Lisa Elkin, who joined Compuware in 1991, the same year she graduated from Michigan State University, has been hired to replace Chappell.

Elkin has risen to the top of the company's communications department quickly, having held a series of positions with increasing responsibility prior to her most recent appointment.

Chappell, who had held the PR position for exactly a year, will stay on as a member of the board of directors, a seat she has held since 1997.

According to Elkin, Chappell felt she could better serve the company in her current role. She is a 15-year veteran of AT&T and set up her own consulting firm in 1995.

Compuware, with dollars 2.2 billion sales in 2000 and 15,000 employees worldwide, is listed on the NASDAQ exchange. Chairman and CEO Peter Karmanos is a charismatic civic leader who is constructing a new company headquarters in downtown Detroit, a reversal of the usual corporate flight to the suburbs.
