Dave Hewitson, currently employed at British Aerospace, has been appointed by
Saab AB as Group Senior Vice President and will become a member of the
executive committee. The appointment is a further indication of Saab's

close partnership between the two companies.

Dave Hewitson brings with him broad international business experience and
first hand knowledge of international joint ventures in Aerospace. In 1996 he
was Managing Director of Matra BAe Dynamics UK at the outset of this Anglo
French guided weapons joint venture and more recently was the Programmes

significant part in the integration activity. Prior to this he has held

background, experience and personality will be a major asset both for Saab's
further internationalization and for our work in rationalization and
