Mr. Bott previously worked in investment banking for more than 35 years at Morgan Stanley and First Boston/Credit Suisse First Boston (now Credit Suisse), including serving for almost five years as Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley. He provided financial structuring and strategic advice to numerous large American and international corporations, with a focus on industrial and transportation companies.

Mr. Bott holds a B.A. from Princeton University in Economics and an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School.

Mr. Ledford is a Managing Director and head of the Industrial & Transportation team of The Carlyle Group (“Carlyle”). He joined Carlyle in 1988 and, prior to his appointment as Managing Director, held the positions of Vice President and Principal, responsible for leading Carlyle’s investments in numerous companies. From 1991 to 1997, he was Chairman and CEO of The Reilly Corp., a former Carlyle portfolio company. In addition, he was Director of Capital Leasing for MCI Telecommunications.

Mr. Ledford is a member of the Board of Directors of Allison Transmission, Greater China Industrial, HD Supply and Veyance Technologies.
