The Board of Vycon, Inc ('Vycon' or the 'Company'), the designer and

David, aged 62, began his career in investment banking when he joined Credit
Suisse First Boston where he worked from 1969-81. He then joined Samuel Montagu,
where he was Managing Director of Capital Markets, from 1981-85 and later joined
its parent Midland Bank (now HSBC) where he was Managing Director Global
Corporate Banking, from 1985-89. In 1990 David joined Guinness Mahon as Group
CEO and after eight years became Deputy Chairman of Investec Bank (U.K.) Ltd
following its acquisition of Guinness Mahon.

Commenting on the appointment, John Uttley, Chairman of Vycon, stated: 'David
Potter has a wealth of experience of businesses operating, like Vycon, on a
global basis, which will be invaluable to the Company during the next stage of
