Zurich, Switzerland, October 16, 2006 - ABB announced today that it had appointed Diane de Saint Victor to the Executive Committee as general counsel, secretary to the Board and head of Group Function Legal and Compliance with effect from January 1, 2007.

De Saint Victor joins ABB from EADS (European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company) where she is general counsel, leading the headquarter legal team at its Paris and Munich headquarters and the community in the divisions and countries where EADS is active. She replaces John Scriven, who left ABB at the end of July 2006.

Diane de Saint Victor brings extensive corporate experience to ABB, having worked in key legal positions for Thales, General Electric, Honeywell International, SCA and EADS. During her career she has effectively integrated the legal factor into corporate strategy, including the protection of intellectual property, and has driven compliance programs. She has widespread experience in international policy areas and governmental relations.
