Premier Alliance Announces Closing of Ecological, LLC Acquisition
Mr. Joseph J. Grano, Jr. Named Chairman of the Board of Directors

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- Premier Alliance Group, Inc., (OTCQB: PIMO) a strategic advisory, services, and solutions firm focused on providing 360 degrees Intelligence Delivery through our Knowledge Based Expertise ("KBE"), today announced the closing of the acquisition of Ecological, LLC, a New York-based environmental sustainability company, in a cash and stock transaction. Mr. Joseph J. Grano, Jr., Chairman and Co-founder of Ecological, will become Premier's non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.

"I look forward to joining Premier Alliance as Chairman of the Board," said Mr. Grano. "The combination of these two firms enables us to offer clients a unique service that normally requires multiple vendors. With today's more challenging energy environment, which includes added regulation along with cost concerns, I believe our model will offer a competitive advantage."

"We are pleased to acquire Ecological, a company which we believe will bring tremendous value to Premier by helping us further expand offerings in our Energy Solutions business segment," said Mark Elliott, CEO of Premier Alliance. "This acquisition enables us to plant a flag in the Northeast with a presence emanating from New York City. Additionally, Ecological occupies an important strategic position as it relates to energy regulation in New York City. This will further our competitive advantage in this sector as we aggressively grow the business unit and attempt to win a higher percentage of the opportunities we are currently seeking.

"Plus adding a respected executive such as Joseph Grano to lead our Board of Directors will help us add to our growing business network of contacts, while providing strong leadership for management. We believe Mr. Grano's strong credibility in the business community will benefit Premier Alliance as we continually seek to rapidly expand our business. Ecological has built an impressive backlog to meet the required new regulations requiring many commercial buildings to have energy benchmarking and audits. This regulation takes effect in 2013. Following the closing of the acquisition, Premier Alliance will have an established footprint on the East and West coasts for providing energy efficiency and sustainability services. Together, we look forward to leveraging our relationships, clientele, and geographic footprint."
