Washington, D.C. | March 2021 – RatnerPrestia is honored to have been selected as a Member Company of the Board of Directors of the German American Business Council (GABC). RP has been represented by its CEO, Jonathan H. Spadt, as a Leadership Member of the GABC since 2010.
Founded as an initiative of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2004, the GABC is an independent non-profit organization fostering a robust transatlantic business dialogue between Germany and the US. Its mission is to support businesses and entrepreneurship by building trust and understanding between global stakeholders.
Spadt’s interest in the GABC has been strong for many years, given the Firm’s interest in the transatlantic relationship. “The GABC is an exceptional organization, led by many extraordinary business leaders. Its strength emanates from its focus on the non-partisan sharing of expertise in all areas of bilateral trade and business,” Spadt says.
