Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 27 when the Partnership hosts its inaugural State of Houston's Global Economy luncheon at the JW Marriot Galleria.

At the event, the Partnership's Senior Vice President of Research, Patrick Jankowski, will share his team's assessment of Houston's place in the global economy. The report goes beyond the well-known facts about Houston's position as a global leader and focuses on factors such as export demand, trends in foreign direct investment, real estate acquisitions and corporate business ties.

Attendees will receive a copy of the research team's analysis, Global Houston, including an assessment of the ties between Houston and our top 20 trade partners.

Following the presentation, a panel of experts in global finance, supply chain management, international sales, and contract logistics will share their experiences managing global operations from a Houston location. The panel includes:

Sam Bikman, Sr. VP Global Supply Chain, Goodman Global
John Magee, President and CEO, Crane Worldwide Logistics
David Peebles, Vice President, Business Development, Odebrecht Group
Lori Vetters, Sr. VP and Regional Commercial Executive, HSBC Holdings

Lisa Shumate, Executive Director and General Manager at Houston Public Media, will moderate the panel discussion.
