American Century Names Investment Chief

June 17, 2003 -- American Century Companies Inc. has appointed Harold Bradley to oversee investments in some of its domestic stock funds. The company also made him a co-manager of three funds, and added managers to two others.

Bradley was named chief investment officer for American Century's growth-oriented small, mid-cap and sector funds, a newly created position in which he is responsible for teams that manage about $3.5 billion in assets.

In addition, Bradley was appointed co-manager of American Century New Opportunity/Inv (TWNOX), American Century New Opportunity II/Inv (ANOIX), and American Century Technology/Inv (ATCIX). He replaces Chris Boyd, who left American Century to manage his family's investment and real estate businesses, the fund company said.

Bradley has held several positions with American Century since joining the company 15 years ago, including portfolio manager, and head of equity trading. Bradley reports to James Stowers III, the company's co-chairman and chief investment officer for domestic large-cap growth funds.

The company also named Keith Lee co-manager of American Century Select/Inv (TWCIX). Lee, who was promoted from analyst, joins John Sykora on the fund, replacing Tim Reynolds, who was added to the team that manages American Century Growth/Inv (TWCGX).

John Seitzer continues as co-manager of the New Opportunities and New Opportunities II funds. Tom Telford and Jeff Schuller remain co-managers of the Technology fund.

All the appointments became effective Monday.
