital Management.
