Washington – Business Roundtable (BRT) President John Engler announced that Marian E. Hopkins, previously a BRT vice president, has been named senior vice president.
In her new position, Hopkins will be responsible for setting strategy and helping to execute BRT’s overall public policy agenda as a member of BRT's senior leadership team. BRT represents more than 200 chief executive officers of leading U.S.-based corporations.
"Throughout her service to the Roundtable, Marian has demonstrated a keen ability to harness the minds and energy of our member CEOs on some of the most challenging issues including energy security, homeland security, and regulatory reforms," Engler said. "She has also earned tremendous respect for her strategic insights and ability to effectively manage an initiative from concept to completion."
Hopkins began work at Business Roundtable in 1991 and has handled a wide variety of issues during her tenure at BRT. Most recently, she spearheaded the development of BRT’s jobs and growth agenda, “Taking Action for America: A CEO Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth.” She has also been in charge of the association's work on energy, environment and regulatory issues.
"Business Roundtable CEOs offer positive solutions for the challenges facing our economy and our nation," Hopkins said. "I'm very much looking forward to working with them in this new capacity."
