AMERITECH ANNOUNCES ORGANIZATION CHANGES

 AMERITECH ANNOUNCES ORGANIZATION CHANGES
 CHICAGO, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Ameritech Chairman and Chief


Executive Officer William L. Weiss today announced a number of organization changes designed to position the company to operate more efficiently in the future. The changes include the appointment of new presidents of four Ameritech operating units.
 "We're exploring how we can position ourselves in our increasingly competitive environment," Weiss said. "We're establishing an interim organization that will enable us to manage our business while we create an organization design for the future. We're doing this so we can continue to be responsive to the needs of our customers, our shareowners and our employees."
 Ameritech currently is examining its structure to explore its options in the evolving information industry. The planning effort is scheduled for completion in early 1993.
 The changes are effective June 1. In addition to his responsibilities as chairman and chief executive officer, Weiss assumes the presidency of the Ameritech Bell Group, filling the position now occupied by Robert L. Barnett, Ameritech vice chairman and president of the Bell Group, who has decided to take early retirement. The Bell Group includes Ameritech's five Bell operating companies, Ameritech Information Systems and Ameritech Services.
 Robert L. Hurst, Michigan Bell vice president of customer sales and service, will become president of Michigan Bell, replacing Kenneth E. Millard, who is resigning to pursue other career interests.
 Richard C. Notebaert, president of Indiana Bell, will become president of Ameritech Services. He will succeed Harold E. D'Orazio, who has decided to take early retirement.
 Thomas J. Reiman, Indiana Bell vice president of sales and service, will become president of Indiana Bell, replacing Notebaert.
 John E. Rooney, Ameritech vice president and treasurer, will become president of Ameritech Mobile Communications, replacing Bruce R. DeMaeyer, who has decided to take early retirement. A replacement for Rooney has not been named.
 Hurst, 49, who was named Michigan Bell president, has held a number of management and executive positions in marketing, human resources, labor relations and support services at Michigan Bell and Ameritech Services, where he was named vice president of finance and administration in 1987. He began his career at Michigan Bell in 1969.
 Notebaert, 44, named Ameritech Services president, has been president of Indiana Bell since 1989. He began his career in 1969 with Wisconsin Bell and held a number of positions in operations and marketing. In 1983 he joined AT&T and, later that year, Ameritech Communications. He was appointed president of Ameritech Mobile Communications in 1986.
 Reiman, 43, named Indiana Bell president, began his career with AT&T in 1974 and has held positions with Michigan Bell and Ameritech. An attorney, Reiman was Ameritech's vice president and associate general counsel before moving to Indiana Bell as vice president, general counsel and secretary in 1988.
 Rooney, 50, named Ameritech Mobile Communications president, joined Ameritech in 1990. Previously, he was a senior vice president of Bridgestone Firestone, Inc. and general manager of its Mastercare Auto Services Centers. Before joining Firestone in 1981, he held various financial positions with Pullman, Inc. of Chicago.
 "We wish Bob Barnett, Hal D'Orazio, Bruce DeMaeyer and Ken Millard well in their future endeavors," said Weiss. "They have made significant contributions to our business over the years."
 Ameritech is the parent of the Bell companies serving Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, as well as other information- related subsidiaries, both foreign and domestic, providing mobile communications, directory publishing, audiotex services, lease financing, systems integration and voice messaging. Its 1991 revenues were $10.8 billion.
