ITEM 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS

On September 2, 2014, Danaher Corporation announced that its leadership transition would be accelerated to September 9, 2014. H. Lawrence Culp, Jr. will retire as President and Chief Executive Officer and as a member of the Board effective September 9, 2014, but will continue his employment with the Company as senior advisor until March 1, 2016.

The Board will appoint Thomas P. Joyce, Jr., age 53, as President and Chief Executive Officer, to the Company's Board and to the Board's Finance and Executive Committees, in each case effective as of September 9, 2014. Since joining Danaher in 1989, Mr. Joyce has served in a series of progressively more responsible general management positions and as a Danaher officer since 2002, including as Vice President-Group Executive of Danaher from 2002 to 2006, as Executive Vice President of Danaher from 2006 to April 2014 and as Executive Vice President-CEO Designate since April 2014. His broad operating and functional experience and in-depth knowledge of Danaher's businesses and of the Danaher Business System are of significant value to the Board given the complex, diverse nature of Danaher's portfolio.

The Company issued a press release on September 2, 2014 announcing Mr. Culp's retirement and Mr. Joyce's appointment. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and incorporated by reference herein.
