 GLENVIEW, Ill., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Albin F. Moschner has been elected president and chief operating officer of Zenith Electronics Corp. (NYSE: ZE), the company announced today.
 Moschner, previously senior vice president, operations, will continue to report to Jerry K. Pearlman, chairman and chief executive officer.
 "Al Moschner's promotion reflects the continuing emphasis on cost- reduction and operating improvements that he has begun in his first two years with the company," Pearlman said.
 "Al's horizons will also be expanded to include our cable equipment business, which we regard as an important focus in our future."
 The existing Office of the president has been renamed the office of the chairman. Its members continue to be Pearlman, Moschner and Gerald M. McCarthy, president of the Zenith Sales Company division. McCarthy was promoted to corporate executive vice president, sales and marketing.
 At its meeting today, Zenith's board of directors also renamed its Finance Committee as the Executive Committee. Members of the committee continue to be T. Kimball Brooker, chair, Peter S. Willmott and Andrew McNally IV.
 "Zenith is fortunate to have very strong outside directors. The committee restructuring provides a vehicle for additional contributions by our outside directors to the rebuilding of our company," Pearlman said.
 Moschner, 40, joined Zenith as senior vice president, operations, in Oct. 1991, and has been a member of Zenith's board of directors since April 1992. He began his career as an engineer at IBM in 1974.
