New York Ci­ty - Am­bas­sa­dor John B. Emer­son, Vice Chair­man at Ca­pi­tal Group In­ter­na­tio­nal and for­mer U.S. Am­bas­sa­dor to Ger­ma­ny, was elec­ted Chair­man of the Ame­ri­can Coun­cil on Ger­ma­ny (ACG) on Ja­nu­a­ry 17, 2018. He is the ACG’s sixth Chair­man sin­ce its foun­ding in 1952, fol­lo­wing in the foots­teps of John J. McC­loy, Se­na­tor Charles McC. Ma­thi­as, Jr., Ge­ne­ral John Gal­vin, Gar­rick Ut­ley, and Am­bas­sa­dor Robert M. Kim­mitt.

John B. Emer­son: “The Ger­man-Ame­ri­can re­la­ti­ons­hip is in­dis­pensa­ble. It is a gre­at suc­cess sto­ry – in eco­no­mic, po­li­ti­cal, and se­cu­ri­ty terms,” Am­bas­sa­dor Emer­son said. “The Ame­ri­can Coun­cil on Ger­ma­ny plays a si­gni­fi­cant ro­le in brin­ging to­ge­ther Ger­m­ans and Ame­ri­cans to ad­dress the wi­de ar­ray of com­mon chal­len­ges we face. I am de­ligh­ted to as­su­me this ro­le, and look for­ward to buil­ding on the ACG’s 65-ye­ar his­to­ry of streng­the­ning the trans­at­lan­tic re­la­ti­ons­hip.”
