Richard L. Slater has been elected chairman of the West Virginia Roundtable, an independent, nonprofit and non-partisan business organization dedicated to creating a viable business climate throughout the state.

Slater is managing partner of Dixon Hughes Goodman and a member of the firm's Executive Committee. He has been a member of the Roundtable since 2007, serving with educational, business and community leaders from throughout the state.

"Our group of CEOs and private-sector entrepreneurs truly understand what it takes to build equity in our state while creating good-paying jobs," Slater said in a news release. "As we move forward, I am excited about the opportunities before us to continue to improve the economic vitality of our state and our citizens."

The West Virginia Roundtable was developed in 1984.
