North American DataCom Announces Management Changes

IUKA, Miss. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2001--North American DataCom, Inc. (OTCBB:NADA - news), the fiber optic and information technology company, announced the appointment of Jack Freeman as president and chief operating officer of the Company. Mr. Freeman will be responsible for daily operations of North American DataCom (NAD) and the installation of its broadband network. NAD also announced that Bryan T. Forman has resigned his position as NAD vice president and president of North American Infotech, the NAD broadband network subsidiary.

Robert R. Crawford will remain as chief executive officer and chairman of the board of directors, and will focus on the Company's long-term strategic development. ``While we will miss Bryan Forman's leadership and technical skills,'' said Mr. Crawford, ``the Company is excited that Jack Freeman has come on board. Mr. Freeman is well known throughout the fiber optic industry for his lengthy experience including the development of state-of-the-art fiber optic networks throughout the South as well as in Central and South America.'' NAD expects to announce its revised plan for its growing broadband network and data storage operations this month.

Mr. Freeman has provided 30 years of engineering and construction services to telecommunication companies. In 1980, Mr. Freeman accepted a position with a major telecommunications engineering and construction firm and was elected president four years later. In 1994 Mr. Freeman formed Lightwave Services, Inc., which provided turnkey solutions to the telecommunications industry. This company was a major contributing force in the receipt of a license to develop a carrier's carrier network in Mexico City, Mexico. Lightwave Services is now a business unit of Sun America Communications Corporation. Mr. Freeman remains as its President.

Mr. Freeman has aggressively built networks in the developing markets throughout the Southeastern United States. These southern and international networks provide bandwidth on demand to their clients. This is similar to the marketing plans NAD has for its broadband network.
