Villanova, PA, January 29, 2014 — Kimberly A. Cahill, director of the Center for Global Leadership at the Villanova School of Business (VSB), will continue to serve on the Mid-Atlantic District Export Council (DEC). The only representative from higher education in the region, Cahill’s term has been renewed for four more years.
The DEC, representing Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, is an organization whose members are drawn from U.S. industry and whose knowledge of international business provides a unique source of professional advice to help American firms compete and win business in the global marketplace. The DEC works closely with the U.S. Commercial Service offices in Philadelphia and South Central New Jersey, volunteering their time, energy and expertise to increase awareness of export opportunities and export resources available to small and medium sized businesses. For over three decades, the Mid-Atlantic DEC has aided the expansion of local companies in entering new overseas markets and exporting for the first time, thus promoting the nation’s economic growth and creating new and higher-paying jobs for the business community.
Kim Cahill commented, “Serving on the DEC allows me to connect international business education directly with global firms in our region and to contribute leadership experience in support of the Nations joint industry/government export expansion effort.”
