Director to Share Ins and Outs of Financing Exports at Duquesne Event

Area business owners who export products and services have the opportunity to attend a free business luncheon discussion to learn more about services and export-financing products from a director of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank).

The luncheon will introduce exporters to Sean Mulvaney, a member of the bank's board of directors. He will discuss the role of the bank and its major export financing programs on Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Duquesne University's Power Center Ballroom.

Mulvaney served as director of the economic policy program at the German Marshall Fund of the United State before receiving a presidential appointment to the Ex-Im board in 2011. He previously worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development. His background includes 10 years of legislative experience on Capitol Hill as an assistant to former Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert and as a trade and foreign policy advisor to Rep. Jim Kolbe of Arizona. Mulvaney's corporate experience includes brand management for the consumer products division of GlaxoSmithKline.
