MUSCATINE, Iowa – Stanley Consultants Vice President and General Counsel Henry Marquard has been appointed to the Iowa District Export Council (DEC).

Export councils are organized on a state level to work with all branches of the US government in facilitating the export of goods and services from companies located in that state. The Iowa DEC provides leadership across Iowa on exporting through its 15-member council of global business veterans and experts, all appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce. The role of the Iowa DEC is to provide mentoring to business executives and international sales staff, company outreach, coaching for international strategic planning, and training for Iowa businesses and services operating overseas. Through the U.S. Export Council, DECs also advise the Secretary of Commerce on export related policy. The Iowa DEC brings together the resources of the Federal and State governments, as well as those of Iowa business, to promote the exporting of goods and services.
Marquard said he is delighted to share with other Iowa firms the knowledge and experience he has gained from exporting Stanley Consultants’ professional services for 25 years. “It’s an honor to serve on a council whose primary mission is to help Iowa companies break into the overseas market. Stanley Consultants has a strong overseas presence which we can leverage to help other Iowans,” said Marquard.
