 MONTGOMERY WARD ANNOUNCES SENIOR OFFICER APPOINTMENT
 CHICAGO, Sept. 8 -- Bernard F. Brennan, chairman and chief executive officer of Montgomery Ward & Co., announced today the hiring of a senior executive to be president of the company, a newly created position.
 In his role as president, Harold (Hal) Kahn, 46, will be responsible for managing all merchandising and advertising strategies for the company. He will also serve as a member of the board of directors of Montgomery Ward.
 Kahn spent over 15 years with the Macy's organization, including assignments as chairman and CEO of Macy's California and chairman and CEO of Macy's South, which included Macy's and Bullock's.
 "Hal's extensive experience with Macy's -- a department store with a long history of offering an extremely broad range of merchandise in a promotional environment -- makes him uniquely qualified to manage the merchandising and advertising functions of Montgomery Ward," Brennan said.
