Mr. DiRenzo is a Vice-Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., a global leader in commercial real estate with 163 offices in 49 countries and more than 11,000 employees. Cushman & Wakefield manage more than 325 million square feet of commercial real estate worldwide for corporations and investors.

Mr. DiRenzo brings to DWS Defense Systems more than 40 years of experience in commercial real estate. Throughout his career, he has been responsible for leasing and sales transactions of nearly 50 million square feet, and is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished real estate professionals in the industry today.

Mr. DiRenzo joins Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik and Scott L.

"We are proud to have Mr. DiRenzo join the DWS Defense System family. We believe his expertise and experience at Cushman & Wakefield as well as his relationships in the real estate arena will be an asset to the Company," says CEO Daniel McPhee.

"I am honored to be joining the advisory board of DWS," said Mr. DiRenzo. "I look forward to working closely with Mr. McPhee and the other members of the advisory board. I am pleased to be able to bring my experience to assist DWS Defense Systems in helping clients meet their security fiber optic technology needs."

DWS Defense Systems was created in response to the growing security concerns expressed by the clients of DataWorld. In reaction to acts of domestic and international terrorism, businesses are searching for better ways to protect their buildings, and more importantly, to better protect the people who work in or visit these locations. DWS will offer one such solution -- high quality, state of the art security glass and the associated security system that will have numerous potential applications. Glass currently used in many buildings may potentially cause significant injury if shattered. The DWS solution can minimize this problem and provide greater security to the building's occupants. The in-house architect and engineering team at DWS, who have over 80 years of combined experience in the security and defense field, will be able to assess and customize a turnkey security solution for any type or size of business. DWS Defense Systems and its highly skilled team will design, develop, install and market specialty products and equipment for the security needs of domestic and international businesses. The company is already in negotiations with a number of Fortune 1000 companies to provide security solutions that will be tailor made to suit each company's particular needs.
