GREENVILLE, SC - October 02, 2008 - ScanSource Communications, a leading value-added distributor of voice, video and converged communications solutions and a sales unit of ScanSource, Inc., {NASDAQ: SCSC}, has named Glen “Buck” Baker as its new president. Baker formerly served as senior vice president of merchandising for the Catalyst Telecom sales unit.

Baker replaces Jill Phillips, who has decided to retire after more than 20 years in the technology industry. Phillips joined the ScanSource team in 2006 when her company, T2 Supply, was purchased by ScanSource, Inc. She has served as president of both the T2 Supply sales unit and, most recently, ScanSource Communications when it was created by a merger of T2 and the Paracon sales unit in October 2007. Phillips played a significant role in the success of the merger and the subsequent management and leadership of the new company.

“Jill’s great passion for the business and her excellent relationship skills were highly appreciated by employees, customers and vendors,” said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc. “We believe that Jill’s style of business and strong work ethic will be continued by her successor, Buck Baker.”

As president of ScanSource Communications, Baker will oversee the strategic management of the company’s sales, marketing and merchandising functions. He brings more than 18 years of technology distribution experience to this position, with more than 13 of those years at ScanSource, Inc. Baker has led the strategic direction of both the Catalyst Telecom and ScanSource POS & Barcoding merchandising teams. He has been instrumental in managing the company’s vendor relationships from a marketing, inventory and leadership perspective. In addition, Baker has provided guidance and direction to the sales teams, enabling them to enhance their product knowledge and selling skills.

“Buck has played a very important role in the development and strengthening of our merchandising teams, from serving as a leader for our internal group to cultivating strong relationships with our vendor partners,” said Scott Benbenek, president of worldwide operations, ScanSource, Inc. “We will certainly miss Jill, her enthusiasm and leadership, but we know the company is in great hands with Buck as we continue to grow our communications business.”
