CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS PICKS TOP 10 NEWSMAKERS FOR 1992

 DETROIT, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Crain's Detroit Business picked the top 10 business executives who made news in 1992. One of the 10 will be honored as the Crain's Newsmaker of the Year at a luncheon meeting of the Economic Club of Detroit at the Westin Hotel in Detroit on Tuesday, Feb. 16. Announcement of the winner will be in Crain's Detroit Business on Jan. 18.
 The top picks include:
 -- Randolph Agley: Agley's deep-discount F&M Distributors made a successful public offering in 1992, shortly after moving its headquarters to Stroh River Place.
 -- Joseph Antonini: From power centers to Super Kmart to a $3 billion overhaul of existing Kmart stores, Antonini continues to shake up the retail giant. Expect more overseas growth in years to come.
 -- Dennis Archer: Granted, the former Michigan Supreme Court justice's candidacy for mayor surprised no one, but it was still big news. The big question, of course, remains: Will he have to face incumbent Coleman Young?
 -- Nathan Forbes: This young developer headed the team that effected the former Somerset Mall's transition from elegant wanna-be to the glittering crown jewel of Troy.
 -- William Henry: Stroh Brewery isn't completely healthy yet, but it's no longer considered terminal. Under Henry's leadership, Stroh is debt-free and reportedly profitable.
 -- Robert Hurst: Michigan Bell's new president is responsible for implementing some of that company's biggest changes. He is the first African American to hold the post of president. He also was among the few local execs to attend President-elect Bill Clinton's recent economic summit.
 -- Michael Ilitch: Was there any way Ilitch didn't make news in 1992? He bought the Tigers, announced a proposal to turn Joe Louis Arena into an aquarium and put Little Caesar's in a position to possibly overtake Domino's as the No. 2 pizza chain.
 -- Tom King: King wore two hats in 1992 and made news in both of them. At the Metropolitan Detroit Convention & Visitors Bureau, he was the point man in hosting three national meeting-planner groups here. King also was instrumental in luring World Cup soccer to the Pontiac Silverdome, and now works for World Cup USA 1994.
 -- Deborah McGriff: The Detroit schools superintendent took on the teachers' union and suffered through a lengthy strike in which her school-empowerment program was a major issue.
 -- Heinz Prechter: As head of the President's Export Council, Prechter was lead defender of President George Bush's Asian trade mission. His company, ASC Inc., continues to expand.
