SCEcorp's MISSION ENERGY UNIT NAMES EDWARD R. MULLER OF WHITTAKER CORP. AS NEW PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

 IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Mission Energy Co., a subsidiary of SCEcorp, has named Edward R. Muller as president and chief executive officer, effective Aug. 23.
 Muller, 41, currently is vice president, chief financial officer, general counsel and secretary of Whittaker Corp., a Los Angeles-based aerospace firm.
 John E. Bryson, chairman and chief executive officer of SCEcorp, said that "we are delighted to have Ed take on this leadership role at Mission Energy. He brings an exceptional combination of financial, legal and international business skills to this important job." Bryson also said that Muller will complement well the outstanding skills and experience of the existing Mission Energy team that has brought the company to its prominent position in the independent power production business.
 Alan J. Fohrer, senior vice president and chief financial officer of SCEcorp, has served as chief executive officer of Mission Energy on an interim basis since April. He will relinquish the Mission Energy chief executive officer position when Muller joins the company. James S. Pignatelli, who was chief executive officer until May, is now serving as a consultant to the company.
 Mission Energy is engaged in development, construction and operation of non-utility electric generation facilities both in the United States and in overseas markets. It is one of the nation's largest firms in the rapidly growing non-utility power industry. Mission Energy is the largest non-utility subsidiary of SCEcorp, which also owns Southern California Edison Co., the electric utility serving Southern and Central California.
 Muller received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and a law degree from Yale Law School. Prior to joining Whittaker, Muller served as a law clerk for a federal district judge and practiced law from 1977 to 1983 with the Washington, D.C., firm of Leva, Hawes, Symington, Martin & Oppenheimer. He joined Whittaker in 1983 with responsibilities related to its Middle East health care programs and HMO business. More recently he has held broader responsibilities as the company's general counsel, and, at various times, as chief administrative officer and chief financial officer. During Muller's tenure at Whittaker he has played a major role in the acquisition and divestiture of varied business operations in the United States and abroad and in the financial and tax structuring of large transactions.
 He is a trustee of the Exceptional Children's Foundation of Los Angeles, and served previously as a member of the Brookings Institution's Task Force on Civil Justice Reform. He is married, has two children, and resides in Santa Monica, Calif.
