space, and Dave is the ideal person to take on this new role. In addition to
driving NFC initiatives across our ID infrastructure offerings, Dave will be
pursuing new revenue generating opportunities with mobile solutions and
applications that leverage the breadth and depth of Identive´s IP and expertise
in NFC and other contactless technologies."

Commented Holmes, "I am excited to take on the challenges of this new role at a
time when mobility and identity management are rapidly converging. NFC-enabled
