Steve DeWindt Appointed to Wayside Technology Group Board of Directors

Seasoned Software Industry Executive Brings Extensive and Varied Executive Operating Experience

SHREWSBURY, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 31, 2014) - Wayside Technology Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTG) today announced that Steve DeWindt has been appointed to Wayside's board of directors.

"Steve DeWindt has an exceptional executive track record in the software industry," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With his experience in high growth stage companies, we expect that Steve will add great value to our company as we continue our trajectory of growth and development."

Steve DeWindt's executive management and global sales experience spans more than three decades. During this time he led international sales and channel teams that generated more than $6 billion in sales. He provided leadership during critical high-growth stages of well-known high technology industry pioneers such as Intel and Computer2000 AG. At Intel, as Director of Worldwide Reseller Sales, he was responsible for indirect sales channels, as well as the development and implementation of new distribution strategies. Under Steve's guidance as Co-President, Computer2000 AG -- then Europe's leading technology products distributor -- grew from $800 million to $3.5 billion in revenues in less than four years, prior to its acquisition by TechData.

Steve also has hands-on entrepreneurial experience, including his tenure as co-founder of Sparxent, a roll up of service providers, and most recently as president and chairman of OptionEase, a software-as-a-service financial services company where Steve engineered its sale to Solium Capital.
