Ex-Im Bank Announces FY2013 Advisory Committee Members

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Board of Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) appointed sixteen members to the Bank's Advisory Committee for 2013. The Committee advises Ex-Im Bank on its policies and programs, in particular on the extent to which the Bank helps U.S. exporters to compete.  Congress established the Advisory Committee thirty years ago.


Returning member Nelson Cunningham, managing partner of McLarty Associates, will again chair the committee.

"I am pleased to announce our 2013 Advisory committee members," said Ex-Im Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg.  "Our members represent various regions of our nation and all are committed to helping Ex-Im Bank achieve its mission of creating and sustaining U.S. jobs through exports. Our Committee is responsible for offering fresh ideas, perspectives and insights, and I look forward to working with each of our new members."

More nominations for the committee were received this year than ever before. This indicates strong bipartisan interest in achieving the National Export Initiative goal of doubling exports between 2010 and 2015. The Bank directors selected members in a process that weighed the nominees' business experience and qualifications, and created balance in perspectives.  The final slate represents a wide sampling of business sectors, including small business, manufacturing, labor, services, finance, and environmental concerns.
