Stephen Zarrilli Named CEO of US Interactive

Internet services company US Interactive Inc. said that Stephen
Zarrilli has
been appointed chief executive officer of the firm.

Zarrilli, 37, one of the company’s original employees, had previously been
the company’s chief financial and administrative officer. He succeeds Larry
W. Smith.

Smith, who resigned his position as CEO March 1, remains a
significant shareholder and will continue to serve on US Interactive’s Board
of Directors.

“Steve has played an integral part in our growth over the last few years,”
said Eric Pulier, chairman and co-founder of US Interactive. “His proven
experience and management skills will enable US Interactive to fully realize
our vision of becoming the most significant Internet Professional Services
firm in the world.”

Zarrilli joined US Interactive as one of the company’s original employees in
January 1995 after 11 years with Deloitte & Touche, where he was directly
responsible for the creation of the firm’s Emerging
Business practice in Philadelphia, PA. Zarrilli gained significant
entrepreneurial experience prior to joining US Interactive, as the director
of finance for American Gaming Corp.

Zarrilli was instrumental in the formation of the new US Interactive, the
current company
formed through a merger-of-equals with Digital Evolution Inc. in 1998.
