New York, N.Y., May 13, 2014 – Eva Hampl, an attorney and former Senate staffer, has joined the United States Council for International Business (USCIB) as director of investment, trade and financial services. She will be based in the organization’s Washington, D.C. office.
“We’re happy to welcome Eva to our trade and investment team,” said USCIB President and CEO Peter M. Robinson. “She brings valuable knowledge and experience in treaties and regulations affecting cross-border commerce. This will help us bolster USCIB’s leadership position in investment, trade and financial services.”
Hampl will work with Shaun Donnelly, USCIB’s vice president of investment and financial services, to coordinate the organization’s activities on cross-border investment and global finance. She will manage work in those areas by engaging with the U.S. government and working through USCIB’s global business network: the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Organization of Employers (IOE) and the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD. Hampl will also support Robert Mulligan, senior vice president for policy and government affairs, on trade policy issues.
