 WANG NAMES UNITED KINGDOM COUNTRY MANAGER
 LOWELL, Mass., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang Laboratories, Inc.


(AMEX: WAN.B WAN.C), announced today another step in the implementation of its worldwide restructuring program to return the company to profitability and to enable a successful and timely emergence from Chapter 11 protection.
 Rick Ellis has been named general manager of Wang, United Kingdom. In his new assignment, Mr. Ellis will be responsible for Wang's sales, service and support operations in one of the company's largest and most important subsidiaries. He currently serves as general manager of Wang New Zealand and will retain that responsibility as acting general manager until a successor is chosen in the near future. Mr. Ellis will report directly to Joseph M. Tucci, executive vice president, operations, and will begin his new responsibilities in the United Kingdom on Sept. 21.
 Richard W. Miller, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "Rick Ellis is one of the most successful international executives at Wang. He was chosen for his new assignment not only for his track record of success, but because he is particularly well suited to our customer profile in the United Kingdom.
 "I have complete confidence in Rick's ability to meet the needs of our large base of loyal customers in the United Kingdom and to effectively lead one of our most important subsidiaries."
 Mr. Ellis said, "I am committed to helping the United Kingdom play a key role in Wang's future success. I look forward to my new assignment and to continuing Wang's tradition of quality service and support to our customers there."
 A native of New Zealand, Mr. Ellis joined Wang in 1983 and has been promoted to several increasingly responsible management positions in Wang's sales and marketing organization. Before joining Wang, Mr. Ellis held sales, marketing, and management positions at Burroughs Corp., Australia and New Zealand.
 Mr. Ellis and his wife, Sandie, have two children and will relocate to the United Kingdom. He was graduated from Auckland University with a bachelors degree in commerce.
