ScanSource, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC}, the leading international value-added distributor of specialty
technology products, has announced that Maurice van Rijn has been named Managing Director of the
company’s ScanSource Europe POS & Barcoding business unit. In his position, Mr van Rijn will be
responsible for leading the strategic direction and management of sales, product marketing and inventory
management for the Company’s pan-European operations.

Mr van Rijn joined ScanSource in May 2002 as part of the Company’s acquisition of ABC Distribution and
brings 23 years of sales and sales management experience in IT distribution to the role. He previously
served as Sales Director for nine years where he was instrumental in the success of ScanSource’s
European operations, which were launched in 2002.

"Maurice has been a key part of the team that led the company to become one of the largest value-added
distributors in Europe,” said Xavier Cartiaux, President of International Operations, ScanSource Inc. “We
are confident that not only will Maurice use his experience and talents to continue to build on the strong
partnerships that we have with resellers and vendors but will also continue to work with all our internal
team to enhance the already vast range of value-added services we provide partners at both ends of the
channel. He will bring strong leadership and clear direction to the role.”

“We’ve worked closely with ScanSource and Maurice for several years now and he’s always been key in
helping us to win more business,” said Michel Haagmans, Director, Re-Vision, a ScanSource reseller.
“Maurice and his team have given us marketing support, organised training days with us and have
matched us up with potential partners across Europe as we’ve grown into a major player in the market.
Maurice acts as a hub around which the AIDC channel operates so I’m delighted for his promotion,
believe he’ll do a great job for all ScanSource partners and wish him luck in his new role.”

Maurice van Rijn’s promotion to Managing Director of the POS & Barcoding business follows the
appointment of Mr Cartiaux to the role of President of International Operations, ScanSource Inc.
ScanSource Europe helps resellers to grow their business through services, such as stock management,
financial services, free-of-charge technical support, Professional Services and customer services. Mr van
Rijn will be looking to continue to enhance that offering with unique tools, such as the existing online
mobile application store AppSource, international partner-matching tool SUMO and the recently upgraded
