LOS ANGELES, California (October 16, 2006) -- Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE: DCO) today announced that Anthony Reardon, president of Ducommun’s Ducommun AeroStructures subsidiary, won a prestigious industry leadership award at the annual Learning In Practice Awards competition sponsored by Chief Learning Officer magazine. Reardon won a Gold Award in the Leading Business Change category for organizations with fewer than 10,000 employees.

The Learning In Practice Awards were announced during Chief Learning Officer’s Fall 2006 CLO Symposium in Austin, Texas, which attracted more than 400 top corporate learning executives from around the world to discuss strategies in enterprise education and leadership development.

“Our goal in conferring these awards is to recognize learning leaders who are advancing the industry and clearly demonstrating the link between learning and business performance,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec Publishing Inc., which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine.

“By building a strong learning culture, Anthony Reardon has enabled Ducommun AeroStructures to harness the skills, knowledge, competencies and leadership capabilities of its workforce and gain competitive advantage in the marketplace. We commend him for going the extra distance and for inspiring other learning professionals to champion enterprise education and development.”

Joseph C. Berenato, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Ducommun, stated, “I am very pleased by Tony’s award. He has embraced our Company’s strategic goals of One Company, Operational Excellence, Profitable Growth and Organizational Development and has driven them by developing a learning based culture for personal growth for all of his employees. Ducommun AeroStructures has gone through enormous positive change under Tony Reardon’s leadership and it is a pleasure to see his efforts recognized through this award.”

A panel of industry leaders evaluated more than 200 nominations for the prestigious awards before selecting the 2006 Learning In Practice Award winners. Each award recipient was presented with an etched crystal sculpture created by artist Susan Jacobs Lockhart as part of a limited series titled, “In the Spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright.” The Learning In Practice Award honorees also will be featured in a Special Report supplement to the December issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine.
