[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] [ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Hello, Does anyone have any more information about these two fellows? Bremer named Michael P. Fleischer Director of Private Sector Development for the Coalition Provisional Authority on March 13. As Director, Mr. Fleischer will lead a team focused on developing Iraq’s private sector economy and attracting private foreign investment – thereby continuing with the plan of privatization.Before his tenure at CPA, Mr. Fleischer took a leave of absence from Bogen Communications International, Inc., where he has been President and a member of the Board of Directors since 1997. Before becoming President of Bogen Communications International, Mr. Fleischer was President of Ekco/Glaco, Ltd., served as a member of the Board of Directors of Alliant Techsystems, Inc. and President of Active Management Group, Inc., a firm he co-founded in 1990, which turns around troubled companies, and provides leadership for firms facing other difficult transitions. Mr. Fleischer received an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1985 and a B.A. from Colgate University in 1978 (Source: CPA press release). His previous experience in Iraq: zero. Bremer also recently appointed Robert C. Gross as a senior adviser to the Iraqi Ministry of Labor and Social Services. Gross would, in Bremer’s words, help “to implement modern labor laws, increase employment and help provide social services to Iraqis.” Once again – are ‘modern laws’ defined by the CPA’s standard of forcing open the Iraqi economy?
