McPhaul, a long time newspaper executive, previously held the title of Corporate Vice President, Sales and Marketing. This new position will be the senior revenue officer for CNHI.

"In order for CNHI to continue our solid financial performance, we must place a significant focus on growing the top line," said Barrett. "CNHI is fortunate to have Steve to fill this critical position."

McPhaul, 48, worked in both advertising and circulation departments before his promotion to publisher in 1991. Since that time, he has published three daily newspapers, and served as a regional Chief Operating Officer for both Thomson Newspapers and Media General.

"I'm honored that Donna selected me for this important post," said McPhaul. "Growing our business is not only paramount for CNHI, but the entire industry. I look forward to working in this new capacity with our outstanding employees, and our valued customers."
