DURHAM, N.H. -- L. Dennis Kozlowski, chairman and chief executive officer of Tyco International Ltd., will be the featured speaker at the University of New Hampshire's CEO Forum.

The event -- scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 7, at the New England Center on the Durham campus -- is sponsored by the UNH Business Forum Office. The forum is geared toward company presidents, CEOs and other business leaders. The program sponsor is BankBoston.

Kozlowski's comments will begin at 9 a.m., following a buffet breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m.

A 23-year Tyco veteran, Kozlowski has watched the company grow from an operation with $20 million in revenues to a $23 billion multinational company involving manufacturing, distribution and servicing of fire protection and security systems, disposable medical products, flow control and electronic products worldwide.

Since Kozlowski was appointed chairman and CEO six years ago, the market cap of Tyco has increased from $1.5 billion to more than $50 billion today.

With a strong background in operations, Kozlowski's various positions with the company include president of Tyco's Fire Protection, Flow Control and Disposable Products businesses, having more than 15 years as president of the various operating businesses.

In 1987, he was appointed to the Tyco Board of Directors, and was named president and chief operating officer in 1989. He has been CEO since 1992, and became chairman in 1993. Prior to his association with Tyco, Kozlowski held various managerial positions with SCM Corporation in New York City, and Cabot Corporation in Boston.
