Lawrence A. Bossidy's profile Was Chairman of the Board of Honeywell International Inc.

Mr. Lawrence A. Bossidy had served as Chairman and CEO of AlliedSignal from 1991 to 1999, when he became Chairman of Honeywell following the historic merger of AlliedSignal and Honeywell in December, 1999. He retired from the company in April 2000.

He returned on July 3, 2001, as Chairman and CEO of Honeywell International Inc., following General Electric's prolonged and unsuccessful attempt to acquire Honeywell. Mr. Lawrence A. Bossidy's second term is focused on stabilizing the company by reinvigorating its core management processes and improving its operations and cost structures through the execution of comprehensive Six Sigma- and Digitization-based productivity initiatives. These efforts are expected to generate at least $1.3 billion in cost productivity savings in 2002 and result in the company having the best cost structure position in its history, which will serve as an effective springboard for Honeywells future growth.

Mr. Lawrence A. Bossidy is also credited with transforming AlliedSignal in the 1990s into one of the world's most admired companies, whose success was largely driven by an intense focus on growth and Six Sigma-driven productivity. During his tenure with AlliedSignal the company achieved consistent growth in earnings and cash flow, highlighted by 31 consecutive quarters of earnings-per-share growth of 13% or more.

Before joining AlliedSignal, Mr. Lawrence A. Bossidy served in a number of executive and financial positions with General Electric Company, which he joined as a trainee in 1957. He was Chief Operating Officer of General Electric Credit Corporation (now GE Capital Corporation) from 1979 to 1981, Executive Vice President and President of GE's Services and Materials Sector from 1981 to 1984, and Vice Chairman and Executive Officer of General Electric Company from 1984 to July 1991.

He is co-author of new book scheduled for release in June, 2002, entitled "Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done."

Mr. Lawrence A. Bossidy was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and is a graduate of Colgate University. He and his wife Nancy have nine children and (25) grandchildren.
