HOUSTON--Aug. 17, 2001--Consolidated Graphics, Inc. announced today that Darrell Whitley was named President of CGXmedia, the business group responsible for developing and marketing the Company's e-commerce products and services. Mr. Whitley recently served as President of The Tennyson Group, which merged with another technology services company.

"The success achieved by CGXmedia over the last 12 months has surpassed our expectations,'' commented Charles F. White, President and Chief Operating Officer. "As a result, it is necessary for CGXmedia to be structured as a separate business group within our family of companies, and we hired Darrell in this newly created position to lead its growth. Our CGXmedia electronic solutions continue to earn growing acceptance by our customers and drive additional commercial printing sales. Two of our solutions are especially attractive to large national corporations - COIN, a secure on-line print ordering and fulfillment service, and OPAL, a comprehensive digital asset management service. As a result, CGXmedia will be a key driver in the success of our national accounts strategy.''
"We are very pleased to have Darrell join our management team,'' said Joe R. Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
