Former Miami mayor Manny Diaz has been elected to the board of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the Florida chapter announced today.
NACD Florida chairman Gerry Czarnecki cited Diaz's "wealth of governance experience and subject-matter expertise" as factors in his election.
"We look forward to the future contributions of this outstanding leader to NACD as we introduce new programs and continue to support and be the 'voice' of the director," Carolyn Chin, president of NACD Florida, added in a statement.
Diaz, a senior partner at the Lydecker Diaz corporate and real estate law firm, was mayor of Miami from 2001-2009, and recently served as a Resident Fellow at Harvard's Institute of Politics. He is a native of Havana, Cuba.
He earned his juris doctor degree from the University of Miami School of Law in 1980.
The NACD focuses on advancing board leadership, and has 12,000 corporate director members.
