German American Chamber of Commerce

Newsletter October 2012 I will keep a suitcase in New York!

My six years at the helm of the German American Chamber of Commerce in New York were exciting, challenging, happy, sometimes sad – but all in all extremely rewarding. I could not have hoped for a better preparation for my next post as Chief Executive of Germany Trade and Invest in Berlin.

Here in the U.S., we have come a long way – within our organization we have created unity where there was divisiveness in the past. Today, we are the German Chamber Network – AHK USA, speaking with one voice. Through constant collaboration between our six offices we have established synergies, which now benefit our 2,500 member firms and clients, with improved services and many business events to choose from.

I would like to thank my team in New York, my colleagues in the other Chambers, our Board of Directors, our Chairman and of course, you – our members for a fantastic six years!

Effective October 8, 2012, the Board of the GACC has appointed Dr. Michael Blank as Acting President & CEO. Dr. Blank has been the Chamber’s Vice President since the fall of 2008.

THANK YOU und Auf Wiedersehen! Dr. Benno Bunse
