NEWSWEEK — President-elect Donald Trump has named Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk as part of a business advisory team for his forthcoming administration.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi will also form part of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum. They will “meet with the president frequently” and offer their expertise to Trump as part of his Strategic and Policy Forum, Trump officials said.
“America has the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world, and the pioneering CEOs joining this forum today are at the top of their fields,” Trump said in a statement.
“My administration is going to work together with the private sector to improve the business climate and make it attractive for firms to create new jobs across the United States from Silicon Valley to the heartland.”
