In regard to this appointment, Mr. Burton said:
"As we continue to drive cost and waste from our organization, it is clear that to fully achieve success with our cost containment goals we need to leverage our purchasing power and develop strategic partnerships with suppliers.

Specifically, Paul will be responsible for managing and maximizing our relationships with third party vendors. By more aggressively and effectively managing external vendors, our ultimate goal is to have the full weight and total resources of the company at our disposal.
"In the immediate future, Paul will benchmark our current capabilities and quickly make decisions about our future purchasing direction. Through his finance, acquisition and cost containment experience, he will ensure the proper management of procurement activities company-wide."
Mr. Dilworth stated:
"I see tremendous opportunities at Moore to leverage the company's size and relationships with its current suppliers in order to generate costs savings. I look forward to joining the management team at Moore and to rolling up my sleeves and getting actively involved, on a day-to-day basis, in reshaping the company's procurement and logistics activities."
