Founder, Spencer Ross

Chairman and Director, National Institute of World Trade (NIWT), New York

Spencer has been active in global trade for 50 years in an array of senior management positions serving the companies he worked for and the general international trade community.

By many, he is considered one of the most knowledgeable and highly skilled international executives in the United States. Newsday, a leading NY Newspaper and many astute global players refer to Spencer as “Mr. International”.

He has served multinational corporations such as General Electric, Bendix and Sperry, becoming a Vice President of the latter two, with responsibilities which included all aspects of international trade.

In 1986, Spencer focused over 25 years of experience into creating the National Institute of World Trade (NIWT) which was chartered by the State of New York as a not-for-profit, international consulting and educational training organization.

That organization is recognized today as a leader in global education, training, leadership and consulting with a team of experienced professionals serving both the public and private arena.
