joined the Post as corporate
vice president for planning,
later moving to controller
and then vice president for
marketing for the Washing-
ton Post newspaper. Next
was the job of chief financial
officer for the newspaper.
Before his last promotion
to chief operating officer for
the Post corporation, Mr.
Spoon served as vice presi-
dent of the corporation and
president of Newsweek.
Mr. Spoon now reports
directly to Donald Graham,
the company's president and
CEO, who in May succeeded
his mother, Katharine
Graham, 73, who held that
position since 1973.
"His mind is just in an-
other league than most
people's," said Mrs.
Graham, who remains the
company's chairman of the
board of directors. "He is
both analytic and observant,
a very quick study and a
driven worker. Besides that,
he is a warm and
charismatic personality."
His secretary, Wendy
Bannahan, said Mr. Spoon
was "born to win."
"On a typical weekend
day, he can get in a piano
lesson, a tennis game and
probably fit in a game of
golf," she said. (He _said he
doesn't have much spare
time these days for recrea-
tion.)
"Mentally, he is in-
timidating," Ms. Brannahan
said. "But on top of it all, he
is just a nice guy. The
downside is that he is so
busy that many people don't
get a chance to see that."
The Spoons live in
Potomac, Md., with their
three children, and both
are active in the Jewish
community. Alan Spoon is a
board member of Har
Shalom, a Conservative
synagogue. Terri Spoon
serves on the board of the
Hebrew school.
"It's part of our lives," Mr.
Spoon said. "My personal
values are much influenced
by my Jewish upbringing."
His rapid success hasn't
surprised his parents, Harry
and Mildred Spoon of
Southfield. The former
Southfield High School class
president always excelled in
classes, graduating as
salutatorian.
He passed so many ad-
vanced placement courses in
high school that he entered
MIT as a sophomore. He also
was athletic. He loves to
play tennis and sail. At MIT,
he played pick-up hockey and
was captain of the university
sailing team.
"He has always had that
sense of challenge and

fight," Millie Spoon said.
"He's been like that since he
was a little boy.
"Nothing that Alan ever
did surprised me," she said.
"He always did things well.
To me, he is still young little
Alan, still sweet and
unassuming and very much
a family man."
In fact, the Spoon family
will make its way to Mich-
igan from Potomac, Md., in
August to celebrate Mildred
and Harry Spoon's 50th
wedding anniversary. ❑
Alan Spoon isn't phased by
his position as the highest
ranking business executive
for the Post. He works hard,
and he works many hours.
"I don't pay a lot of atten-
tion to my physical position
and how I got there," he
said. "I am analytical, fast,
always fair and part of the
team."
