 TOM PETILLO TO LEAD QUALTEC QUALITY SERVICES
 JUNO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualtec Quality Services,


Inc. (QQS), a North Palm Beach training and consulting subsidiary of FPL Group, Inc.(NYSE: FPL) announced today the appointment of J.T. "Tom" Petillo as president. Petillo joins QQS from Florida Power & Light Company where he has been a senior vice president.
 J.C. "Joe" Collier, former president of QQS, is resigning for health reasons in order that the company continue to move forward under the full-time direction he is unable to devote at this time. Collier hand-picked his successor, with the concurrence of James L. Broadhead, chairman and chief executive officer of FPL Group, Inc.
 "Tom's management experience, coupled with his in-depth knowledge of total quality management gained during the Deming challenge, make him unquestionably the best person for this transition and to direct the future of QQS," said Broadhead.
 Petillo figured prominently in the development of FPL's Quality Improvement Program and served as chairman of QQS during its early years. During FPL's successful challenge for the Deming Prize for Overseas Companies, he was called back to oversee a major portion of the utility's customer service operations. Three major units audited by the Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers during the Deming examination were in Petillo's area of responsibility.
 QQS was established as an FPL Group subsidiary in 1986 to provide training and consulting in total quality management and related systems. The company currently provides services to more than 100 organizations in 18 countries worldwide.
 FPL Group is a holding company whose principal subsidiary is Florida Power & Light, one of the largest electric utilities in the nation. FPL Group's common stock is listed on the New York, Tokyo and London stock exchanges.
