BUTTERFIELD NAMED PRESIDENT OF NEW PRENTICE HALL UNIT

 NEW YORK, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce Butterfield has been named president of Regents/Prentice Hall's newly formed ESL/ELT division, the company announced today. The English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) operation will function as an individual unit. Regents/Prentice Hall Vocational and Technical education will also become a separate division. Previously, both had been part of the combined Regents/Prentice Hall division.
 Dennis Hogan, formerly president of Regents/Prentice Hall, will become president of the Regents/Prentice Hall Vocational and Technical division.
 "This expansion allows us to sharpen our focus on two strategic areas, and to benefit from the leadership of Dennis and Bruce," said Henry Hirschberg, president of the Higher Education division of Paramount Communications' publishing operation. "There is a new political and economic mandate for enhanced vocational and technical education and workplace skill training. Similarly, we foresee continuing growth for ESL and ELT training in the international marketplace, as well as in the traditional secondary, higher education and adult education areas in the U.S. There is also significant opportunity within the business sector here and abroad."
 Mr. Butterfield had been president of the Longman Publishing Group, a subsidiary of Addison-Wesley since 1987. Prior to that, he had been corporate vice president at Scholastic, responsible for trade, school, library book and supplemental products. Mr. Butterfield received an MBA from the University of Connecticut in 1977, and an MA from Harvard University. He is a 1971 graduate, with honors, from Amherst College.
 Mr. Hogan has been with Prentice Hall for 16 years, beginning as a sales representative, then editor and publisher, responsible for business and economic books in the Prentice Hall College division. Mr. Hogan received a BA in 1974 from Boston College.
 Regents/Prentice Hall Vocational and ESL/ELT divisions are part of the educational publishing operations of Paramount Communications Inc.
