Table: Building Team Jeff

Some of the key players in GE's post-Welch regime

THE THREE WISE MEN

DENNIS D. DAMMERMAN, 55, chairman, GE Capital. Hired Immelt out of college. Now runs GE's roaring finance arm.

GARY L. ROGERS, 56, vice-chairman of GE. Immelt's boss at Appliances & Plastics. Tough and obsessed with costs. Neutron Gary?

BOB WRIGHT, 58, chairman and CEO, NBC. Helping Immelt understand the broadcast business, GE's glamorous cash cow.

JEFF'S PALS

DAVID L. CALHOUN, 44, president and CEO, GE Aircraft Engines. Once considered a rival to replace Welch; known as a sharp global thinker.

JOHN G. RICE, 44, president and CEO, GE Power Systems. Worked with Immelt at GE Plastics and now heads a red-hot unit.

JOSEPH M. HOGAN, 44, president and CEO, GE Medical Systems. "Looks like a kid," says one insider. Seen as innovative and strategic.

FACES TO WATCH

SCOTT C. DONNELLY, 39, senior vice-president, Corporate Research & Development. Med Systems colleague and critical player, given Immelt's increasing attention to R&D.

YOSHIAKI FUJIMORI, 50, president and CEO, GE Plastics. First foreign national to run a GE unit and a sign Immelt wants diversity at the top.

GARY M. REINER, 47, chief information officer. His star is rising with GE's growing focus on technology.
