Sen. Gregg Turns Down Biz Group Presidency

Friday, 10 Dec 2010 08:43 PM

If retiring Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., has a bucket list, being the next president and CEO of the Business Roundtable apparently isn’t on it. He’s not seeking the position, for which he was a top candidate, Roll Call reports.

“Although I have the highest regard for the Business Roundtable and believe that it is a positive and constructive voice for good governance in Washington, I do not plan to join this organization,” the moderate Republican says in a statement.

The Roundtable is friendly with the White House and represents CEOs of major companies, including Bank of America Corp., Boeing Co., Caterpillar Inc. and Dow Chemical Co. Another candidate for the job is outgoing Citibank lobbyist Nick Calio, who recently departed the bank to head the Air Transport Association of America.
