Commenting on the appointment, Gail Fosler, President of The Conference Board, said: “We are extremely fortunate to have an executive with Rainer's wealth of global business experience taking on this key role. He brings to the position a vast amount of knowledge about critical issues that concern and interest our members. Rainer has already made a significant contribution to The Conference Board, including helping to define our membership model across our major regions of operation and playing a pivotal role in obtaining full operating legal status for The Conference Board in India.”
