 SILICON GRAPHICS EXPANDS BOB BISHOP'S ROLE
 IN WORLDWIDE TRADE OPERATIONS
 Responsibilities to Include U.S. and International
 Sales and Marketing
 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Graphics Inc. (NYSE: SGI) today announced that it has expanded the role of Robert Bishop, president of Silicon Graphics' World Trade, to include international and U.S. sales, marketing, service and distribution. In his expanded role, Bishop will report directly to Silicon Graphics' president and CEO Edward R. McCracken. In addition, Hugh Stevenson has joined Silicon Graphics in the newly created position of vice president of European operations.
 Bishop, 49, who joined Silicon Graphics in 1986 to build the company's international division, has grown the international business from $15 million in revenues in fiscal year 1987 to $269 million in fiscal year 1991 -- a compound annual growth rate of 105 percent. In addition to managing operations in Europe, Latin America and the North and South Pacific, Bishop will now oversee North American sales, service and marketing.
 "Bob has achieved an outstanding record in the three and a half years he has been with Silicon Graphics, growing non-U.S. sales to approximately half of the company's revenues," said McCracken. "His demonstrated success in building the international organization as well as his leadership experience in sales and marketing both in the United States and abroad uniquely qualify him for his new role at Silicon Graphics."
 Bishop has more than 23 years of international and national sales and marketing experience. Prior to joining Silicon Graphics, he spent four years at Apollo Computer, where he established 18 subsidiaries and 40 sales offices for the company around the world. He also spent 15 years with Digital Equipment Corp. in Australia, Japan, Germany, Switzerland and the United States. Bishop has an M.S. degree in Computer Science from New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
 To address the growing European market, Bishop has named Stevenson as vice president of Europe. Stevenson, 43, joins Silicon Graphics following an 18 year career with IBM Europe, where he was director of AIX Systems overseeing AIX and RS/6000 business throughout Europe. Stevenson will be responsible for all marketing, sales and service for Silicon Graphics' European operations.
