Mr. Stephens has been a member of the Board since 2013 and has been an active contributor to the NACCC. Mr. Stephens looks forward to this new stage with the Chamber, as he stated in a letter to members of the Board: “I would love the opportunity to give back by lending my organizational and team management skills to advance the interests of the NACCC ­− I am a firm believer that the Chamber can be a vehicle for the betterment of Chileans and Americans”. 

Mr. Stephens is a Shareholder at the New York office of Greenberg Traurig. His practice focuses on financing and capital markets transactions in Latin America.

The NACCC looks forward to having Mr. Stephens as its new President, working alongside him to continue to perfect its mission and strategic goals. In the short term, the Chamber will continue to be actively involved in Chile’s current constitutional process, fostering in-bound and out-bound trade, and support entrepreneurs and new business wanting to establish operations in new markets. 

The Chamber would also like to take this opportunity to thank Manuelita Cody for her invaluable dedication to the Chamber throughout these years, helping to attract new members, increasing member participation and engagement, as well as collaborating with new strategic partners both in Chile and the United States.
