 WASHINGTON, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: IRIC) (IRI), one of the world's leading publishers of motor fuels periodicals, today announced a series of key changes in its publications staff designed to further enhance its ability to serve the motor fuels industry with its publications, conferences and expertise in government and industry affairs.
 The company announced the addition of Rene G. Gonzalez as managing editor of its Houston-based magazine, Fuel Reformulation, effective March 1. Gonzalez, a chemical engineer as well as an accomplished editor, has served for the past three years as senior process editor at Hydrocarbon Processing. Prior to his position with Hydrocarbon Processing, he worked for six years at Coastal States Petroleum Company, Dowell Schlumberger, and Glitsch, Inc. His assignments included engineering design, unit operations and technical sales.
 IRI President Frederick L. Potter said, "The addition of Rene Gonzalez reflects our deep and growing commitment to providing the most precise and in-depth information possible pertaining to the business, government and technical challenges associated with new fuels, vehicles and changing government regulations."
 The addition of Gonzalez follows other changes at IRI. Daniel J. McKay was promoted to Houston bureau chief. McKay will continue as contributing editor of Fuel Reformulation and executive editor of Octane Week, a weekly newsletter covering gasoline composition, refining process technology, emissions research and regulations affecting motor fuel composition. Octane Week's editorial operations were moved Jan. 1 from IRI's corporate headquarters in Washington, D.C., to the company's Houston bureau in order to provide even closer contact with the refining industry and to better keep up with technology and strategies required to comply with new reformulated gasoline compositions and changing motor fuel regulations.
 Also at the start of the year, Kim R. Pearson joined the staff as general counsel and director of technical and environmental affairs. Pearson previously worked in the office of general counsel at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), then served as general counsel for the Renewable Fuels Association. He began his congressional experience with U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).
 James E. Peeples, Esq., director of legislative and regulatory affairs, assumes expanded responsibilities at the Washington headquarters. With 10 years of Washington experience, Peeples also will manage from Washington the publication of IRI's Federal and State Legislative and Regulatory Information Service, as well as major IRI consulting efforts. In support of this aspect of the business, IRI named David Gagner to the staff the focus on monitoring changing regulatory and legislative initiatives.
 IRI President Frederick L. Potter also announced that Maureen S. Lorenzetti was recently promoted to the position of assistant managing editor of Fuel Reformation. She will continue to work from the company's headquarters on Capitol Hill as executive editor of Oxy-Fuel News, the weekly newsletter devoted to technical, legal and marketplace growth of oxygenated gasoline, alcohol-based fuel components and alternative motor fuels.
 Kevin Adler was hired to serve as business development manager for IRI publications. Adler, the former editor of Octane Week, returns to IRI after earning his MBA degree. Adler also serves as a contributing editor to IRI publications.
 Celeste Furr also recently joined the organization as its executive conference coordinator. Furr is currently engaged in managing the World Conference on Refinery Processing and Reformulated Gasolines in San Antonio, Texas, March 23-25. Furr, formerly with the Republican National Committee, served as assistant to the director of external affairs and to the deputy chief of staff. Furr and Leslie Adler will serve as the primary contacts for the World Conference. To learn more about the World Conference, call Leslie Adler at 1-800-USA-FUEL.
 In addition to the above organizational changes, the company announced that Dick Walker and Tom Midgley of R.W. Walker will serve as the new West Coast regional advertising representative for Fuel Reformulation. From their offices in Santa Monica, Calif., Walker and Midgley will serve advertisers in 13 Western states. Hager Patton of Dallas-based Wageneck & Associates will remain advertising representative for all other U.S. locations.
 "These recent strategic personnel additions and promotions to our publications represent our deep and continuing commitment to providing industry and government with the best available information and analysis possible covering the world's changing motor fuel business," said Potter. He noted that the new members of the IRI publications team will be participating next month in the World Conference on Refinery Processing and Reformulated Gasolines.
