 CLEVELAND, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Lamalie Amrop International, one of the nation's leading executive search firms, has appointed Charles E. Wallace, Jr., former managing partner of the Cleveland office, to lead the firm's new manufacturing and industrial technology practice. Wallace will coordinate the practice from Cleveland.
 In turn, Dr. Charles E. Taylor, a partner in the Cleveland office, will become managing partner.
 "Many of Lamalie's searches involve manufacturing industries, which, in order to compete in the evolving global community, must keep up with cutting-edge research and development and technology transfer," said John F. Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Lamalie Amrop International. "The new manufacturing and industrial technology will allow Lamalie to approach the changing market as an organized discipline, providing increased service to our clients," added Johnson.
 Wallace has been managing partner of the Cleveland office since 1989. Prior to joining Lamalie in 1979, Wallace was a consultant with McKinsey & Company, Inc. for 12 years in the Washington and Cleveland offices. Previously, he was an economic analyst for the Sun Oil Company and a project engineer at the Westinghouse Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory.
 Since joining Lamalie in 1979, Wallace has focused on senior-level searches in marketing, manufacturing, higher education, and engineering. He also has worked extensively with venture capital firms in locating executives, particularly in advanced manufacturing.
 Wallace's recent advanced manufacturing searches include Dr. Michael Salkind, president of the Cleveland-based Ohio Aerospace Institute, and Dr. Robert M. Harbour, managing director and chief executive officer of the Australian government's Australian Technology Group. Both organizations are committed to enhancing the economic competitiveness of their constituents through the adaptation of advanced technology to commercial uses.
 Charles Taylor joined Lamalie in 1991 after serving for eight years in several executive-level positions with BP America. Prior to joining BP, Taylor, who holds a Ph.D. from Ohio State University, was president of Wilberforce University from 1976 to 1984. At Lamalie, he has specialized in searches for top executives in financial, higher education, and not-for-profit organizations.
 Lamalie Amrop International, the United States partner of Amrop International, was founded in 1967 in Cleveland. Amrop International has 54 offices in 32 countries. With professional fees of over $70 million in 1992, it is the sixth largest retained executive search practice in the world. The firm's partners conduct over 2,000 searches annually, providing the broadest geographic coverage of any search firm worldwide.
 Lamalie, which is headquartered in Cleveland, also has offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New York and Tampa, Fla. Lamalie has conducted searches for many of the most prestigious corporations and institutions in America, including a significant number of the Fortune 500.
 Lamalie's practice focuses on assignments for board members, chief executive officers, chief operating officers, and other senior executive positions. While the firm's practice spans all major industries, it has established practice groups in information technology, energy, health care, financial services, real estate, and, now, manufacturing and industrial technology.
