“Business Roundtable will benefit enormously from Liz Dougherty’s extensive legal experience and knowledge of the federal government,” said Joshua Bolten, President & CEO of Business Roundtable. “She will also be a strong voice for the business community on health care issues, as they continue to be at the center of important policy debates.”
At Jones Day, Dougherty is a member of the law firm’s Labor and Employment practice, where she advises clients on workplace legal and policy issues. From 2006 to 2012, she served as a board member and Chairman of the National Mediation Board, an independent agency that oversees labor relations in the airline and railroad industries.
“Maria Ghazal has been a great asset to Business Roundtable throughout her career here,” Bolten said. “We are delighted that she will be bringing her talents and experience to many new assignments, including the policy work that’s at the heart of what the Roundtable does.”
Ghazal earned a law degree from American University, a master’s degree in public policy from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree from Bates College.
