NEUHAUSEN, Switzerland, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyco (NYSE: TYC) today announced in its definitive proxy statement that it has nominated Herman Bulls and Jürgen Tinggren for election to its Board of Directors at the company's Annual General Meeting on March 5, 2014.

Mr. Bulls, 57, is Chairman of Jones Lang LaSalle's Public Institutions specialty practice, which he founded, and also serves as International Director of Global Markets for the company, focusing on client relationships and mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Bulls is Chief Executive Officer of Bulls Advisory Group, a real estate consulting and advisory firm, and co-founded and served as President and CEO of Bulls Capital Partners, a commercial mortgage banking firm. Before Jones Lang LaSalle, Mr. Bulls completed nearly 12 years of active duty service with the United States Army and retired as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves in 2008. He is a member of the Executive Leadership Council, an organization of senior African American business executives from Fortune 500 companies, and former Chairman of the Executive Leadership Foundation. Mr. Bulls is on the board of directors of Comfort Systems, USA, Inc., a provider of heating, ventilation and air conditioning services; Rasmussen Inc., a post-secondary for-profit educational services organization; USAA, a provider of banking, insurance and investment management services to the military community; and Exelis Inc., an aerospace and defense firm. Mr. Bulls received a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and a master of business administration degree in finance from Harvard Business School.

Mr. Tinggren, 55, was the Chief Executive Officer of the Schindler Group, a global provider of elevators, escalators and related services, through December 2013 and has been proposed for election to the board of directors of Schindler in March 2014. He joined the Group Executive Committee of Schindler in April 1997, initially with responsibility for Europe and thereafter for the Asia/Pacific region and for Technology and Strategic Procurement. In 2007, he was appointed Chief Executive Officer and President of the Group Executive Committee of the Schindler Group. Mr. Tinggren also serves on the Board of Schenker Winkler Holding. He also is a Board member of the Swiss American Chamber of Commerce and a Lead Counselor of The Conference Board. Mr. Tinggren holds a master of business administration degree jointly from the Stockholm School of Economics and New York University Business School.

In addition, John A. Krol will retire from the board at the 2014 Annual General Meeting.

"We are indebted to Jack for his tremendous contributions and service to our board and company," said Tyco Chief Executive Officer George Oliver.
