GEORGE H. SIEGEL APPOINTED VICE PRESIDENT, VOLT TECHNICAL SERVICES
DIVISION, OF VOLT INFORMATION SCIENCES
NEW YORK, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- William Shaw, president of Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOLT), today announced that George H. Siegel, formerly vice president-technology at Allied Signal International, Inc., will join the Volt Information Sciences as vice president, Volt Technical Services. "I look forward with great enthusiasm to the outstanding expertise and experience that George Siegel can bring to Volt," said Shaw.
Siegel will have overall responsibility for Volts' East, West and Northwest region technical services divisions. Jerome Block, Howard Zimmerman, and Margie McKay, vice presidents of the respective divisions, will report to him.
Shaw noted that in the past few years it has become obvious that in order to obtain large nationwide contracts, the three groups need a single individual to maximize their overall effectiveness. Today, more than ever, when seeking work from all parts of the world, Volt must be organized to compete in that market. Placing the three divisions under one leader will enable the three operations to coordinate activities, build on each others' strengths and enhance Volt's position in the technical services market place.
For the past two years, Siegel has been the principal in Point North Associates, a management consulting firm specializing in new business development on a global basis. From 1984 to 1990, he served as vice president-technology at Allied-Signal International Inc., responsible for global technology evaluation, collaborative R&D, and joint ventures. Before assuming that position, he was vice president-engineering, with corporate technology responsibilities.
Siegel joined the Bendix Corporation in 1974 as vice president and general manager of the Flight Systems Division. In 1977, he became Bendix's chief technical officer; in 1979, he became vice president and general manager of Bendix Diesel Engine Controls Division; and in 1983 he was appointed vice president and group executive of Bendix Automation Company.
Before joining Bendix, Siegel spent more than 20 years with the General Electric Company in engineering and business management positions. He earned a B.S. in electrical engineering from City College of New York and an M.I.E. from New York University, and is a registered professional engineer in New York state.
