Blackstone Group LP Chief Executive Officer Stephen A. Schwarzman will chair a panel of prominent U.S. business leaders who will advise President-elect Donald Trump on economic matters, the company said on Friday.
The President’s Strategic and Policy Forum will begin meeting with Trump in February after his inauguration. Other members include General Motors Co. chairman and CEO Mary Barra, Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co., BlackRock Inc.’s Larry Fink, Bob Iger of the Walt Disney Co., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. president and CEO Doug McMillon, and former Boeing Co. chairman James McNerney.
“This forum brings together CEOs and business leaders who know what it takes to create jobs and drive economic growth,” Trump said in a statement issued by Blackstone. “My administration is committed to drawing on private sector expertise and cutting the government red tape that is holding back our businesses from hiring, innovating, and expanding right here in America.”
Other panel members include former General Electric chairman and CEO Jack Welch, Adebayo Ogunlesi, chairman and managing partner of Global Infrastructure Partners and Ginni Rometty, chairman, president and CEO of International Business Machines Corp.
