Dan Ustian Named President of Navistar's Engine & Foundry Group

CHICAGO, Aug. 2 -- Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV), producer of International® brand trucks, buses and engines, today announced that Dan Ustian has been named president of Navistar's engine and foundry group.

A 26-year veteran at Navistar, Ustian has been serving as group vice president and general manager of the group since November 1993. The title of group president represents a new position.

Ustian's promotion, according to John R. Horne, Navistar chairman, president and chief executive officer "is in recognition of the significant contributions made by Dan and the entire group." Horne cited Ustian's leadership "for delivering beyond the expected."

"Dan Ustian's group has achieved new heights in business performance," Horne said, "continuing to grow the engine business and becoming one of the top manufacturers of medium duty engines in the industry," said Horne.

Last year, Industry Week magazine named the group's Indianapolis plant as one of America's top ten plants and its Melrose Park, Ill. plant has been recognized for its environmental and safety achievements, as well as its operational excellence.

Horne also cited Ustian's "leadership in key product technologies on the horizon, including the upcoming introduction of advanced fuel injection systems for our diesel engines, and advances in emissions technology that support our long-standing leadership and commitment to "Green Diesel Technology(SM)."

After joining Navistar in 1973, Ustian served in a number of manufacturing and financial roles for the company's agricultural and truck groups. He was vice president of manufacturing for the Engine and Foundry Division until 1993, when he was elected group vice president and general manager for the division.

Navistar International Corporation, with world headquarters in Chicago, is a leading North American producer of heavy and medium trucks and school buses, and a worldwide leader in the manufacture of mid-range diesel engines produced in a range of 160 to 300 horsepower for the International brand.
