BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Dec. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (“Synchronoss” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SNCR), a leading global provider of personal cloud software and services, today announced the appointment of Kevin Rendino as a new director, effective December 4, 2023. Mr. Rendino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 180 Degree Capital Corp., is a respected leader with a distinguished career in financial services, bringing extensive expertise in capital markets, value investing, and corporate governance.

Kevin Rendino assumed the role of Chairman and CEO at 180 Degree Capital in the first half of 2017, following his appointment to its board in 2016. With over three decades of Wall Street experience, he provides a wealth of knowledge and a keen strategic mindset that will be additive to the board. Prior to his time at 180 Degree Capital, Mr. Rendino managed the Basic Value Fund at BlackRock/Merrill Lynch. Mr. Rendino previously served on the boards of both Synacor Inc., from 2019 until its sale to Centre Lane Partners in 2021, as well as TheStreet, Inc., from 2017 until its sale to The Arena Group Holdings, Inc in 2019. He has also served on the Board of Directors for Rentech Inc., and was Chairman of Partners for Health, a public charity addressing critical community health needs.

“Kevin is a highly regarded figure in the investment community, and his insights will complement the talents and experience of the Synchronoss board as we continue to focus on delivering value for our customers and shareholders,” said Stephen Waldis, Synchronoss Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board. “In Kevin’s seven years at the helm of 180 Degree Capital, he has had an impressive track record working with small cap public technology companies, and we believe Kevin will provide substantial value as we embark on the next chapter of Synchronoss’ journey.”

Mr. Rendino added: “Synchronoss is strategically positioned as a premier provider of Cloud solutions to Tier One global customers, and its recent divestiture of non-core businesses underscores the Company’s commitment to driving margin expansion and generating free cash flow from its high-performing Cloud business. I am honored to join this accomplished board of directors and look forward to contributing my experience and perspective as the Company executes its strategic vision for future growth.”

Jeff Miller, President and CEO of Synchronoss, added: “In light of our strategic shift towards a Cloud-only business, Kevin’s appointment to our board comes at an important time for Synchronoss. His extensive financial expertise and strategic acumen will be additive to our current board and helpful in guiding us toward a future of sustainable, profitable growth. We look forward to his contributions as we focus on unlocking the full potential of our Cloud operations.”
