 COLEMAN TO BE NAMED TEKTRONIX VICE PRESIDENT;


APPLE COMPUTER EXECUTIVE TO FILL NEW POST AS VP FOR MATERIALS OPERATIONS
 WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Deborah A. Coleman, considered by the computer industry to be one of the driving forces behind Apple Computer's successful expansion story, will be named as vice president for Materials Operations at Tektronix Inc. (NYSE: TEK), company officials announced today.
 Coleman, 39, has been described by the Wall Street Journal as "one of the highest ranking women in Silicon Valley." She has been one of the handful of women engaged in senior technological management in the nation. She will join Tektronix on Nov. 11, according to Del Yocam, president and chief operating officer.
 Most recently, Coleman has served as Apple's vice president for Information Systems and Technology, a position she's held since 1990. She joined Apple in 1981 and helped plan and later manage the company's state-of-the-art Macintosh computer manufacturing plant in Fremont, Calif.
 "Her manufacturing expertise is recognized worldwide, and her financial management skills are a major factor behind Apple's growth in the 1980s," said Yocam, who worked with Coleman when he was Apple chief operating officer.
 "At Tektronix, Debi will play a leadership role in supervising materials, procurement and logistics. She will help execute Tektronix' plan to deliver increased value to the shareholders. We're eager to have her on the Tektronix management team," Yocam added.
 Coleman held several key executive positions at Apple, including vice president for Operations (1985-87) and vice president of Finance and chief financial officer (1987-89). As vice president for Operations, Coleman was responsible for Apple's manufacturing in the United States, the Far East and Europe, as well as worldwide procurement and related engineering responsibilities.
 Coleman holds a B.A. degree in English from Brown University (1974) and an M.B.A. from Stanford University (1978).
 Tektronix Inc. is a leading supplier of electronic products and systems. Products include electronic test and measurement equipment, desktop color printers, computer network terminals and display products, as well as television systems and television production equipment. Revenues for fiscal year 1992 totaled $1.3 billion.
