Burton Receives Honorary Membership

Gregory Burton, economic officer at the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen and ex-officio liaison AmCham board member, received a Lifetime Honorary Membership from the Chamber at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on April 6.

Greg is taking on new diplomatic duties assisting reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan and will be leaving Denmark later this year. Greg, a career diplomat whose postings have included Kosovo, was described by AmCham Chairman Paul Coleman as an exemplary public servant willing and ready to take on tough assignments for his country.

U.S. Ambassador James P. Cain thanked Greg for his hard work, professionalism, and “incredible assistance” during his time in Copenhagen.

AmCham Executive Director Stephen Brugger thanked Greg for service on the Chamber’s board and his important contributions during a pivotal time in AmCham’s growth and development.

AmCham wishes Greg all the best with his new assignment.

O’Day Receives Honorary Membership

Daniel O’Day, General Manager, Roche and a departing member of AmCham’s board of directors has received the Chamber’s Lifetime Honorary Membership. Dan received his award on March 17.

Dan is leaving Denmark to take on new duties with Roche in San Francisco. A member of the AmCham board of directors since 2004, he was instrumental in setting the Chamber’s Pharmaceutical Committee on its productive course. As chairman of the committee, Dan oversaw the group’s 2005 position statement that urges investments in a broadly accessible, innovative health care system in Denmark.

AmCham representatives joined Roche executives and other employees for a farewell reception for Dan on March 31 at the pharmaceutical company’s offices in Hvidovre near Copenhagen. Participants described Dan’s competence, intelligence, professionalism, and warm personal skills: attributes of Dan that AmCham activists know well. AmCham wishes Dan and his family all the best as they prepare for their move to Northern California.
