AmCham Welcomes New Chair and Board Members

AmCham Denmark is delighted to welcome as its new Chair, Tisha Boatman, Managing Director at Siemens Healthineers, and to announce the appointment of three new board members: Catherine Williams, Managing Director at MSD, Klaus Borello, Country Manager, Denmark & Finland, Coca-Cola, and Tore von Würden, Country Director at Amgen.

Tisha Boatman assumes the Chair from Richard Wright, who has taken on a new role with Roche’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.

“AmCham has a strong history of working to create a competitive and sustainable business climate for U.S. and international companies. The organization has done great job engaging with political decision makers. It is with great humility that I take on this position to strengthen AmCham as the voice for international business in Denmark, and I look forward to working with my fellow AmCham board members to ensure the organization’s ongoing success”, says Tisha Boatman.
