Date:1/22/2008

EAGAN, Minn., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Jim Porter, executive vice president of human resources for Carlson, has been elected to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (Blue Cross) board of trustees. Blue Cross operates under the guidance of the board which oversees the organization's work as a nonprofit health service plan corporation.

Porter joined Carlson in April 2003 as senior vice president of human resources and was promoted to his current position in April 2005.

Prior to working for Carlson, he was the senior vice president and chief administrative officer of Honeywell International. In his 21-year career at Honeywell, Porter rose from the role of human resources recruiter in the company's defense division to senior vice president and chief administrative officer, one of six senior officers who reported to the chairman and chief executive officer of the $25 billion corporation.

"Jim's extensive experience in human resources, information technology, e- business, communications, and community relations makes him a very valuable addition to our board of trustees," said Mark W. Banks, M.D., CEO of Blue Cross. "In particular, his knowledge of health care from a human resources perspective will add a positive dynamic to our board."

Prior to joining Honeywell, Porter served in a variety of positions with The Trane Company in LaCrosse Wisconsin, Hoechst-Roussel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in Somerville, New Jersey, and ELBA Corporation in Denver, Colorado.

Porter is a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University and a longtime resident of the Minnesota community.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, with headquarters in the St. Paul suburb of Eagan, was chartered in 1933 as Minnesota's first health plan and continues to carry out its charter mission today: to promote a wider, more economical and timely availability of health services for the people of Minnesota. A nonprofit, taxable organization, Blue Cross is the largest health plan based in Minnesota, covering 2.9 million members in Minnesota and nationally through its health plans or plans administered by its affiliated companies.
