 WPP GROUP BOARD ANNOUNCES CHANGES; BRIAN J. BROOKS APPOINTED
 DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES JOHN SYMONDS RETIRES
 NEW YORK, Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- WPP Group plc (NASDAQ: WPPGY) today announced the appointment to the board of Brian J. Brooks as director of Human Resources and senior vice president.
 Brooks, who will be based in New York, joins WPP in September from Towers Perrin where he has been a partner specializing in human resources, career development and compensation matters.
 For every one of WPP's operating companies, people are both the greatest resource and the greatest investment. Devising and managing reward systems and career development schemes increasingly require specialist skills. It will be Brian Brooks' objective to make these skills available to company managements throughout the group so that their business goals can be more efficiently and competitively realized.
 Brooks, 37, began his career in law practice in Wisconsin. In 1983, he joined Towers Perrin in New York as a compensation consultant. Three years later he became principal and head of the firm's International Compensation Practice in North America. In 1989, he took on responsibility for developing multinational clients in the U.K. He has also been responsible for developing the firm's advertising industry practice and in this capacity he has worked with the board of directors and senior management of a number of the world's leading advertising organizations.
 John Symonds' Retirement
 John Symonds, 62, who has been a director of the company for more than ten years, will retire from the board in the near future. He was chairman of the company from 1982 to 1989. The board would like to take this opportunity to recognize his valuable contribution and sound counsel to the group over the years.
