    Schultz first joined American-Standard in 1953 as personnel manager of a wholly owned subsidiary.  After a hiatus during which he held industrial relations posts at the Upson Company, Yuba Consolidated Industries, and National Gypsum, he returned in 1966 as corporate labor relations administrator.  He held a variety of personnel and industrial relations positions in the corporation and building products business before returning to corporate headquarters in 1980 as director of industrial relations.  He was elected a corporate vice president in 1988 and assumed his present position in 1989.
    Emmanuel A. Kampouris, president and chief executive officer, expressed his regret at Schultz's decision to retire and thanked him for more than 27 years of outstanding service.  "He has made a valuable contribution to the company, and I wish him all the best in the future," Kampouris said.
    Deshotel joined American-Standard in 1971 as manager of industrial relations at the New Orleans plumbing products plant.  He came to the company from Gulf & South American Steamship Company, where he worked in labor relations.  Deshotel served as manager of personnel services and benefits for the company's plumbing and heating business, technical adviser -- employee benefits at corporate headquarters, and manager of industrial relations at the Louisville, Ky. plumbing products plant before moving to USPP headquarters in 1980 as vice president, industrial relations and personnel.
    Huwendiek has had three separate tours of duty with American- Standard.  From 1963 to 1968 he held various management positions in Germany.  In 1979 he rejoined the company as vice president of manufacturing for automotive products but left in 1980 to spend half a dozen years as a vice president of Krauss-Maffei.  He returned in 1987 as managing director of WABCO -- Germany and continues to head the German automotive company.
    Lamothe came to American-Standard in 1978 from the Hydraulic division of Poclain, where he was manufacturing manager.  He first served as production manager of the automotive products plant in Claye- Souilly, France, and became manufacturing director for the group when Huwendiek left.  Since then he has served successively as deputy general manager, managing director, and vice president and general manager for the French automotive products.
    Nutter joined Clayton-Dewandre Holdings Ltd., now WABCO Automotive U.K., in 1985 as director and general manager of one of WABCO U.K.'s manufacturing units.
