We are delighted to welcome Kristin Isabelli as USCIB’s new director of customs and trade facilitation. In addition to staffing USCIB’s Customs and Trade Facilitation Committee, chaired by Jerry Cook (HanesBrands), Isabelli will serve as the International Chamber of Commerce’s representative to the World Customs Organization’s Harmonized System Committee, and as a member of the APEC Customs Business Working Group.
Isabelli brings significant Capitol Hill experience on trade and customs. She comes to USCIB from the House Committee on Ways and Means, where she worked as the trade legislative assistant for Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R – MI). Isabelli assisted in the completion of the Colombia, Panama and South Korea free trade agreements and the 112th Congress Customs Reauthorization Bill. She assisted in the creation of the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill process and website for the 112th and 113th Congresses.
“With a busy agenda on the customs and trade facilitation, we are fortunate to bring on someone of Kristin’s caliber,” said Rob Mulligan, USCIB’s senior vice president of policy and government affairs. “With her knowledge of the issues and the key policymakers, in addition to her Hill experience, she will be able to hit the ground running.”
Isabelli obtained a bachelor’s degree in international studies and French from Allegheny College, and she is currently working toward a master’s degree in international commerce at George Mason University.
