RISMEDIA, April 2, 2009-Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. corporations, announced the creation of a Housing Working Group devoted to exploring viable solutions to the challenges facing the housing market and providing actionable recommendations to the administration and Congress to return stability to the U.S. housing market and help lead to broader economic recovery.

“Since housing-related industries account for more than 20 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product, the recovery of the residential housing market is vital to the recovery of the U.S. financial markets and the overall economy,” said Richard A. Smith, President and CEO of Realogy Corporation and Chair of Business Roundtable’s Housing Working Group. “Stimulating the housing market from a demand-side perspective is key to putting America back on the path to economic growth. Business and government must work together to find immediate and long-lasting solutions that address the challenges facing the U.S. economy.”

Working with Smith on the Housing Group to promote policies that will reinvigorate the housing market and jumpstart the economy will be: Thomas C. Nelson, Chairman, President and CEO of National Gypsum Company; Stephen Odland, Chairman and CEO of Office Depot; Daniel Fulton, CEO of Weyerhaeuser Company; and Jeff Fettig, Chairman and CEO of Whirlpool Corporation.
