Dear Ms. Kurz,
I spoke to Mr. Skilling regarding your e-mail below. Of course he is always
willing to entertain opportunities for NED's; however, given the current
demands on his time, it would have to be something pretty significant in
order that he would pursue and/or accept such an appointment.
With regard to the specific company you have in mind, he is happy to review
any written information you may have. Once he has had a chance to review it,
we will contact you to let you know his level of interest and to set up
follow-on discussions if appropriate. By mail or Federal Express, the
information may be sent to:
Jeffrey K. Skilling
President & COO
1400 Smith Street, EB5007
Houston, TX 77002
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you again

Subject: Board Appointments
I am a Partner with Whitehead Mann and rang you today to introduce myself and
my firm. We are an executive search consultancy who act for large global
organizations to find Non-Executive Directors(NED)for their Boards. At any
one time, we have a number of European clients who are keen to have American
nationals join their Boards due to their growing interests in the US.
I am approaching you to see if you would ever entertain taking on a NED
position. I have a specific client in mind which is a Paris-based, global
industrial company with worldwide revenues in excess of $15 billion.
I know that you have just returned from holiday and have a busy schedule over
the next few weeks, but I would be grateful if you could let me know if you
would be interested in talking further about Board appointments. I can be
reached at 212 551 3552 or via e-mail at your convenience.
I look forward to hearing from you.
