TAMPA, FL (October 22, 2012) – IC Intracom is proud to announce that Betsy Bennett has been named Chief Financial Officer as part of the company’s global leadership restructuring plan. In this role, Ms. Bennett will work in concert with the corporate leadership team to evolve IC Intracom – parent company of the Manhattan® and Intellinet Network Solutions® brands of computer products and accessories – into an organization prepared to compete in an ever-changing technology market, an increasingly complex retail channel, and shifting economic trends that affect everything from international trade to consumer buying trends.
In her 27-year career, Ms. Bennett has earned a well-deserved reputation as a senior-level financial executive, business leader and entrepreneur whose straightforward management style and expertise yield outstanding results and increased profitability.

In 1993 she was named CFO of PSCU in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she was responsible for the leadership and development of the organization’s finance division during a period that saw growth from $50-million to $325-million in revenue and from 100 to 800 employees. In 2002 she founded Bennett Consulting Services – a financial consulting practice that offered clients part-time CFO services, profitability analysis, Sarbanes-Oxley corporate governance consulting and strategic planning services.
Don Barry, the President of IC Intracom, said the following of Ms. Bennett: “Betsy’s expertise, enthusiasm and unique insights make her an ideal addition to the company’s new leadership team. She has a clear understanding of the vision we have for the company, and I believe that she is the person who can develop the financial systems and best processes we need to achieve our stated goals. I am excited to have her onboard with us and I have no doubt she will help take IC Intracom to the next level.”
Ms. Bennett is very active in the financial industry and the Tampa Bay-area business community. She is a member of Financial Executives International, the Florida Venture Forum, Vistage Florida, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Women Executive Leadership. She holds a position on the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement of West Central Florida, is a Charter Primary Mentor for Gazelle Labs, and is an active member of the Florida CFO Group.
When asked about her thoughts on joining IC Intracom, Ms. Bennett said, “IC Intracom is a company with a lot going for it right now, and the vision [company CEO] Michael Thiel and [President] Don Barry have laid out is very exciting. My job will be to align our finances and resources with the company’s new direction to ensure that vision becomes a reality. I’m looking forward to working with the leadership and the entire team to accomplish great things and kick start a new chapter in this company’s history.”
