Today, Under Secretary for International Trade Gil Kaplan officially named Brian J. Lenihan as Executive Director of SelectUSA, the program within the International Trade Administration (ITA) dedicated to attracting and expanding business investment in the United States.
“Mr. Lenihan has been an important part of our team for more than a year, contributing to President Trump’s push to create a pro-growth business environment that provides more opportunities for hard-working Americans,” said Under Secretary Kaplan. “I know that his leadership and dedication to service will benefit SelectUSA as it continues its critical mission supporting U.S. economic growth.”
Mr. Lenihan will lead a global team that has facilitated more than $44 billion in new U.S. investment projects. Moreover, he and his team will focus on targeted industry sectors which the Trump Administration considers critical to maintaining U.S. economic leadership, including advanced manufacturing, space commerce, energy production, agriculture, and life sciences.
“We are glad to have someone like Brian helping to spearhead the U.S. government’s push to increase business investment in the industries that will dominate the 21st century,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Manufacturing Ian Steff.
“I am honored that Secretary Ross and Under Secretary Kaplan have selected me to lead the SelectUSA team and to support this important mission,” said Mr. Lenihan. “I look forward to working with this devoted team and this best-in-class program to support high paying jobs for U.S. workers and sustain the hundreds of billions of dollars in U.S. goods that are exported by majority foreign-owned firms.”
