Equitrac CEO and President George Wilson Plans to Retire

CORAL GABLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 20, 2000--George Wilson, president & CEO of Equitrac Corporation, today announced his plans to retire later this year. Mr. Wilson, 58, has been president and CEO of Equitrac since 1986. Mr. Wilson's successor is expected to be named in September.

Mr. Wilson was involved in Equitrac's founding in Miami 25 years ago when it was a regional distributor of copier control systems with five employees. Today it is the worldwide leader in cost recovery and document accounting systems with approximately $60 million in annual sales and more than 400 employees.

In the 1980s, Equitrac was twice named to the INC. 500 list as one of the country's fastest growing private companies. In 1991 it bought out its largest competitor and in 1992 went public and was listed on the NASDAQ Exchange. Three years ago the company went private with a leveraged buyout involving the management team and Cornerstone Equity Investors.

Equitrac co-founder, former chairman and Board member John Kane, who retired in 1999, commented on Mr. Wilson's career, "George Wilson is the best business partner anyone could ask for. He is a visionary executive who led the company through decades of revenue growth and profitability. We shared responsibilities for many years and together made decisions that helped Equitrac become the worldwide leader in cost recovery and document accounting."

Commenting on his decision, Mr. Wilson said, "Equitrac is a strong company with wonderful employees, excellent management and an effective and experienced board and strong lines of business. I am pleased to say that I am leaving at a time when the opportunities for us have never been greater than they are now. The 25th anniversary of Equitrac provides a fitting time for me to hand over the reins to a new executive leadership."

Mr. Wilson will remain at the company until the new CEO is in place and will continue to serve as a member of Equitrac's board.

Mr. Wilson is a graduate of the University of Florida where he received both a BS in Finance and Economics and an MBA. Prior to co-founding Equitrac, he held positions with Eastern Airlines in Miami and with Flagship Banks. Mr. Wilson and his wife Linda are residents of Miami.
