WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced Myron Brilliant will step down as Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs, leaving the Chamber at the end of February.
“After almost 30 years of service to the U.S. Chamber, our members, and the global business community, it is impossible to list Myron’s many achievements,” said Suzanne P. Clark, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. “We thank him for his leadership, partnership, and service. While we will miss his counsel and friendship, we are excited for Myron that he is pursuing new opportunities after such a long and distinguished career at the Chamber.”
During Brilliant’s tenure, the Chamber developed the largest international program of any U.S. association. Among his many contributions, Brilliant helped promote a wide and deep bench of talent across the international team of some 70 global policy experts and advocates. With 20 bilateral business councils and an extensive network of American Chambers of Commerce (AmCham) partners across the world, the Chamber is active in more than 130 countries, promoting trade, investment, and commercial ties, while fighting policies that could harm American companies abroad or at home.
“All of us at the Chamber are deeply proud of the global role we play in advancing the interests of American businesses. The expertise and deep relationships across our international team are unparalleled and essential as the demand for global advocacy is growing,” Clark added. “We are confident that our unmatched international team will keep creating opportunities, solving problems, and serving our members wherever in the world they do business.”
“The U.S. Chamber’s International Division ensures the private sector has a strong advocate in governments and markets across the world. I am excited to pursue new opportunities in my life, but I am very thankful for working with so many incredibly talented people on my team and across the organization over my long career at the U.S. Chamber,” said Myron Brilliant. “Under the leadership of Suzanne Clark and with the incredible concentration of expertise across the international team, the American business community will continue to have a powerful partner fighting for them all over the world.”
The Chamber will launch a global search for a new Head of International Affairs immediately.
