Former Governor elected to Dow Chemical Board of Directors
In a written statement, Dow CEO Andrew Liverus says Granholm will help the company as it pursues growth.
“Jennifer Granholm’s experience and perspective will be instrumental as we continue to advocate for national and international policies that drive innovation, increase productivity, encourage investments in technology and create jobs."
This has been a pretty busy week for the former governor. The Pew Charitable Trust announced this week that Granholm will serve as a Senior Advisor to the Trust's Clean Energy Program. She was also recently appointed to a public policy position at the University of California-Berkeley.
Granholm served 8 years as Michigan governor. Her second term ended in January.
