The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has announced the establishment of a new presence in Geneva


This latest expansion undertaking, in ICC’s Centenary year, aims to further strengthen the world business organisation’s international engagement and outreach on behalf of over 45 million companies worldwide.

ICC has appointed Crispin Conroy as ICC Representative Director to lead/coordinate the Geneva operations.

Mr Conroy joins ICC following a 25-year career in international diplomacy with both the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission. His diplomatic career included ambassadorial postings in Nepal and Chile – where he also held responsibility for Bolivia, Colombia Ecuador and Peru – as well as a three year posting in Geneva.

More recently, he has held senior trade and investment roles in Latin America and Europe.

Mr Conroy brings a deep knowledge of international affairs and intergovernmental processes, together with extensive experience working with corporations to achieve tangible outcomes, both through the provision of advice on market entry and investment strategies as well as through the promotion of policy reforms.
