After more than 15 years of devotedly serving the American-Danish Business Council, our Co-Chair of the ADBC, Steve Williams, has decided to step aside to give room for another to shape the direction and priorities of the ADBC.
We would like to express our sincerest gratefulness for Steve’s tremendous work with the ADBC throughout the many years. Steve has been instrumental in getting the Council to where we are today, bringing our two nations closer and moving forward together, while building a unique platform for the voices of our business communities to be heard. We wish Steve all the best, and we hope to be able to continue working with him in the Council in another capacity going forward.
In accordance to existing bylaws, a vote on the board occurred on March 23, 2021 to designate a replacement for the Co-Chair function. We are now happy to announce that, with a unanimous vote in favor, the board have appointed existing board member of the ADBC, Douglas Morgante, VP of U.S. Government Relations for Maersk, as the new Co-Chair in the council.
About his new role, Douglas says: “I look forward to working with Ambassador Wisborg and the entire ADBC membership to achieve the Council’s goals and increase business development between our two countries. We will build upon the longstanding history and tradition of strong relations between Denmark and the United States.”
We congratulate Douglas on his new function and we look much forward to his leadership alongside with the ADBC Chair, Ambassador Wisborg. There are so many important issues to address and with so many developments and opportunities in the transatlantic partnership, and not least with the gradual reopening of our societies, we are gearing up for exciting times in the ADBC.
