UNITED WATER RESOURCES NAMES CORRELL, DUGAN AND HASKEW TO NEW TOP SPOTS; ROBERT GERBER STEPS ASIDE AS PRESIDENT, BUT CONTINUES AS CHAIRMAN, CEO
 HARRINGTON PARK, N.J., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Donald L. Correll, 41, was elected president of United Water Resources (NYSE, UWR) at yesterday's meeting of the board of directors. Correll succeeds Robert A. Gerber, 63, who will continue as chairman of the board and chief executive officer. In announcing yesterday's actions, Gerber said the board also elected Dennis E. Dugan, 45, as executive vice president. George M. Haskew, Jr., 64, who is president of Hackensack Water Company, was elected vice chairman of the board.
 "We have created a strong and capable leadership team, well qualified to continue United Water's successes into the future," Gerber said. "Don Correll has built a reputation among utility officials and regulators as an unusually innovative financial expert and performance- oriented executive. Recently he has been directing the company's overall corporate strategy and its efforts to expand its water operations.
 "And since Dennis Dugan joined our company he has demonstrated a unique ability to set difficult goals in a number of areas and to meet or exceed them," said the chairman. "Dugan's broad experience is especially suited to United Water's range of non-utility businesses in real estate, environmental testing and metering services."
 The chairman said the executive moves are intended to provide an orderly management transition in anticipation of his own plans to retire at the end of next year. Gerber added that he and Haskew, who is also due to retire in 1992, will join Correll and Dugan in constituting a corporate management committee to guide the company during the transition period.
 Correll takes the helm as president of United Water. Before today's announcement he was vice president and chief financial officer of United Water, and was responsible for corporate and strategic planning. He is also senior vice president-finance for Hackensack Water Company and president of UWR Development Corporation, a United Water subsidiary which provides consulting services to real estate developers for the establishment of new water and sewerage utility systems.
 Correll joined Hackensack Water Company as assistant treasurer in 1976. He was elected treasurer the following year, and in 1982 he was named vice president-treasurer. When the company was restructured to form United Water Resources in 1983, Correll was elected treasurer of the new company. In 1986 he was named vice president-treasurer and chief financial officer of United Water. And in January 1988, Correll advanced to senior vice president-finance for Hackensack Water Company, also retaining his previous title.
 Before joining Hackensack Water, Correll was with Price Waterhouse. He is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and holds a master's degree (MBA) in finance from the New York University Graduate School of Business. He is a certified public accountant in the state of New York. He is a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Water Companies, chairman of its finance committee and is also on the organization's government relations committee. He is a past chairman of the organization's New Jersey chapter. He serves as president and a trustee of the Academic Decathlon of New Jersey and is a trustee of the Bergen-Passaic chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Correll lives in Ridgewood, N.J., with his wife and their three children.
 As United Water's executive vice president, Dennis E. Dugan will oversee the company's non-utility business activities. Prior to today's announcement he was president of two other United Water subsidiaries, Laboratory Resources, a three-state network of environmental laboratories, and Mid-Atlantic Utilities, which owns and operates small water and sewer systems. Dugan also had executive accountability for Metering Services, which provides automatic metering systems and related services to utilities and other industries.
 Dugan joined Laboratory Resources in 1987 as vice president and general manager, and was named president the following year. Previously, he held executive and managerial positions with Depcon Service Corporation and The BOC Group, Inc.
 Dugan holds a bachelor's degree in engineering from the United States Naval Academy, and earned a master's degree in business administration from Chapman College. He is a former Captain of the United States Marine Corps, and served in Viet Nam. Dugan and his wife live in New Providence, N.J., with their four children.
 George M. Haskew, Jr., assumes the new role of vice chairman of the board in addition to his current duties as president of Hackensack and Spring Valley water companies. Haskew joined Hackensack Water in 1965 as chief engineer and moved into positions of increasing responsibility. In 1988, Haskew was named president of the utilities.
 He is a member of the New Jersey State Water Supply Authority and an international director of the International Ozone Association. Haskew serves on the board of directors of the National Association of Water Companies and is a member of the Water Utility Council of the American Water Works Association.
 A past president of the board of trustees of Pascack Valley Hospital, Haskew currently serves as chairman of its parent company, Well Care Group, Inc. He and his wife are residents of Hillsdale, N.J., and have two children.
 Robert A. Gerber, who joined the company 30 years ago, has guided United Water as president since its formation in 1983 as the parent company of Hackensack Water Company. He had served since 1979 as president of Hackensack Water, and took on the responsibilities of chief executive officer in 1980. A director since 1983, Gerber was elected chairman of the board in 1988. He and his wife reside in Allendale, N.J., and have two children.
