 WORLD COLOR PRESS CREATES NEW TOP TECHNOLOGY POSITION
 AT NEW YORK HEADQUARTERS
 NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The appointment of John P. Moran, 42, to the newly created position of vice president, Technology and Development, for World Color Press, Inc., was announced today by Robert G. Burton, chairman, president and chief executive officer of the company.
 Moran will report directly to Burton.
 In making the appointment, Burton said:
 "We are in an industry that turns on technology and more and more must focus on maximizing cost-effective state-of-the-art production techniques. This becomes especially important with our printing base of consumer magazines, catalogs and directories that now face the current economic downturn."
 He continued:
 "To stay 'ahead of the curve,' we must be on the cutting edge of every new procedure and method, and at the same time, be ever conscious of the environment and the enormous effect our industry has on it. We are committed to these goals and being the leader in our industry.
 "With Mr. Moran, we have a senior executive who has spent more than 12 years on the front line of our manufacturing and development, and who has a clear understanding of the delicate balances between what is best for our society, our environment, and our future. It is this type of awareness and conscious effort that will keep World Color Press well ahead of the competition in the '90s," Burton added.
 Moran joined World Color Press in 1980, as its chief engineer, assigned to design and build the company's state-of-the-art facility in Merced, Calif. Following completion of the plant, he was named vice president and plant manager, a post he held until 1989, when he was named vice president, Manufacturing, with overall planning responsibility for all seven of the company's printing plants (Effingham, Sparta, Salem (Ill.), Merced (Calif.), Stillwater (Okla.), Dyersburg and Covington (Tenn.)).
 Prior to joining World Color Press and from 1977 to 1980, Moran held engineering positions in the Business Forms Division of The Burroughs Corporation (Unisys).
 He is a graduate of Cornell University, with a degree in mechanical engineering. He will relocate with his wife and children from Effingham, Ill., to the company's executive headquarters in New York City.
 World Color Press, founded in 1903, today prints, among other noted publications, Brides, Cosmopolitan, Forbes, Golf Digest, Good Housekeeping, Gourmet, House and Garden, Hot Rod, Institutional Investor, Life, McCall's, Motor Trend, Organic Gardening, People, Road and Track, Sports Afield, Sports Illustrated, Teen, Time, TV Guide, U.S. News and World Report, Vogue, and Woman's Day.
 In addition, the company is a major printer of directories, inserts and catalogs, and is involved in a wide variety of other commercial printing activities.
