Export-Import Bank Advisory Committee

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) has named Husch Blackwell partner Harvey Tettlebaum (Picture) to its 2019 Advisory Committee.

Tettlebaum will serve as one of 17 members of the committee, which advises EXIM on its programs and on the extent to which the agency provides financing to support American businesses seeking to export goods and services. Tettlebaum is the committee’s only member from the state of Missouri and just one of two members currently residing in the Midwest.

Based in Husch Blackwell’s Jefferson City office, Tettlebaum specializes in healthcare law and routinely represents healthcare providers and provider associations across the spectrum of care, including mental health professionals, pharmacists and pharmacies, emergency medical services, physicians and dentists.

EXIM is an independent federal agency that provides export credit to overseas purchasers of U.S. goods and services. The EXIM Board of Directors appointed the Advisory Committee during the open session of EXIM Board of Directors July 31 Meeting after an open nomination process was published in the Federal Register on June 21, 2019. The nomination process considered the congressional mandates for Advisory Committee representation, as well as the candidates’ business experiences and qualifications. The Advisory Committee broadly represents an array of sectors and stakeholder groups, including small business, agriculture, environment, finance, labor, services, and textiles, among others.
