James T. Brady, former secretary of the state's Department of Business and Economic Development, has joined the board of directors at spice giant McCormick & Co. Inc. of Sparks.
Brady, who resigned from his job as secretary in April, sits on numerous boards and serves as a consultant to the Johns Hopkins University.
"I think McCormick is a first-rate company and I enjoy being involved in strategic policy-making," Brady said. "McCormick is aggressively pursuing strategic alliances all around the world and hopefully I can be helpful in some of that strategizing."
Retiring from the board in the spring of 1999 are Charles P. "Buzz" McCormick, the chairman and chief executive; James S. Cook; and George V. McGowan.
"James Brady has good business and governmental experience which will assist us as we look to grow the company, and he has a wonderful background from his 33 years at Arthur Anderson LLP," said Robert J. Lawless, McCormick's president and chief executive.
Also joining the board of directors is Edward S. Dunn Jr., the former president of supermarket chain Harris Teeter Inc.
