U.S. Commercial Service Staff Changes
The U.S. Commercial Service Midwest Region will lose two of its most prominent and long-serving members as of December 31, 2013.
Mary N. Joyce, Director of the eight-state Midwest regional network, is retiring after many years of dedicated service both in Chicago and in Washington, D.C.
Julie Carducci, Director of the Chicago office of the U.S. Commercial Service since 2003, will begin training for an overseas assignment in Jakarta, Indonesia, that will start in summer 2014. We congratulate them both and wish them all the best in their new endeavors!
Lastly, Haley Pitonyak, our very capable Trade-Specialist-in-Training will begin working with Chicago-area Cosmetics firms, taking over this sector from Christian Koschil. Cosmetics companies are encouraged to contact Haley for assistance with their export-related questions at Haley.Pitonyak@trade.gov or 312-353-5096.
