September 24, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Baltimore Sun Co. said yesterday that it has promoted Hilary A. Schneider to vice president of sales and marketing, and Howard G. Weinstein to vice president of employee relations and administration.

Schneider, 36, will continue to head advertising and new business development, but she adds responsibility for circulation and marketing.

Weinstein, 40, was promoted to recognize his increased oversight responsibilities in several initiatives, including renovation of the newspaper's Calvert Street offices, and "Reading by 9," an effort by The Sun to help third-graders in the Baltimore metropolitan area learn to read and improve their reading skills.

Weinstein will continue to head human resources and labor relations.

"They are well-deserving promotions," said Mary Junck, publisher of The Sun, who this month was promoted to president of Times Mirror Co.'s eastern newspapers. "They both are very, very talented executives."

Junck said the promotions had been in the works for some time, and she discussed them with Michael E. Waller, publisher of the Hartford Courant in Connecticut, who will replace her as The Sun's publisher Oct. 1.

Schneider, who has been vice president of sales since 1995, joined The Sun in 1992 as director of development. She was promoted to vice president of new business development in 1994. Schneider was director of development at Times Mirror, The Sun's Los Angeles-based parent company, from 1990 to 1992.

Weinstein has been vice president of employee and labor relations since 1995. Before that, he was vice president of labor relations. He joined the company as director of labor relations in 1991.

Weinstein was a labor lawyer with the Baltimore law firm of Venable, Baetjer & Howard before coming to The Sun.
