JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Axcess Corp (OTC Bulletin Board: GAXC; the "Company"), an independent provider of self-service kiosk solutions, today announced that industry veteran Michele Dundas Macpherson has been retained as a consultant for driving demand and growing the Company's DVD kiosk initiative nationwide.

As Vice President of Entertainment for NCR Corporation, Macpherson was the general manager of the retail consumer business operating more than 2,000 DVD/media rental kiosks across North America. Here she helped negotiate a multi-year deal with Blockbuster Inc. to deploy and operate the Blockbuster Express DVD kiosk brand. Before her work with NCR, Macpherson was Senior Vice President for DVDPlay Inc., a retail/entertainment company operating 1,200 DVD kiosks in the U.S. and Canada. Prior to DVDPlay, she was Senior Vice President for Encentuate, Inc., a security software company focused on providing solutions for identity and access management that was acquired by IBM.

Macpherson is Managing Partner of Macpherson & Associates, a firm that provides strategic positioning, fundraising and general management for clients in retail, entertainment, self-serve kiosks, technology and social media.  With over twelve years of general management consulting and venture capital experience, she has been instrumental in defining and implementing strategy for dozens of clients.

"The retention of Michele Macpherson powerfully underlines our intention to become a player in the rapidly growing market for DVD kiosks," said George McQuain, Chief Executive Officer of Global Axcess. "Michele has a tremendous reputation and proven experience in this industry, and her expertise will be invaluable as we aggressively grow this portion of our business."

Macpherson said: "Global Axcess has demonstrated compelling ability to maintain industry leading standards for reliability, kiosk availability, highly personal customer service and true retail partnership, and this quality is one of many competitive advantages. Retailers and other potential partners are eager to participate in the rapidly expanding self-service, on-demand model, but many have been frustrated by current service options. There is significant demand for a high quality provider, and Global Axcess is well-positioned to meet that demand."
