DURHAM, N.H. -- In the wake of Kenneth Lay's resignation as ENRON's CEO and with congressional hearings beginning today, John R. Blease, assistant professor of finance at the University of New Hampshire's Whittemore School of Business and Economics, is available to discuss what these developments mean to the financial market. For example, he suggests that Lay's decision to remain a member of ENRON's Board of Directors may seriously undermine the apparent intent of his resignation as CEO.

Blease can offer background information on where violations occurred at ENRON, and specifically what they might mean to the market. His expertise includes questions related to finance, particularly corporate finance, conflicts among managers/investors/employees, and issues related to investments. He can be reached today at 603-862-3301 and will return all voice messages left.
