In announcing the board's action, Mr. Alexander said, "When we formed the office of the chairman a year ago, it was with a view to this day and to the days ahead. As I step back from direct daily responsibility for the company, my time and attention are freed to focus on key strategic issues and on developing the new opportunities that will power Sequa's future growth."

Martin Weinstein, 68, joined Sequa Corporation in 1987, following the acquisition of Chromalloy American Corporation, where he had headed gas turbine operations.
