accesso® Technology Group plc
(the "Group" or "Company")
accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO), the premier technology solutions provider to leisure, entertainment and cultural markets, confirms that, as announced in the Group's preliminary results announcement of 18th March 2020, Tom Burnet, a non-executive director of the Group, did not seek re-election to the Board at today's AGM and has now stood down from his position.
Tom Burnet joined accesso as CEO in 2010, and served as the Group's Executive Chairman between 2016 and 2019 before becoming a non-executive director on its Board. During his time with the Group he has been instrumental in accesso's development, overseeing five acquisitions and driving the Group to a leading position within its industry.
Bull Russell, Non-Executive Chairman of accesso said:
"Tom has built Accesso from Lo-Q, the pioneer of virtual queuing, into a leading technology player across the global leisure industry. During his ten years with the Group he's expanded its capability significantly, building a first-class product-set and an enviable client-base reflecting Accesso's unique ability to deliver value for operators and guests alike.
Given the Group's recent virtual queueing wins to facilitate social distancing at Walabi Holland and Holiday World Indiana, it's clear the original idea Tom harnessed, that digital guest experiences would be the future of our industry, remains as relevant as ever. That insight has driven the Group's success and remains at the heart of everything Accesso does today.
Tom leaves with the Board's deepest thanks for all he has contributed, and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours."

Currently serving over 1,000 clients in 30 countries around the globe, accesso's solutions help our clients streamline operations, generate increased revenues, improve guest satisfaction and harness the power of data to educate business and marketing decisions.
accesso invests heavily in research and development because our industries demand it, our clients benefit from it and it makes a positive impact on the guest experience.
Our commitment to improving the guest experience and helping our clients increase revenue is the core of our business. Our technology solutions allow venues to increase the volume and range of on- and off-site spending and to drive increased transaction-based revenue through cutting-edge ticketing, point-of-sale, virtual queuing, distribution and experience management software.
Many of our team members come from backgrounds working within the attractions and cultural industry. In this way, we are experienced operators who run a technology company serving attractions operators, versus a technology company that happens to serve the market. Our staff understands the day-to-day operations of managing complex venues and the challenges this creates, and together we strive to provide our clients and their guests with technology that empowers them to do more and enjoy more. From our agile development team to our dedicated client service specialists, every team member knows that their passion, integrity, commitment, teamwork and innovation are what drive our success.
