Northcore Appoints Paul Godin as New Chairman of the Board of Directors

Founder and Inventor of Dutch Auction Patent Returns to Company to Drive Next Phase of Company's Growth (March 27, 2012)

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions, announced today it has appointed Paul Godin to the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Anthony DeCristofaro has elected to step down as Chairman to pursue his new venture in the social media space and Paul Godin has agreed to join Northcore in the role of chair. Mr. Godin was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Northcore and charted its initial explosive growth as Canada's first publicly listed Internet company. In addition, Mr. Godin was the inventor responsible for the Dutch auction process patent, which continues to be a cornerstone of the Northcore suite of IP holdings. Subsequent to his tenure with the firm, Mr. Godin has held senior leadership roles in a number of successful private and publically held corporations. With the company positioned for unprecedented growth through multiple organic and non-organic initiatives, Mr. Godin was overwhelmingly confirmed as the choice to help helm the firm though this crucial period.

"I would first like to thank Anthony for his contributions to the progress that the company has made during his tenure as chairman. His friends at Northcore wish him well as he shifts his focus to that of full time CEO at Qnext Corporation focused in the private cloud computing arena," said Amit Monga, CEO of Northcore Technologies. "On the heels of this progress, we are extremely excited to welcome Paul Godin as our incoming chair. Paul's historic contributions are woven into the fabric of Northcore and his passion and unbridled enthusiasm will have a huge impact in our future successes."

"It is rare for a technology company to survive the trials of time and remain relevant. It is even more rare for that firm to find itself resurgent and poised for a major breakthrough almost twenty years later. This company was always ahead of its time, but now the convergence of circumstance, technologies and consumer appetites means that we have the right products at the right time," said Paul Godin, incoming Chair of Northcore Technologies. "Social Commerce, Cloud Computing and Mobile Engagement have long been core to this company before they were stamped into the industry lexicon. I am proud to have returned to Northcore at this point in her history and look forward to telling the story and driving growth during this exciting time."
