John A. Elliott was named to the board of directors of Neuberger Berman Inc., New York. He is vice president and dean of Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business, New York, and also holds its Irwin and Arlene Ettinger Chair in Accountancy.
At the same time, Heidi Steiger and Peter Sudman, both executive vice presidents at the firm, resigned from the board. The two stepped down so Neuberger Berman could have a majority of unaffiliated directors, said Jeffrey B. Lane, president and chief executive officer. The board now has six independent directors and 11 total members.
