SCGovernor Haley
optimistic about German
investment in the South
Engaging keynote speakers featured
South Carolina Governor Nikki R.
Haley, who in her speech thanked
the GACC South for being a viable
partner for expanding German
businesses. South Carolina, she
said, was a powerhouse of German
engineering and sustainable
economic investment.
Martina Stellmaszek, President &
CEO of the GACC South, welcomed
the GACC South’s ChairmanMartin
Richenhagen and the German Consul
General Christoph Sander.
Following the business forum,
members of the GACC South had the
opportunity to vote for candidates
for open seats on the Board of
Directors. The 2014 Board of
Directors was announced during
a dinner reception at Genevieve's
Restaurant, whichmarked the
conclusion of the day’s program.
The great degree of interest partici-
pants showed during the forum
reflected the continuing interest in
the South as a thriving business
location. From the coasts of the
Carolinas to the plains of Texas,
the GermanMittelstand is prospering
and sending impulses throughout
the nation.
Thank you to all sponsors for their
generous support, partners, board
members and GACC South staff for
this insightful and inspiring day.
