MELBOURNE, Australia (April 30)—Ansell Ltd. has appointed Harry Boon to its board of directors. Boon, who recently was named CEO of the Red Bank, N.J.-based latex and synthetic medical glove maker, assumes his new responsibilities immediately. The new board member has been with the company for 26 years, the last 11 as marketing director of subsidiary Ansell Healthcare Inc. Boon played a big role in putting together a major three-year restructuring plan that the firm will implement during the next three years. Under the plan, the company's name was changed to Ansell Ltd. from Pacific Dunlop Ltd. and it will become a global health care product business rather than a conglomerate.
