The Week: People news - Lund to keep DLKW stake

Mark Lund, the chief executive of Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners, will retain a financial stake in the agency when he departs in June to become the new chief executive of COI.

Lund's interest in DLKW will be managed by a blind trust, a process that allows people moving from the private sector to a government role to retain shares in a company despite the possibilities of a potential conflict of interest. Lund said he would give no preferential treatment to DLKW when it came to making agency appointments.
