College Park, Md. – October 12, 2009 — The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business will launch a new Center for Financial Policy on Nov. 2 with a Roundtable on Executive Compensation event in Washington, D.C. Kenneth Feinberg, Special Master for Compensation of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, will keynote the event, which will explore executive compensation practices and policy reforms.
