One of the most unlikely stories of 2016 was the reunion of Axl Rose and Slash, followed by the subsequent “Not In This Lifetime” Guns N’ Roses tour, which, despite all odds, was very well received by fans across the country.

The board announced in June that EVP/Chief Operations Officer Steve Elkins will succeed Hershey, and the intervening months have involved a steady transfer of leadership responsibilities.Hershey shared his intentions to retire with the board—which belongs to the Center for Credit Union Board Excellence—in October 2015 and formally announced his retirement plans in March 2016. Working with a consultant from C Myers, Phoenix, the board developed a hiring process through which Elkins was identified as the best candidate for the job, without an external search.“At the end of the day, the board structured a rigorous process, and the incumbent earned the position on his own merit and not simply as a recommendation from the outgoing CEO,” Hershey says. “If the board had seen the need for a change in direction, they would have gone outside to find a change agent.

From Barun Jha Hong Kong, Sep 20 (PTI) Asserting that India would give better returns on investments than many other countries, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said foreign investments can provide great additional resources for infrastructure and other sectors. He said that the government is giving special focus on improving the ease of doing business in the country with initiatives like Make In India designed to boost the manufacturing sector that has huge potential. “India will give better returns than many other countries,” Jaitley said here addressing investors and business leaders. He said that foreign investments can give great additional resources and that the countrys infrastructure sector needs huge investments. “Railways, highways and power sectors are among those that require funds and the success of projects in these areas would largely depend on bankability,” Jaitley said. Jaitley is here for two days seeking to attract foreign investors, including large asset managers, to the Indian markets. “Special focus is being given on improving ease of doing business. Investors have felt in the past that the procedures have been difficult in India,” he said. Digital India and Make in India (initiatives) are designed to give special boost to manufacturing and India has huge potential in these areas, he added. According to him, some states were not charging adequate tariff for electricity as a result of which the health of power distribution companies is being affected. “These states can not expect the PSU banks to fund the deficit of discoms,” Jaitley stressed. Many discoms are grappling with acute financial stress. Jaitley said that a key priority of the government was to strengthen the PSU banks. “Some weaker banks could be merged with stronger banks as just diluting stake would not resolve the problem of NPAs (non performing assets),” he added.
