Paul C. Korman Joins Navistar Board

CHICAGO, April 18 -- Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV), producer of International® brand trucks, school buses and engines, today announced that Paul C. Korman, a regional director of the United Auto Workers, has joined the board of directors effective April 18, 2000.

Korman, 64, replaces the late Jack Laskowski, an international vice president of the United Auto Workers, who died last August. A 1993 agreement involving the company's restructured post-retirement health care and life insurance benefits required an additional seat on the board to be filled by the UAW.

"We are pleased that Paul Korman is joining our board as he brings various experiences to our company as we continue to improve our overall competitive position," said John R. Horne, Navistar chairman, president and chief executive officer.

Korman's appointment is somewhat of a homecoming. He began his career in 1955 as a millwright at the old International Harvester tractor works in Chicago. Korman was elected to various posts in his local union and was appointed to the staff of the International Union in 1968. In that position, he carried out servicing responsibilities involving UAW members at International Harvester, Caterpillar and J. I. Case plants. He was elected director of UAW Region 4 in 1995.

Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) is the parent company of International Truck and Engine Corporation, a leading producer of medium trucks, school buses, heavy trucks, severe service vehicles, mid-range diesel engines and parts and service sold under the International® brand. The company also is a private label designer and manufacturer of diesel engine for the pickup truck, van and SUV markets. With world headquarters in Chicago, Navistar had 1999 sales and revenues of $8.6 billion. Additional information can be found on the company's web site at www.nav-international.com .
