William Daley Elected to EDS Board
DALLAS (AP) _ Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce William Daley has been elected to the board of directors of Electronic Data Systems, company officials announced Tuesday.
Daley most recently was chairman of the Gore-Lieberman presidential campaign. He replaces Dick Cheney, who left the board in August during his run for vice president with now President Bush.
Daley served as commerce secretary under President Clinton from 1997 to 2000. During that time he visited more than 40 countries. He also led the administration’s efforts to create government policies that promoted the growth of electronic business while safeguarding the privacy of consumers.
Before his cabinet post, Daley served as Special Counsel to President Clinton on the North American Free Trade Agreement while a partner with Mayer, Brown & Platt and president and chief operating officer of Amalgamated Bank of Chicago.
EDS, based in Plano, Texas, is one of the world’s largest computer-systems consultants.
