No, not that Bush. T. Rowe Price Group's board of directors has elected the Honorable Mary K. Bush as an independent director of the company, effective October 22, the date of the organization's next board meeting.

Bush has served as the president of Bush International, which advises U.S. corporations and foreign governments on international capital markets and strategic business and economic matters, since 1991. Previously, she has served as head of the Federal Home Loan Bank System, head of international finance at Fannie Mae, and the U.S. government's representative on the International Monetary Fund Board. She also recently stepped off the board of directors of the Pioneer Family of Mutual Funds.

"Mary has extensive financial sector expertise and knows our industry well," stated Brian Rogers, chairman of T. Rowe Price Group. "We welcome her perspective and counsel and look forward to benefiting from her wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience."
