NORCROSS, GA, May 22, 2002 - Leica Geosystems today announced a regional reorganization of its North American operations in a move to improve service to customers and dealers.

"With this new organization, we will be better able to coordinate relations with both our distribution networks and customers," said Matthew Smith, president of Leica Geosystems, Americas Region. "The new structure will provide each region with a Leica Geosystems vice president who will have responsibility for sales of surveying and construction equipment in that region." All vice presidents will report to Smith.

New vice presidents and their territories are: Steve Crowfoot, Northeast; Robby Dudley, Southeast; John Clark, South Central; Ken Jagman, North Central; Jim Reed, Northwest; Jeff Surry, Southwest; and Peter Hettstedt, Canada. Pierre Desjardins will remain senior vice president for Latin America.

The new regional organizational structure dovetails with the company's other moves to enhance customer service. Earlier this year, Leica Geosystems announced the Leica Advantage program, which offers better access to technical support and service.

Leica Geosystems, with worldwide headquarters in Heerbrugg, Switzerland, develops, manufactures and markets systems for surveying, mapping and position determination. The company, with 2,750 employees, has a turnover of over 600 million Swiss francs and is listed on the Swiss Exchange. It is structured in six divisions: Surveying and Engineering, GIS and Mapping, Industrial Measurement, Special Products, Consumer Products and New Businesses (Cyrax). Along with the Swiss facilities, the company also has development and production subsidiaries in America and Asia and is represented by 20 sales units and more than 100 representatives worldwide.
