Expanding Your Business Internationally – Join Us


Expanding a business across borders presents unique challenges, even for experienced and sophisticated businesspeople.

I’ve put together a terrific (if I do say so myself) panel of seasoned experts for The Private Directors Association, Expanding Your Business Internationally: What Management Should Know and How a Board Can Help. This valuable event is taking place Wednesday, March 27 at The Build Institute in Detroit.

Our panel brings years of experience in executive, board, and advisor roles to help you execute your expansion successfully.  Maximiliane (Max) Straub is Chief Financial Officer and an Executive Vice President at Robert Bosch LLC, and has served on boards of businesses expanding around the world. Joseph A. Amine is the Director in Charge of International Services at Moore Stephen Doeren Mayhew where his work focuses on strategic issues for private businesses and the families who own them. Ian Bund, Plymouth Growth Partners Founding Partner, has served as a board member and investor in many international businesses.  I bring experience from Guardian Industries Corp’s expansion from five countries to 27 during my tenure, and from advising large and small businesses on their expansions.

The event will be held at The Build Institute in Detroit. The Build Institute helps individuals turn business ideas into reality with resources and support. The institute has graduated over 1,700 aspiring entrepreneurs, including multiple Hatch Detroit finalists each year. This program will begin with April Jones Boyle from The Build Institute speaking on their commitment to growing businesses.

The program will run as follows:
5:30 PM – Registration and Networking
6:00 PM – Program
7:15 PM – Conclusion and Networking

Have your questions answered and receive counsel to begin selling internationally, getting actions accomplished across culture and language, building business operations overseas, and the role of the board.
