 CHULA VISTA, Calif., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Rohr Inc. (NYSE: RHR)


announced the appointment of Ellen B. Richstone as senior vice president and chief financial officer, effective April 6, 1992. She succeeds David J. Ruggles, who passed away on Dec. 25, 1991. Reporting directly to Robert H. Goldsmith, chairman and chief executive officer, Richstone will oversee all finance as well as additional resource and administrative functions.

 Prior to Data General, she had managerial and financial positions in the controller's organization at Polaroid Corp. and management positions in the international division of Chemical Bank in New York.
 In announcing the appointment Goldsmith said, "We completed a nationwide search, including many talented executives from outside the company as well as considering our internal management succession candidates. Ms. Richstone's experience, managerial ability and record of accomplishments will be focused upon helping Rohr improve its balance sheet, better manage its assets and improve its overall performance in providing attractive returns to its shareholders."
 Richstone's academic credentials included graduate degrees from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., in international affairs and a master's of law and diplomacy, with a specialty in international business law, and an advanced professional certificate in finance from the New York University Graduate School of Business Administration. She attended Cornell University's Executive Development Program and holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Scripps College in Claremont, Calif.
