OTTAWA, May 15 /CNW Telbec/ - MOSAID Technologies Inc. (TSX:MSD), a leading intellectual property company, today continued to build its management team with the announcement of three senior appointments.

Phillip S. Shaer joins MOSAID's senior executive management team as Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. In his new position, Mr. Shaer will be responsible for the Company's legal strategy, as well as disclosure and corporate governance obligations.

Mr. Shaer obtained his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of Windsor and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Université Laval.

Michael B. Vladescu, formerly Vice President, Patents, is appointed Vice President, Licensing and Intellectual Property. Mr. Vladescu's appointment reflects his significant contributions to MOSAID's patent licensing success and its new focus on intellectual property licensing. In his new role, Mr. Vladescu will be responsible for the Company's patent licensing, prosecution and acquisition activities. Mr. Vladescu joined MOSAID in 1996 with previous experience in the field of design analysis. He has a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and an Executive MBA from Queen's University.

"Phil, Michael and Jin-Ki have consistently demonstrated the skills that are needed to drive MOSAID to the next level as a successful intellectual property company," said John Lindgren, President and CEO, MOSAID.
