Two New Vice-Chairs For Business Roundtable

The New Zealand Business Roundtable (NZBR) chairman Dr Murray Horn today announced the appointment of Diane Foreman and Bill Day as new vice-chairs of the organisation. They join current vice-chair Rob McLeod, chairman of Ernst & Young.

Diane Foreman is the managing director of private investment firm Emerald Group. Bill Day is founder and managing director of Wellington marine contracting firm Seaworks Limited, and in 2000 was the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Dr Horn said the NZBR was expanding its outreach and communication programmes, and the appointment of Diane Foreman and Bill Day would enable the organisation to increase the range of activities it undertakes in these areas.
