 EDUQUEST FORMED AS IBM COMPANY
 TO ADDRESS U.S. K-12 EDUCATION MARKETPLACE
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM today announced the formation of a company to better provide technology solutions for U.S. elementary and secondary education. The new company is EduQuest, the IBM Educational Systems Company.
 James E. Dezell Jr., IBM vice president, has been named president of EduQuest, whose people will continue to be IBM employees. Dezell will report to Ralph W. Clark, IBM vice president and general manager, industry and segment marketing, IBM U.S.
 Previously, Dezell headed IBM Educational Systems which since 1985 has worked with IBM marketing groups in the U.S. and developed solutions to meet the requirements of teachers, students and administrators -- kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12). This announcement gives the new company, based in Atlanta, its own dedicated marketing representatives throughout the U.S. and


increased autonomy to serve customers. EduQuest will also continue to develop specialized IBM education products for K-12.
 "Our group has always had a special mission in IBM," said Dezell. "We expect EduQuest to continue to build on our success as a leader in educational technology. As important as building a solid business is the role EduQuest will play in the restructuring of the American educational system."
