Seven Seas Water Corp., a Tampa, Florida-based water company that operates in the Caribbean and Latin America, named Brian O’Neill, a senior adviser at Lazard Ltd. (LAZ:US), to its board of directors.
O’Neill was former deputy assistant secretary, Western Hemisphere, for the U.S. Treasury Department and chairman of investment banking for Latin America and Canada at JPMorgan Chase & Co., Seven Seas said.
“The combination of Brian’s financial expertise and intimate knowledge of Latin America provides a strong complement to our board,” Chairman Doug Brown said today in a statement.
“Potable water represents one of the most urgent needs of this century, and Seven Seas is particularly well-positioned to capitalize on that opportunity,” O’Neill said in the statement.
