Dow Chemical CEO Named to President's Export Council

The Dow Chemical Co. announced that Andrew N. Liveris, chairman and CEO, has been appointed by President Barack Obama to the Export Council. Liveris joins labor leaders, congressional representatives and CEOs from other top U.S. companies in advising the Obama administration on how to achieve its goal of doubling exports in the next five years, which could create millions of new jobs and spur U.S. economic growth.

“I am honored to have been selected to serve on the Export Council, and applaud the president’s vision for driving a resurgence in U.S. exports,” Liveris said. “As we all know, growing exports is good for American manufacturers and good for the U.S. economy. Just as our predecessors ushered in a new wave of prosperity with the U.S. Industrial Revolution more than a century ago, we now have the opportunity to fuel a new era of sustainable economic growth for America. By creating pragmatic and purposeful trade policies, we will ensure we deploy the vast resources of this nation toward advanced manufacturing programs in high-growth sectors that will make America more competitive at a global level.”

Liveris’ 34-year Dow career has spanned manufacturing, engineering, sales, marketing, business and general management. He spent the bulk of his career in Asia, where he was general manager for the company’s Thailand businesses, and he later served as president of Dow’s entire Asia-Pacific operations. He began his Dow career in 1976 in Australia.
