 PHYLLIS KAY DRYDEN APPOINTED SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, GENERAL COUNSEL
 AND CORPORATE SECRETARY AT DEL MONTE FOODS
 SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Del Monte Foods has announced the appointment of Phyllis Kay Dryden as senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. Dryden will start her new position in January 1992. She replaces James N. Crittenden, who is retiring.
 In her new position, Dryden will be a member of the company's operating committee, comprised of senior managment. She will be responsible for guiding the company's legal function and will serve as secretary to the board of directors.
 "I'm very excited about joining Del Monte Foods," said Dryden. "It is a prestigious food company with a 100 year old, internationally famous trademark. With the recent LBO, Del Monte Foods is independent and charting its own future."
 Dryden joins Del Monte Foods from the Charles Schwab Corp. in San Francisco, where she has been senior vice president and general counsel since 1984. Her responsibilities have included managing staff attorneys, supervising outside legal services and serving as an advisor to senior management on a range of corporate and regulatory issues.
 Previously, Dryden was vice president and general counsel for Lucasfilm Ltd. in San Rafael, Calif. She was in charge of film distribution contracts, licensing contracts, antitrust regulation, copyright, trademark and design patent registration and enforcement. Dryden worked at the company during the production of the two successful films, "Return of the Jedi" and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."
 "My previous experience has been in the service and entertainment industries," Dryden commented. "I thing this is a particularly good time to join a consumer goods company with a product line central to the U.S. economy and consumers."
 Dryden received a J.D. degree in 1972 from Columbia University Law School, and a B.A. degree in Political Science in 1969 from Barnard College. She has served on the board of the Bar Association of San Francisco and the Legal Aid Society of San Francisco, and as chairman of the Bay Area General Counsel Group. She is currently an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.
 In addition, Dryden has served on the boards of San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association, John F. Kennedy University School of Management, and The Friends of Photography, Ansel Adams Center. She served the United Way of the Bay Area as a campaign cabinet member as well.
 Dryden, 44, grew up near Washington and currently resides in San Francisco.
