Former executive director of the World Bank, Moisés Naím, has joined the AES Corp. board of directors. Naím was elected to the board at the AES 2013 annual shareholder meeting.
"Moisés brings invaluable experience to the political and economic aspects of our operations as we seek to manage risk in a complex global environment," said Charles Rossotti, AES board chairman. "AES will benefit greatly from his depth of experience and strategic insight."
Naím is the senior associate in the International Economics Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and has served in that role from June 2010 to present.
Naím brings international economic and political expertise to AES through his tenure as Venezuela's Minister of Industry and Trade and Director of Venezuela's Central Bank in the early 1990s and as an executive director of the World Bank in the early 1990s.
