Hooper Holmes Names Chris Behling President of Health & Wellness Division

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hooper Holmes, Inc. (Amex: HH) today announced that it has appointed Chris Behling as President of the Company's new Health & Wellness Division.

Mr. Behling joined Hooper Holmes in July 2006 as Senior Vice President and Business Development Officer, charged to develop and implement the company's strategic move into new opportunities, including the wellness market. The division has made rapid progress since it was established in January 2007, passing the 25,000th screening mark in July. It has also signed up a number of major clients, including Healthways, Inc.

The Health & Wellness Division takes advantage of Hooper Holmes' ability to arrange a medical exam anywhere in the U.S., and leverages the company's state-of-the-art testing laboratory and medical device manufacturer, Heritage Labs. It provides scheduling support, fulfillment of supplies, blood collection kits, medical screenings, lab testing, and data transmission, and enables customers to gather data earlier in the disease management process and better target interventional health support services.

"The decision to create a stand alone Health & Wellness Division under Chris' leadership underlines our belief that this rapidly-developing field represents a significant growth opportunity for Hooper Holmes," said James Calver, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hooper Holmes. "Hooper Holmes is now well positioned to leverage its core expertise in the collection and analysis of health data anywhere in the country and maximize its position in a market which is growing at around 30% a year."

Prior to joining Hooper Holmes, Mr. Behling founded LifeSource Executive Benefits & Insurance Services, a national brokerage agency which distributed life insurance through wire houses, banks, and broker-dealers. Prior to starting LifeSource, Mr. Behling held senior positions at AXA/Equitable, including Vice President of Strategy Fulfillment. Mr. Behling began his career at Princeton Consultants where he worked in the insurance practice area, successfully completing projects for several major insurance companies. In addition to his new role leading the Company's Wellness division, Chris will continue to dedicate time to overall business development at Hooper Holmes and to supervising the underwriting services division.
