Burns, Senior Advisor of Teneo LTd, Retired Chairman and CEO of VEON Ltd and Retired Chairman and CEO of Xerox Corporation.
“It’s my privilege to be recognised for Standard Chartered’s role in facilitating commerce and prosperity for British and American businesses around the world. We are proud to build on our shared heritage and common values and look forward to continuing doing so.” – Bill Winters
“On behalf of my 31,000 Chubb colleagues, I am honored to accept the U.S. Transatlantic Business Award in recognition of our longstanding presence in the United Kingdom and commitment to transatlantic commerce. Our two nations have an enduring relationship that transcends business – together we can address many of society’s biggest challenges.” – John Keogh
“The BritishAmerican Business association is more relevant now then ever, as we try, as a world, to build back better. In everything from capitalism to philanthropy, from trade to education, The United Stated and the United Kingdom have to work more closely together and that’s what BAB is all about.”– Ursula M. Burns
BritishAmerican Business is grateful to its community of supporters, especially during these most challenging times. The success of its Transatlantic Business Awards reflects the ongoing growth of BritishAmerican Business, which has continued to expand its programming, advocacy work, business services and membership on both sides of the Atlantic over the past year.
