Press release from the issuing company

MENASHA, Wis., June 14 -- Banta Corporation Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Stephanie A. Streeter today was named to the United States Olympic Committee Board of Directors. Her appointment to the newly streamlined 11-member USOC Board was announced this afternoon during a news conference held at the Colorado Springs (CO) Olympic Training Center. Streeter, 46, is one of four independent directors selected by a four-person Nominating and Governance Committee chaired by Indiana Supreme Court Justice Theodore R. Boehm. The committee reviewed approximately 200 nominations for the four independent Director positions. The three others selected were Peter Ueberroth, former President of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee and former Baseball Commissioner, who today was also named Chairman of the new Board; Alliant Energy CEO Erroll Davis; and Dr. Harold Shapiro, President Emeritus and Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University. Streeter says she is greatly honored by the appointment and looks forward to the challenges of helping shape a modern governance structure for the USOC. "I hope to combine my passion for sport with my knowledge of corporate governance, experience working in teams and understanding of complex organizations to help the USOC ensure the Olympics reaches its potential as an effective, ethical and inspirational role model for all Americans," said Streeter. Today's naming of the USOC Board represents the final step in what has been called the most sweeping governance transition in the history of the United States Olympic Committee. The new 11-member board replaces the previous 124-member board. Streeter joined Banta Corporation, a $1.4 billion printing and supply-chain management company based in Menasha, WI, as President and Chief Operating Officer in 2001. She was promoted to CEO in 2002 and became Chairman in April 2004. Prior to joining Banta, Streeter was Chief Operating Officer of idealab!, Pasadena, and before that Group Vice President for Worldwide Office Products for Avery Dennison, Pasadena. Her sports background includes being a four-year starter on the Stanford University women's basketball team, where she served as team captain her junior and senior years. She was also co-founder and coach of the Palisades (CA) Basketball Club, and served on the Board of Directors for Kids in Sports, a youth sports advocacy organization based in Pasadena, CA.
