Feb 22, 2016, 10:18 ET from Document Security Systems, Inc.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Document Security Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: DSS), (DSS), a leader in anti-counterfeiting and authentication solutions, has realigned the management oversight responsibilities of its senior executive team.  The changes, which went into effect on February 16, 2016, are being implemented so there is greater senior executive focus on high growth areas of the business.

As a result of the realignment, Jeff Ronaldi, CEO of DSS will take on the primary leadership role over DSS's Digital and Plastics divisions.  Robert Bzdick will remain as Chief Executive Officer of DSS's Packaging and Printed Products operation, and as President of DSS under the realignment.   Mr. Bzdick remains a member of the Board of Directors of DSS.

"The Packaging and Printed Products division is the Company's largest revenue division and continues to represent significant revenue and opportunity for DSS while the Digital Solutions and Plastics divisions, while currently smaller, offer strong future growth potential that will benefit from dedicated executive support," said Jeff Ronaldi, CEO of DSS.

"The time was right to realign our management duties so each business segment gets the executive support it requires," said Bzdick. "Packaging and Printed Products are very important revenue lines for DSS and are the core of our continuous anti-counterfeiting research and development efforts.   Our Digital Solutions division and to a growing degree, our Plastics division, are focused on technology and its integration into the anti-counterfeiting and brand protection marketplace.    By realigning executive oversight we can sharpen focus on our established businesses but also best position the company to expand its resources in its growth areas."

Additionally, Mr. Garrett Brown will join the company as the Senior Director of Product Management for the Digital Group effective on March 17, 2016. His initial focus will be on enhancing the AuthentiGuard product offering. Mr. Brown has over twenty years of technology product management experience. His past product management experience includes UUNET, US Internetworking, Sprint, and Tachyon Systems.
