Here's a Press release I want to share with you from friends at LULAC:
LULAC Applauds President Barack Obama For Nominating Frank J. Sánchez To Undersecretary Of Commerce For International Trade
Sánchez served as a Policy Advisor on Latin America to the Obama and chairman of the National Leadership Council in Obama's presidential campaign.
Washington, DC - The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the largest and oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country, is elated over the nomination of Frank J. Sánchez to be Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade in Obama Administration.
“Frank Sánchez brings valuable experience and background to the position,” said LULAC National President Rosa Rosales. “This appointment would give him a key role in U.S. trade policy. The undersecretary for international trade oversees four divisions and more than 1,000 employees in trade offices in 85 countries. Frank is no stranger to LULAC and has been involved with the organization for over 10 years.”
In 1999, he became a Special Assistant to the President of the United States working in the Office of the Special Envoy for the Americas. He worked with the National Security Council, the State Department and the U.S. Trade Representative on Western Hemisphere economic integration and the promotion of democracy.
President Clinton later appointed Mr. Sánchez as U.S. Assistant Secretary of Transportation where he developed aviation policy and oversaw international negotiations. Prior to his work in the federal government and before joining a Cambridge, Massachusetts based consulting company, he practiced corporate and administrative law with the firm of Steel, Hector and Davis in Miami, Florida.
Before practicing law, he served in the administration of former Florida Governor and former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, as the first director of the state’s Caribbean Basin Initiative Program.
At CNS, Mr. Sánchez works with corporations and governments worldwide on complex transactions, labor-management negotiations, litigation settlement, negotiation strategy, alliance management, facilitation and training.
Among his public-sector engagements, Mr. Sánchez headed a team in Medellín, Colombia as part of a “Teaching Tolerance” program; an initiative to break the cycle of violence plaguing the country. More than 300 teachers and community leaders were trained in conflict resolution techniques. He also advised the president of Ecuador in negotiations to settle the 56-year-old border dispute with Peru.
He is a contributing author to Negociación 2000, a collection of essays on negotiation published by McGraw-Hill. He has also taught negotiation at the Program of Instruction for Lawyers at Harvard Law School.
A Florida native, Mr. Sánchez attended the University of Florida, received his undergraduate and law degrees from Florida State University and holds a master’s degree in public administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
The League of United Latin American Citizens advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health, housing and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 700 LULAC councils nationwide.
