Former governor to lead association of industry leaders.

GOV 23664-1 R

Former Michigan Gov. John Engler has been chosen to lead the Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of top U.S. companies.

Engler, a Republican, served three terms as Michigan governor, from 1991 to 2003. He has led the National Manufacturers Association (NAM) since 2004.

Engler says his new role at the Business Roundtable will allow him to "advocate for American innovation and job growth" while working with the nation's top business leaders.

Engler succeeds John J. Castellani, who became president and chief executive of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America in September.

    Ye gads! I thought Engler rode off into the sunset, never to be seen again. I woild like to ask mary anne if she really believes this "round table" is just an organization that sits around and sips tea and shoots the breeze? Or, (like most organizations) plan and sceme (and of course make huge contributions to politicians) to get favors and special treatment? My vote goes for the latter. Does anyone else agree? Thank you. Ricardo

    The Business Roundtable is a private association representing business and industry, NOT a government group, you idiots. The former governor's new position has NOTHING to do with the operation of the State of Michigan, Rick Snyder, or our economy. Climb out from underneath your rocks.

    He made big problems in Mich when he served.That's when many jobs started to leave,when many programs to the poor were cut or done away with.Looks like the rich are really going to get rich,and the poor,will get poorer if that's possible.Shows how the statement goes,no fool like an old fool.Hello tent cities,that's all many will have left.
