KEY TRONIC ELECTS STANFORD PROFESSOR TO BOARD SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Key Tronic Corp.
(NASDAQ: KTCC), Spokane-based manufacturer of computer keyboards and other input devices, today announced a further expansion of its board to 11 directors, electing Stanford University professor Dr. Robert H. Cannon Jr.
The move to strengthen Key Tronic's board with active directors who have relevant experience was made in the company's first five months under the management group headed by Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hiller. Cannon, whose expertise includes automation and manufacturing science, has served as chairman of Stanford's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, as U.S. assistant secretary of Transportation, and as chief scientist, U.S. Air Force. He was formerly chairman of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science of California Institute of Technology, was chairman of the General Motors Science Advisory Committee, and served in a technical advisory capacity for a number of companies including United Technologies and Boeing. On Aug. 13, Key Tronic announced three other outside directors: Michael R. Hallman, former president and chief operating officer of Microsoft Corp. and previously vice president of Boeing and IBM; Clarence W. Spangle, who was chairman of Memorex and president of Honeywell Information Systems; and William E. Terry, executive vice president and director of Hewlett-Packard Co. With the change in management in March, four new directors were elected in addition to Stanley Hiller. They are Royce G. Pearson, a Hiller associate in other corporate turnarounds and now Key Tronic's president and chief operating officer; Kenneth F. Holtby, former senior vice president of The Boeing Co.; and Dale F. Pilz, former chief executive officer and president of GTE Sprint Communications. Three original Key Tronic directors continue on the board: its chairman, Wendell J. Satre; Lewis G. Zirkle, company founder and former chief executive officer; and Dr. Yacov A. Shamash, dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, State University of New York at Stoneybrook. -0- 9/1/92 /CONTACT: Steven Benner of Key Tronic, 509-928-8000/ (KTCC) CO: Key Tronic Corp.
