New Leadership at the Business Advisory Council for SEE

The Business Advisory Council for Southeast Europe and Eurasia (BAC SEE) selected new leadership today in Istanbul, Turkey to head up the Council for an interim period of reorganization.  The two Co-Chairmen are Alexander Munteanu (of Moldova and Ukraine) and Ambassador Victor Jackovich (of the United States).  Munteanu is senior manager at Dragon Capital in Kiev, Ukraine.  Jackovich is CEO of Jackovich International and a former U.S. Ambassador to several countries.

The Business Advisory Council is an association of some 45 independent businessmen from the regions and beyond, who provide technical expertise and advice to international organizations, financial institutions, individual governments and others.

The outgoing Co-Chairman Halil Kulluk (of Turkey) was praised for his stewardship of the Council at a particularly critical time of serious challenges in both Europe and Eurasia.  Kulluk had co-chaired the Council with Munteanu, who consented to continue in that capacity, now with Jackovich.

At the meeting, members of the Council also discussed updates to the organizational structure and recommendations for future activities.

The Council is expected to meet again in late November in Vienna, Austria, on the margins of the Vienna Economic Forum (VEF), with which the BAC SEE signed a partnership agreement in 2010.
