WITNESSETH

        WHEREAS, the Executive has assumed duties of a responsible nature to the benefit of the Company and to the satisfaction of its Board of Directors (the "Board"); and

        WHEREAS, the Board believes it is imperative to diminish the inevitable distraction of the Executive by virtue of the personal uncertainties and risks created by a Change of Control and to encourage the Executive's full attention and dedication to the Company currently and in the event of a Change of Control, and to provide the Executive with compensation and benefits arrangements upon a Change of Control and under certain other circumstances set forth herein which ensure that the compensation and benefits expectations of the Executive will be satisfied and which are competitive with those of other corporations; and
        WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive have entered into an Employment Agreement dated as of January 25, 1999 (the "Prior Agreement"); and

1

        WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive desire to supersede the Prior Agreement;

Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, if a Change of Control occurs during the Term and if the Executive's employment with the Company is terminated or the Executive ceases to be an officer of the Company prior to the date on which the Change of Control occurs, and if it is reasonably demonstrated by the Executive that such termination of employment or cessation of status as an officer (i) was at the request of a third party who has taken steps reasonably calculated to effect the Change of Control or (ii) otherwise arose in connection with or anticipation of the Change of Control, then for all purposes of this Agreement the "Change of Control Date" shall mean the date immediately prior to the date of such termination of employment or cessation of status as an officer.
        (c)     The "Term" shall mean the period commencing on the Effective Date and ending on the earlier to occur of (i) the third anniversary of the Effective Date or (ii) the first day of the month next following the Executive's 65th birthday ("Normal Retirement Date"); provided, however, that commencing on the date one year after the Effective Date, and on each annual anniversary of such date (such date and each annual

2

anniversary thereof shall be hereinafter referred to as the "Renewal Date"), the Term shall be automatically extended so as to terminate on the earlier of (x) three years from such Renewal Date or (y) the Executive's Normal Retirement Date, unless at least 30 days prior to the Renewal Date the Company shall give notice to the Executive that the Term shall not be so extended.
        (d)     The "Change of Control Period" shall mean the period commencing on the Change of Control Date and ending on the earlier to occur of (a) the third anniversary of such date, or (b) the Executive's Normal Retirement Date.

("Group") (the "Outstanding Group Common Stock") or (ii) the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities of Group entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (the "Outstanding Group Voting Securities"); provided, however, that the following acquisitions shall not constitute a Change of Control: (v) any acquisition directly from Group, (w) any acquisition by Group or any of its subsidiaries, (x) any acquisition by any employee benefit plan (or related trust) sponsored or maintained by

        (ii)    Annual Bonus. In addition to Base Salary, the Executive shall be awarded, for each fiscal year during the Change of Control Period, an annual bonus as shall be determined by the Board or its Human Resources Committee in accordance with the Incentive Compensation Plan of Group approved by the Group Board of Directors ("Incentive Plan") or otherwise.

        (b)     Death or Disability. This Agreement shall terminate automatically upon the Executive's death. If the Company determines in good faith that the Disability of the Executive has occurred (pursuant to the definition of "Disability" set forth below), it may give to the Executive written notice of its intention to terminate the Executive's employment. In such event, the Executive's employment with the Company shall terminate effective on the 90th day after receipt by the Executive of such notice given at any time after a period of six (6) consecutive months of Disability and while such Disability is continuing (the "Disability Effective Date"), provided that, within the 90 days after such receipt, the Executive shall not have returned to full-time performance of the Executive's duties. For purposes of this Agreement, "Disability" means disability which, at least six (6) months after its commencement, is determined to be total and permanent by a physician selected by the Company or its insurers and acceptable to the Executive or the Executive's legal representative (such agreement as to acceptability not to be withheld unreasonably).

        (d)     Good Reason. The Executive's employment hereunder may be terminated by the Executive for Good Reason. For purposes of this Agreement, "Good Reason" means
                (i) with respect to the termination of the Executive's employment other than during the Change of Control Period:
                          (1) any reduction by the Company in the Executive's rate of base salary, as in effect on the Effective Date or as the same may be increased from time to time;
                          (2) any demotion of the Executive to a position lower than Senior Vice President; or
                          (3) any failure by the Company to comply with and satisfy Section 11(c) of this Agreement, and
                (ii) with respect to the termination of the Executive's employment during the Change of Control Period,
                          (1) the assignment to the Executive of any duties inconsistent in any respect with Executive's position (including status, offices, titles and reporting relationships), authority, duties or responsibilities as contemplated by Section 4(a)(i) or (ii) of this Agreement, or any other action by the Company which results in a diminution in such position, authority, duties or responsibilities, excluding for this purpose an isolated, insubstantial and inadvertent action not taken in bad faith and which is remedied by the Company promptly after receipt of notice thereof given by the Executive;

10

                          (2) (x) any failure by the Company to comply with any of the provisions of  Section 4(b) of this Agreement, other than an isolated, insubstantial and inadvertent failure not occurring in bad faith and which is remedied by the Company promptly after receipt of notice thereof given by the Executive or (y) any failure by the Company to maintain or provide the plans, programs, policies and practices, and benefits described in Sections 4(b)(iii) - (vi) on the most favorable basis such plans programs, policies and practices were maintained and benefits provided during the 90-day period immediately preceding the Change of Control Date, or if more favorable to the Executive and/or the Executive's family, as in effect at any time thereafter with respect to other Key Employees;
                          (3) the Company's requiring the Executive to be based at any office or location other than that described in Sections 4(a)(i)(B) hereof, except for travel reasonably required in the performance of the Executive's responsibilities;
                          (4) any purported termination by the Company of the Executive's employment otherwise than as expressly permitted by this Agreement; or
                          (5) any failure by the Company to comply with and satisfy Section 11(c) of this Agreement.
        For purposes of this Section 5(d)(ii), any good faith determination of "Good Reason" made by the Executive on or after the Change of Control Date shall be conclusive.
        (e)     Notice of Termination. Any termination during the Change of Control Period by the Company for Cause or by the Executive for Good Reason shall be communicated by Notice of Termination to the other party hereto given in accordance with Section 12(b) of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, a "Notice of Termination" means a written notice which (i) indicates the specific termination provision in this Agreement relied upon, (ii) sets forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances claimed to provide a basis for termination of the Executive's employment under the provision so indicated and (iii) if the Date of Termination (as defined below) is other than the date of receipt of such notice, specifies the termination date (which date

11

shall be not more than fifteen (15) days after the giving of such notice). The failure by the Executive to set forth in the Notice of Termination any fact or circumstance which contributes to a showing of Good Reason shall not waive any right of the Executive hereunder or preclude the Executive from asserting such fact or circumstance in enforcing his rights hereunder. Any termination other than during the Change of Control Period by the Company for Cause or by the Executive for Good Reason shall be communicated by written notice (which written notice shall not constitute a Notice of Termination hereunder) to the other party hereto given in accordance with Section 12(b) of this Agreement.
        (f)     Date of Termination. "Date of Termination" means the date of receipt of the Notice of Termination or any later date specified therein, as the case may be; provided, however, that (i) if the Executive's employment is terminated by the Company other than for Cause or Disability, the Date of Termination shall be the date on which the Company notifies the Executive of such termination and (ii) if the Executive's employment is terminated by reason of death or Disability, the Date of Termination shall be the date of death of the Executive or the Disability Effective Date, as the case may be.
        (g)     Dispute Concerning Termination. If within fifteen (15) days after any Notice of Termination is given, or, if later, prior to the Date of Termination (as determined without regard to this Section 5(g)), the party receiving such Notice of Termination notifies the other party that a dispute exists concerning the termination, the Date of Termination shall be extended until the earlier of (i) the date on which the Change of Control Period ends or (ii) the date on which the dispute is finally resolved, either by mutual written agreement of the parties or by a final judgment, order or decree

12

of an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction (which is not appealable or with respect to which the time for appeal therefrom has expired and no appeal has been perfected); provided, however, that the Date of Termination shall be extended by a notice of dispute given by the Executive only if such notice is given in good faith and the Executive pursues the resolution of such dispute with reasonable diligence; and provided further, this Section 5(g) shall be applicable only for terminations of employment occurring during the Change of Control Period.
        (h)     Compensation During Dispute. If a purported termination occurs during the Change of Control Period and the Date of Termination is extended in accordance with Section 5(g) hereof, the Company shall continue to pay the Executive the full compensation in effect when the notice giving rise to the dispute was given (including, but not limited to, salary) and continue the Executive as a participant in all compensation, benefit and insurance plans in which the Executive was participating when the notice giving rise to the dispute was given, until the Date of Termination, as determined in accordance with Section 5(g) hereof. Amounts paid under this Section 5(h) are in addition to all other amounts due under this Agreement and shall not be offset against or reduce any other amounts due under this Agreement.

13

(if applicable) by the Executive as of the Date of Termination, including, for this purpose (1) the Executive's full Base Salary through the Date of Termination at the rate in effect on the Date of Termination, disregarding any reduction in Base Salary in violation of this Agreement (the "Highest Base Salary"), (2) the product of the Annual Bonus paid to the Executive for the last full fiscal year and a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the current fiscal year through the Date of Termination, and the denominator of which is 365 and (3) any compensation previously deferred by the Executive (together with any accrued interest thereon) and not yet paid by the Company and any accrued vacation pay not yet paid by the Company (such amounts specified in clauses (1) through (3)) are hereinafter referred to as "Accrued Obligations" and such amounts specified in clauses (1) and (3) are hereinafter referred to as "Termination Obligations"). Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the Executive's family shall be entitled to receive benefits in accordance with the most favorable plans, programs, practices and policies of the Company and its subsidiaries in effect during the 90-day period immediately preceding the Change of Control Date, or if more favorable to the Executive and/or the Executive's family, as in effect at any time thereafter with respect to other Key Employees.

        (a)     Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event it shall be determined that any payment or distribution by the Company to or

21

for the benefit of the Executive (whether paid or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise, but determined without regard to any additional payments required under this Section 9) (a "Payment"), would be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 (or any successor provision thereto) of the Code or any interest or penalties with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax, together with any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Excise Tax"), then the Executive shall be entitled to receive an additional payment (a "Gross-Up Payment") in an amount such that after payment by the Executive of all taxes (including any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such taxes), including, without limitation, any income and employment taxes (and any interest and penalties imposed with respect thereto) and Excise Tax, imposed upon the Gross-Up Payment, the Executive retains an amount of the Gross-Up Payment equal to the Excise Tax imposed upon Payments.
        (b)     Subject to the provisions of Section 9(c), all determinations required to be made under this Section 9, including whether a Gross-Up Payment is required and the amount of such Gross-Up Payment, shall be made by a firm of independent public accountants selected by Group prior to the Change of Control (the "Accounting Firm") which shall provide detailed supporting calculations both to the Company and the Executive within fifteen (15) business days of the receipt of notice from the Executive that there has been a Payment, or such earlier time as is requested by the Company or the Executive. In the event that the Accounting Firm is serving as accountant or auditor for the individual, entity or group effecting the Change of Control, the Executive may appoint another nationally recognized accounting firm to make the determinations

22

required hereunder (which accounting firm shall then be referred to as the Accounting Firm hereunder). All fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be borne solely by the Company. Any Gross-Up Payment, as determined pursuant to this Section 9, shall be paid to the Executive within five (5) days of the receipt of the Accounting Firm's determination. If the Accounting Firm determines that no Excise Tax is payable by the Executive, it shall furnish the Executive with a written opinion that failure to report the Excise Tax on the Executive's applicable federal income tax return would not result in the imposition of a negligence or other penalty. Any determination by the Accounting Firm shall be binding upon the Company and the Executive. As a result of the uncertainty in the application of Section 4999 of the Code (or any successor provision thereto) at the time of the initial determination by the Accounting Firm hereunder, it is possible that Gross-up Payments which will not have been made by the Company should have been made ("Underpayment"), consistent with the calculations required to be made hereunder. In the event that the Company exhausts its remedies pursuant to Section 9(c) and the Executive thereafter is required to make a payment of any Excise Tax, the Accounting Firm shall determine the amount of the Underpayment that has occurred and any such Underpayment (together with interest and penalties incurred by the Executive in connection therewith) shall be promptly paid by the Company to or for the benefit of the Executive.
        (c)     The Executive shall notify the Company in writing of any claim by the Internal Revenue Service that, if successful, would require the payment by the Company of the Gross-Up Payment. Such notification shall be given as soon as practicable but no later than ten (10) business days after the Executive knows of such claim and shall

23

apprise the Company of the nature of such claim and the date on which such claim is requested to be paid. The Executive shall not pay such claim prior to the expiration of the thirty-day period following the date on which he gives such notice to the Company (or such shorter period ending on the date that any payment of taxes with respect to such claim is due). If the Company notifies the Executive in writing prior to the expiration of such period that it desires to contest such claim, the Executive shall:
        (i)     give the Company any information reasonably requested by the Company relating to such claim,
        (ii)    take such action in connection with contesting such claim as the Company shall reasonably request in writing from time to time, including, without limitation, accepting legal representation with respect to such claim by an attorney reasonably selected by the Company,
        (iii)   cooperate with the Company in good faith in order effectively to contest such claim,
        (iv)    permit the Company to participate in any proceedings relating to such claim; provided, however, that the Company shall bear and pay directly all costs and expenses (including additional interest and penalties) incurred in connection with such contest and shall indemnify and hold the Executive harmless, on an after-tax basis, for any Excise Tax or income tax, including interest and penalties with respect thereto, imposed as a result of such representation and payment of costs and expenses. Without limitation on the foregoing provisions of this Section 9(c), the Company shall control all proceedings taken in connection with such contest and, at its sole option, may pursue or forgo any and all administrative appeals, proceedings, hearings and conferences with the taxing authority in respect of such claim and may, at its sole option, either direct the Executive to pay the tax claimed and sue for a refund or contest the claim in any permissible manner, and the Executive agrees to prosecute such contest to a determination before any administrative tribunal, in a court of initial jurisdiction and in one or more appellate courts, as the Company shall determine; provided, however, that if the Company directs the Executive to pay such claim and sue for a refund, the Company shall advance the amount of such payment to the Executive, on an interest-free basis and shall indemnify and hold the Executive harmless, on an after-tax basis, from any Excise Tax or income tax, including interest or penalties with respect thereto, imposed with respect to such advance or with respect to any imputed income with respect to such advance; and further provided

24

that any extension of the statute of limitations relating to payment of taxes for the taxable year of the Executive with respect to which such contested amount is claimed to be due is limited solely to such contested amount. Furthermore, the Company's control of the contest shall be limited to issues with respect to which a Gross-Up Payment would be payable hereunder; whereas the Executive shall be entitled to settle or contest, as the case may be, any other issue raised by the Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authority.
        (d)     If, after the receipt by the Executive of an amount advanced by the Company pursuant to Section 9(c), the Executive becomes entitled to receive any refund with respect to such claim, the Executive shall (subject to the Company's complying with the requirements of Section 9(c)) promptly pay to the Company the amount of such refund (together with any interest paid or credited thereon after taxes applicable thereto). If, after the receipt by the Executive of an amount advanced by the Company pursuant to Section 9(c), a determination is made that the Executive shall not be entitled to any refund with respect to such claim and the Company does not notify the Executive in writing of its intent to contest such denial of refund prior to the expiration of thirty (30) days after such determination, then such advance shall be forgiven and shall not be required to be repaid and the amount of such advance shall offset, to the extent thereof, the amount of Gross-Up Payment required to be paid.
        10.     Confidential Information. The Executive shall hold in a fiduciary capacity for the benefit of the Company all confidential and proprietary information, relating to Group, the Company or any of their subsidiaries, and their respective businesses, which shall have been obtained by the Executive's employment by the Company or any of its subsidiaries and which shall not be or become public knowledge (other than by acts by Executive or his representatives in violation of this Agreement). After termination of the Executive's employment with the Company, the Executive shall

25

not, without the prior written consent of the Company, communicate or divulge any such information to anyone other than the Company and those designated by it. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Executive or his representatives may disclose any such information if such information is compelled by legal process, provided that if Executive is so compelled, he shall provide the Company with prompt notice so that it may seek a protective order or other remedy. In any event, Executive shall furnish only that portion of the confidential information that is legally required to be disclosed. In the event the Executive breaches any provision of this Section 10, any payments or other benefits promised under this Agreement shall be forfeited. Such a forfeiture shall not limit the Company from seeking any other contractual or equitable remedies available to it which are appropriate under the circumstances. The Executive expressly consents to the award of injunctive relief in the event a violation of this Section 10 is alleged by the Company.
        11.     Successors.
        (a)     This Agreement is personal to the Executive and without the prior written consent of the Company shall not be assignable by the Executive otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Executive's legal representatives.
        (b)     This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the Company and its successors and assigns.
        (c)     The Company shall require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company to assume expressly and agree to perform this Agreement

26

in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform it if no such succession had taken place. As used in this Agreement, "Company" shall mean the Company as hereinbefore defined and any successor to its business and/or assets as aforesaid which assumes and agrees to perform this Agreement by operation of law, or otherwise.
