Peters Blog: US-Ambassadors visit

U.S. Botschafter der Schweiz, Donald S. Beyer und den U.S. Botschafter in Norwegen, Barry B. White
Shortly after the Easter break we had the great opportunity to welcome two dignitaries from the United States, the ambassador of the U.S. in Switzerland, Donald S. Beyer Jr. and the ambassador of the U.S. in Norway, Barry B. White.

We met for lunch at the institute and could profit from the gorgeous weather and the fantastic atmosphere. We discussed various topics, including the necessity for contemporary business education to adapt to the real needs of the economy. Briefly, what we from the Lorange Institute work for day after day.

Barry B. White was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be Ambassador of the United States of America to Norway on September 22, 2009. In a confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Mr. White emphasized the commitment shared by Norway and the U.S. to promoting human rights, democracy, and freedom throughout the world.

Prior to his appointment as Ambassador, Barry White served for over 13 years as Chairman and Managing Partner (CEO) of Foley Hoag LLP, where he was a senior partner in the firm’s business, corporate, international and government strategies practice areas. He practiced law at Foley Hoag for 40 years.

Donald S. Beyer Jr. was sworn in as the United States Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein on August 5, 2009.

Ambassador Beyer is a nationally recognized political, business and philanthropic leader.  Over the last thirty years, he built a strong reputation in Virginia, where he grew a successful and reputable business, and spent eight years as Lieutenant Governor. 

In addition to his political career, Ambassador Beyer is recognized as a leader in business.  He built a profitable and community-based collection of retail automobile dealerships, representing eight franchises and four manufacturers:  Volvo, Land Rover, Subaru, and Kia. The Beyer business brand is one of the best-known retail automobile names in the nation.
