The Australian partnership that bought 24.4% of Barris Industries this month installed Frank P. Lowy as chairman of the Los Angeles producer of movies and television game shows. Lowy is executive chairman of Westfield Capital, one of the Australian partners.
In another personnel change for Barris that was announced Monday, Lowy's son, Peter Lowy, was elected to the board. So were former U.S. Sen. John Tunney, now a real estate developer, and Lawrence C. Horowitz, an investment banker who once was chief of staff for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.).
