MIDLOTHIAN, Texas--Feb. 23, 2005--Ennis, Inc. (formerly Ennis Business Forms, Inc.), a manufacturer of printed business products and apparel headquartered in Midlothian, Texas, announced today that Michael Magill has been appointed Executive Vice President and will continue as Treasurer. In conjunction with this promotion, Mr. Magill will assume operating responsibility for the Company's three printing groups; e.g. the Forms Solutions Group, Promotional Solutions Group, and Financial Solutions Group. Mr. Magill will continue reporting to Keith Walters, Chairman, President and CEO of Ennis. Mr. Magill was previously the head of the Financial Solutions Group. Continuing to report to Mr. Walters will be Ron Graham, Vice President of Administration, and Harve Cathey, Vice President of Finance, CFO and Secretary.
Mr. Walters will also have reporting to him Todd Scarborough as President of the Apparel Group, the group formed from the operating entities acquired in the Alstyle Apparel merger in November 2004. Mr. Scarborough, 37, has been the Vice President of Marketing for Alstyle for the past three years and resides in Chicago where Alstyle has a large distribution center. Mr. Scarborough has spent 20 years in the apparel business, starting at an early age in a family-owned apparel business, and prior to joining Alstyle has been in various senior positions in the apparel industry. Mr. Scarborough, along with the rest of the existing Alstyle management team, will continue to execute the business strategies in place prior to the acquisition. Mr. Scarborough will relocate to Anaheim, Calif., where Alstyle is headquartered.
Roger Brown, previously President and CEO of Alstyle since November 2003, will remain as a consultant to Alstyle and to Ennis. Mr. Brown decided to move from his role as President of the Apparel division to a position as a consultant due to the speed at which the integration was being accomplished.
Keith Walters, Chairman, President and CEO of Ennis said, "As Ennis becomes a larger company through acquisitions, the management team is being reorganized to best deal with the greater complexities and issues. Ennis remains committed to managing its overhead in a prudent manner adding and promoting people who can balance the multiple tasks required in today's business climate. Mr. Magill has proven his ability to handle a number of areas and we are pleased to announce this promotion."
Mr. Walters went on to say, "Today's announcement is also recognition of Mr. Scarborough's ability and dedication to Alstyle to provide the leadership for this business segment of Ennis. We also want to thank Roger Brown for his leadership and guidance during this transition period. Roger provided strategic direction and focus for Alstyle during his tenure and we look forward to working with Roger in a consulting capacity in the future."
