The Baltimore Sun Co. announced three promotions yesterday in its Sun Park and organization development operations.

Bruce McEntee, who has served as director of operations, Sun Park, was promoted to vice president of operations, Sun Park.

Scott Moores, who had been director of organization development, was named vice president, organization development.

Sharon Fitzpatrick, director of human resources, will succeed Moores as director of organization development.

The promotions are effective immediately, said Michael E. Waller, The Sun's publisher and chief executive.

In his new position, McEntee, 51, will oversee the pressroom, packaging, facilities, custodial, production support and warehouse functions. He will report to Bruce Barwick, vice president and business manager.

"I'm thrilled to be working with such a fine team of employees at Sun Park," McEntee said. "I will continue working with them to produce outstanding newspapers and delivering break-through customer satisfaction to our readers and advertisers."

Since January 1997, McEntee has served as director of operations at Sun Park. Since graduating from the University of Baltimore School of Business in 1969, McEntee has held a number of circulation department management positions.

He began his career at The Sun in 1963 as a high school student selling subscriptions door-to-door. His father, Stewart, worked for the newspaper's transportation department, retiring in the late 1970s after 30 years, McEntee said.

In his new post as vice president of organization development, Moores, 50, will lead the newspaper's strategic planning for dozens of employee growth and development programs. Moores will report to Waller.

"I'm excited because this represents an investment and commitment by The Sun to our people," Moores said. "This is another step in the right direction."

Moores has been with The Sun since 1971, when he joined the circulation department. He served as director of organization development since February 1996.

As the director of organization development, Fitzpatrick will report to Moores. Her new duties will include overseeing diversity training programs and creating employee recognition programs.

Fitzpatrick, 37, joined The Sun in November 1996 as director of human resources. Previously, she worked five years heading human resources departments at Knight Ridder Inc. newspapers Fort Wayne, Ind., and State College, Pa.

"I'm excited about the charge Scott and I have been given by the organization," Fitzpatrick said. "I feel we will be agents of change for continued improvements at The Baltimore Sun."
