NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelerize New Media Inc.

Mr. Lin, who joined the Accelerize in June of 2013 as Vice President of Finance, brings a wealth of financial experience to this position, particularly high growth technology companies.

"Michael's appointment to the position of Chief Financial Officer is an important step in the evolution of Accelerize, as we strategically position our company for strong business growth and begin to delineate a path to increase our corporate visibility and shareholder value. This is the first step in improving our corporate structure and governance to be ready to reach our goal of uplisting to a major stock exchange sometime in 2015 and we intend to work diligently in the coming quarters to be ready as our business continues to expand on a fast track," stated Brian Ross, President and CEO of Accelerize. "As CFO, Michael brings a unique skill set to our company in that he has experience managing dynamic young companies in multiple phases of growth including early stage development, strategic acquisitions, organization building, and eventual mergers or sales. His experience will be invaluable as we enter a new phase in our business and corporate growth."

Mr. Lin has served as CFO at several technology and software related companies including Uniloc USA, Inc. and its subsidiary Blue Cava, a market leader in device identification. At Blue Cava his responsibilities included managing three years of auditing, as well as working directly with the CEO to successfully develop a patent litigation strategy which led to a $388 million patent infringement judgment against Microsoft. He served as Vice President of Finance and a member of the board of directors of Fast Search and Transfer ("FAST"), a leader in the enterprise search and search technology space, where he led the financial evaluation and due diligence on all acquisition and joint venture targets eventually closing acquisitions totalling $50 million in deal value and multiple joint ventures with global 500 companies. During his six-year tenure at FAST the company grew from $30 million in revenue with 100 employees to $200 million in revenue with over 850 employees.  In 2008 he worked to help complete the sale of FAST to Microsoft for $1.2 billion.

Mr. Lin added, "This is a very exciting time for Accelerize as we build CAKE into a leader in the fast-growing, SaaS-based enterprise performance marketing space. I believe this company has all the right ingredients to build exceptional value for shareholders. We have a cutting-edge technology addressing a significant need in a large and expanding market with a team that is dedicated to deliver optimal performance for our customers. We also have increased financial flexibility to enable us to opportunistically grow through our recently obtained $3 million credit facility with Square 1 Bank."
