TEKTRONIX APPOINTS DAN TERPACK TO HEAD TEST AND MEASUREMENT BUSINESS

 WILSONVILLE, Ore., May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix Inc. (NYSE: TEK) today announced that Daniel Terpack has been appointed vice president and general manager of the Company's Test and Measurement business. Terpack, who joined Tektronix in December, 1992 as vice president of the Telecommunications Independent Business Division, will continue to report to Delbert W. Yocam, Tektronix' President and Chief Operating Officer.
 "Dan Terpack has the skills to lead us through the next level of improvement," noted Yocam. "He has demonstrated keen strategic insight, strong operational management skills and a concern for the well-being of the people at Tektronix."
 Coincident with Terpack's appointment, responsibility for the Tektronix Test and Measurement and Telecom Board Build Operation has been shifted to Debi Coleman, vice president for Materials Operations. "The addition of the Board Build Operation to our materials operation and components groups is a logical step in the evolution of our manufacturing strategy to achieve efficiencies based on common systems and processes," said Yocam. Coleman is also responsible for Tektronix' Materials Operations and Components Operations.
 Rick Hill, formerly vice president and general manager of the Test and Measurement business, has moved into the Tektronix' corporate development organization where he is taking on new responsibilities for strategic assignments. Hill had been appointed head of the Test and Measurement business in September, 1991, following assignments as head of the Oscilloscope Group and the Tektronix Development Corporation.
 Prior to joining Tektronix, Terpack was general manager of Hewlett- Packard's Corvallis, Oregon, division. Terpack received a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Princeton University in 1963 and a Masters of Business Administration degree from the Graduate School of Business of Stanford University in 1965. He is the founding chairman of the Oregon Research & Technology Development Corporation (Oregon's innovative state-funded venture capital operation), a member of the Oregon Business Council, the Oregon State University Foundation and several other associations.
 The Test and Measurement business is Tektronix' largest single line of business. For the first 39 weeks of Tektronix' current fiscal year, Test and Measurement Sales were $499,257,000. Test and Measurement products include digital and analog oscilloscopes, general purpose test instruments, logic analyzers, card-modular test instruments, spectrum analyzers, cable testers, optical fiber testers, cameras, probes and related products. The oscilloscope, originally developed by Tektronix over forty-five years ago, remains the company's primary product sold into this market. Oscilloscopes are used in a variety of applications. Oscilloscopes measure the fluctuation in electrical events, mechanical motion (vibration), sound, pressure, strain and velocity. As a consequence, they are used by electrical, mechanical, sound and other engineers worldwide.
 Tektronix is a leading manufacturer of electronics products and systems with positions of market leadership in test and measurement, computer graphics and television systems.
