Keywords: Tags  Cambelle-Inland, Craig Bouchard, Quincy Jones, Clifford Perlman, Yue-Sai Kan, Raj Maheshwari, Jo Isenberg-O'Loughlin


NEW YORK — Cambelle-Inland LLC has named three "icons in their respective industries" to its board of directors.

The New York-based company was established earlier this year to house the China investment activities of chief executive officer Craig T. Bouchard—also co-founder of Esmark Inc., founder of Shale-Inland LLC and since June of this year chairman and chief executive officer of Signature Group Holdings—and his partners.

Joining the board are Quincy Jones, a 27-time Grammy award-winner and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, who served as an advisor on the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Olympic Games in China; Clifford S. Perlman, former chief executive officer of the Caesar’s Palace casino in Las Vegas and founder of fast food franchise Lum’s; and Yue-Sai Kan, a Chinese-American Emmy award-winning television host and producer, author and entrepreneur who has been called "the most famous woman in China" by People magazine.

"Collectively, the visibility (the three) bring to our new venture is immeasurable," Bouchard said in a statement.

In an accompanying announcement, Raj Maheshwari, a long-time, colleague, advisor, confidant and "wingman" for Bouchard, was named president and chief operating officer of the company. "Raj will play an instrumental role in supervising the daily operations of Cambelle-Inland and guiding its strategic direction," Bouchard said.

Cambelle-Inland was formed "to take on the world’s largest industrial pollution problem: the pollution in the inner cities of China," Bouchard said.

The company is currently in discussions with a number of parties interested in offering an electric vehicle both to farmers in China and to people in the inner cities, he told AMM.
