The US Chamber of Commerce has announced that Patrick Ottensmeyer, president and CEO of Kansas City Southern (KCS) (pictured), has been elected as US Chairman of its US-Mexico Economic Council.

“Pat is a highly respected leader in US-Mexico relations,” said Myron Brilliant, executive vice president and head of International Affairs for the US Chamber of Commerce. “Not only does he lead a company that connects the integrated North American economy, but he has also demonstrated a continuous commitment over many years to promoting and strengthening the bilateral relationship through engagement with government officials, private-sector peers, and the public. The Council will benefit greatly from his leadership and vision during this important period.”

As US Chairman of the US-Mexico Economic Council, Ottensmeyer will preside over the US-Mexico CEO Dialogue, which occurs twice annually, and he will oversee the Council’s extensive agenda of engagement with public- and private-sector leaders in the US and Mexico in an effort to strengthen bilateral commercial ties.

“I am honoured to accept this opportunity to continue the important work of the US-Mexico Economic Council, to ensure both a strong economic and trade relationship between the two countries and that North America remains the world’s most competitive, integrated trading block,” said Ottensmeyer. “The Council and it’s US- Mexico CEO Dialogue are comprised of committed business leaders, who have been working together for more than five years and who provide a unique connection between private-sector leaders and government policymakers.”

The US-Mexico Economic Council serves as the premier business advocacy organisation dedicated to strengthening the economic and commercial relationship between both countries.
