Paul Varga.

Brown-Forman Corporation Chief Executive Officer Paul Varga announced that Michael B. Crutcher, the company's vice chairman, general counsel and secretary, is retiring effective August 31, 2007. Crutcher, who joined Brown-Forman as general counsel and secretary in May of 1989, is responsible for the company's legal and government relations functions, including the expanded regulatory demands created by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the New York Stock Exchange, and he serves as secretary to the company's board of directors and the board's executive and audit committees. He has also been a long-serving member of the company's executive and strategy committees of management. Prior to joining Brown-Forman, Crutcher spent 20 years in private law practice, and he was a senior partner in the Seattle law firm now known as K & L Gates. Brown-Forman will initiate an external search to find a successor to Crutcher and hopes to name that person prior to his retirement at the end of August.
