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), 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.
