Earlier today, President Barack Obama appointed General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt as chairman of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
The council’s goal is to serve as a catalyst for ideas and action to improve U.S. economic vitality.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer praised Immelt’s appointment as chairman to the council:
“Jeff Immelt and I started our careers together at Proctor & Gamble, and I have enormous respect for the success he’s had at GE. He is an ideal business leader to chair the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness and help drive a focus on what we can all do to increase American competitiveness and create new jobs.”
