June 15 (Bloomberg) -- Anthony Salz, the Rothschild Vice Chairman, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, together with Sequoia Capital Chairman Michael Moritz and John Lewis Partnership Plc Chairman Charlie Mayfield.

Salz, 62, who led a review of Barclays Plc’s business practices that published recommendations in April, was named today on a list of awards to mark the Queen’s birthday. Moritz is a venture-capital investor who was an early backer of Google Inc. and LinkedIn Corp., while Mayfield has been chairman of John Lewis, the U.K. department-store chain owner, since 2007.

People working in industry and the economy accounted for 10 percent of the total honors list, according to a breakdown published by the Cabinet Office in London. The awards are bestowed in the name of the queen and are recommended by an independent panel, which considers suggestions from government departments and political parties as well as from the public.

BAE Systems Plc’s outgoing Chairman Dick Olver and former Trades Union Congress General Secretary Brendan Barber also won knighthoods. Drax Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Dorothy Thompson, National Savings & Investments Chief Executive Officer Jane Platt and Invesco Perpetual fund manager Neil Woodford became Commanders of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE.

Adele, who won an Oscar for her song for the James Bond movie “Skyfall,” became a Member of the Order of the British Empire, or MBE. Tony Robinson, who played Baldrick in BBC Television’s “Blackadder,” received a knighthood and his co-star Rowan Atkinson, also known for his character Mr. Bean, became a CBE.
