 CAMDEN, N.J., May 28 /PRNewswire -- Campbell Soup Company


(NYSE: CPB) announced today the election of Jon M. Huntsman, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of the Huntsman group of companies, to Campbell's board of directors.
 Huntsman's election brings the size of Campbell's board to 16.
 The Huntsman group of companies includes Huntsman Chemical Corporation, the largest privately held chemical company in the U.S., with sales well in excess of a billion dollars. From his executive offices in Salt Lake City, Huntsman oversees the group's 3,000 employees and operations in 31 locations around the world.
 Huntsman is a native of Blackfoot, Idaho. He graduated from The Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 1959 and earned an MBA from the University of Southern California in 1970. He is a former naval gunner officer and served under President Nixon as Special Assistant to the President and White House Staff Secretary early in the 1970s.
 Huntsman is also a director of Thiokol Corporation and Bankers Trust of New York. He serves as a member of the board of trustees for the University of Pennsylvania and an overseer for the Wharton School. He formerly served as vice chairman of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the Utah Symphony Orchestra.
 A well-known philanthropist, Huntsman founded the Huntsman Center for Environmental Research at Utah State University and the Huntsman Center for Global Competition and Leadership at the University of Pennsylvania, and has made many significant contributions to organizations which act as advocates for the homeless, the ill and the underprivileged. His dedicated efforts in helping rebuild Armenia after the 1988 earthquake earned him that country's highest award, the Medal of Honor, which was presented to him by the Republic's Prime Minister.
 Huntsman, a very active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (Mormon), also has received awards from the National Conference of Christians and Jews and the Catholic Church for his efforts in assisting those who suffer.
 Huntsman, 55, and his wife, Karen, have nine children and 17 grandchildren.
