 SISSON JOINS THE QUAKER OATS COMPANY
 CHICAGO, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Cindy Sisson has joined the Quaker


Oats Company as a manager of sports marketing for Gatorade(R) Thirst Quencher. In this position, Sisson will be responsible for all Gatorade sports marketing relationships and programs among the professional and collegiate ranks in the northeast United States.
 Prior to joining Gatorade, Sisson was the director of promotions for the Ladies Professional Golf Association. At the LPGA she handled all promotions, licensing activities and special events.

She also served as a liaison to the International Olympic Committee and all the national Olympic committees in preparation for and during the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.
 "We're excited to have Cindy on our staff," said William Schmidt, vice president of sports marketing, Quaker Oats. "She has a great deal of marketing and promotions experience as well as a keen business sense. These attributes, coupled with the professional relationships she's developed, will be an asset to the Gatorade sports marketing group."
 "We regret very much that Cindy will be leaving the LPGA," said LPGA Commissioner Charles S. Meechem, Jr. "She has done an outstanding job while with the association, particularly in her recent coordination of the inaugural Women in Golf - Summit '91, which brought together hundreds of people in the golf industry to discuss women's roles (and impact on the industry) now and in the future. We truly are delighted that she has an opportunity to further enhance her career with The Gatorade Company. We all wish her the very best."
 Sisson received a bachelor of science degree from Pepperdine University in 1982 and a masters of science degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1984. She is a native of Los Angeles and currently resides in Daytona Beach, Fla.
