AL ZETTLEMOYER ELECTED UNISYS SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT; NAMED PRESIDENT OF PARAMAX SYSTEMS CORPORATION

 MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today that its board of directors has elected Albert F. Zettlemoyer as a senior vice president of the corporation and has also named him president of Paramax Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unisys. Zettlemoyer succeeds Frederick F. Jenny, who died of cancer Nov. 30.
 Paramax, headquartered in McLean, provides advanced integrated systems, electronic products, professional services and life cycle support to enable its customers to manage complex information and make critical decisions in real time. Paramax's core markets include civil and defense agencies of the U.S. government, Canada and other nations worldwide.
 Zettlemoyer takes the reigns of the organization as it strives to reposition itself into a highly focused, defense and non-defense, market-driven organization, capitalizing on its large installed base, its technology discriminators and its experience in managing the integration of complex information systems. Under Zettlemoyer's leadership, Paramax plans to achieve a 50-50 defense/non-defense business mix and expand into new markets. The plan also focuses on key strategies in areas where Paramax is strong -- combat systems; command, control, communications and intelligence; air traffic control; postal services; weather systems; and professional services -- and on the need to create new thrusts in civil government and international and commercial areas.
 Zettlemoyer stressed that Paramax will continue to emphasize strategic partnerships. "The basis for our growth will be the enhancement of our $6 billion installed base and the exploitation of our technological know-how," said Zettlemoyer. "The significant issues associated with growing the business will be a focus for all of our employees and will provide an excellent opportunity for innovation and creative change. One constant throughout the repositioning of our business, however, will be our continued emphasis on quality in the workplace. We will maintain a high standard of ethics and integrity, improve employee recognition and morale, and work to help employees develop and acquire key skills."
 Zettlemoyer previously had been vice president, corporate planning, for Unisys Corporation. In this capacity, he assisted Unisys chairman and chief executive officer James A. Unruh in the rollout of the Unisys strategic and operating direction for the future. Prior to this, Zettlemoyer was vice president and general manager of Paramax's Electronic Systems division, the position he held since joining Unisys in 1986. Before coming to Unisys, Zettlemoyer served IBM in various management and executive positions.
 Zettlemoyer earned a B.S. degree in engineering physics from Lehigh University. He also completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard University. He currently serves on the board of governors of the Electronic Industries Association and is a director of the First Virginia Bank in Falls Church, Va.
 Paramax Systems Corporation, headquartered in McLean, is a $2 billion information systems company with 16,000 employees. A subsidiary of Unisys Corporation, Blue Bell, Pa., Paramax is an experienced leader in providing advanced integrated systems, electronic products and related professional services for civil and defense agencies in the United States, Canada and nations worldwide.
