NoblePeak Vision Hires New CEO for Next Phase of Business Development

    Industry Veteran Joins Emerging Leader in Infrared Night Vision Imaging

    WAKEFIELD, Mass., Jan. 9 /CNW/ -- NoblePeak Vision
( announced today that Mike Decelle has joined the
company as President and Chief Executive Officer.  Decelle takes the reins
from co-founder Cliff King, bringing 25 years of experience to NoblePeak with
demonstrated leadership capabilities and success in both startup and large
public companies.  King moves into the Chief Operating Officer role to focus
on new product development and manufacturing as NoblePeak rapidly approaches
market introduction of its revolutionary night vision TriWave(R) camera cores
in 2008.
    "The initial build of our TriWave(R) technology evaluation cameras has
sold out," said Cliff King cofounder and COO of NoblePeak. "It is critical
that we now capitalize on this momentum by successfully introducing new
products and bringing our VGA-based camera cores to production in 2008. The
addition of Mike strengthens our team, accelerating our early success and
relationships with our major security camera and military OEM lead customers."
    Decelle brings a strong track record in both technology and product
development which began at Bell Laboratories.  He has extensive sales and
business development experience in established large companies such as Lucent
Technologies where his responsibilities included managing major accounts and
lines of business worth more than $2B.  Over the last six years Decelle has
served as President and CEO for several optical technology start up companies
and recently led the successful sale of Apogee Photonics to CyOptics.
    "The reaction to NoblePeak's TriWave(R) technology by leading camera OEMs
and Systems Integrators has been tremendous, representing broad and diverse
customer demand for a cost efficient solution for night vision," said Ken
Boyda, former President and CEO of GE Security, Inc. and NoblePeak board
member.  "Mike's knowledge of optical technologies and experience at both
large and startup company leadership make him the perfect fit, joining the
company at a high growth commercialization stage of development, rapidly
transitioning from an early stage venture to a scaled operating business".
    "I am thrilled to be joining NoblePeak at such an exciting and critical
phase of the company's development," said Mike Decelle, NoblePeak's new
President and CEO.  "NoblePeak's TriWave(R) technology has the potential to
revolutionize the market for night vision imaging, rendering costly legacy
approaches obsolete.  I'm looking forward to taking NoblePeak into the next
phase of its development."
