Jackson Walker attorney Manny Schoenhuber has unanimously been named a Board Member of the European American Chamber of Commerce (EACC) Texas.
With over 10,000 European and American executives worldwide, the EACC provides access to transatlantic business opportunities and timely, relevant information on matters impacting business activities between the EU and the US. The EACC Texas chapter specifically focuses on accelerating business and network relations between Texas and Europe.
As a Board Member, Manny, who was born and raised in Germany, helps raise the EACC’s profile and visibility locally, nationally, and internationally. He will also regularly gather with fellow board members to plan and execute programs and networking activities, and will participate in annual meetings.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to join the Board of EACC Texas,” Manny noted. “It not only allows me to share my experience in representing European companies and investors with an entire network of Europeans in Texas as well as Europe, but also provides an amazing platform to me, my European clients, and JW because we are Texas-based with a global reach. I want to thank Ruth Baron, Erin McKelvey, all current EACC Texas Board members, and staff for their trust and support. I cannot wait to get started.”
“It not only allows me to share my experience in representing European companies and investors with an entire network of Europeans in Texas as well as Europe, but also provides an amazing platform to me, my European clients, and JW because we are Texas-based with a global reach.”
