NAMPA, Idaho -- MPC Corporation (AMEX:MPZ) today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Curtis M. Akey as its new Chief Financial Officer, replacing Michael R. Whyte, who resigned to pursue other business opportunities.

Akey joined MPC in January 2007 as Vice President for Corporate Development and Treasurer. He has played a major role in directing the company's cash management as well as building a strategic plan for MPC's future development.

Prior to joining MPC, Akey worked for fifteen years in finance and accounting roles, including five years with Merrill Lynch & Co. and five years with Bathgate Capital Partners LLC. He has extensive experience in both corporate finance and mergers & acquisitions. Akey has been associated with MPC in an advisory capacity since July 2005.

"We are extremely pleased to elevate Curtis Akey to the role of Chief Financial Officer," said John P. Yeros, Chief Executive Officer of MPC Corporation. "Curtis has added tremendous value since coming on board in January, and was instrumental to the company's success before that in his advisory role. Curtis has an excellent understanding of MPC's business and will be an even bigger asset to the company in his new role. In addition, I would like to thank Mike Whyte for his contributions to the company as CFO over the past six months. Mike played an important role in strengthening our financial reporting and accounting systems."
