Jonathan A. Fink has over twenty-five years experience working with the senior management of manufacturers and high volume exporters ranging from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to multi-billion dollar transnational corporations. His ability to understand the complexities of doing business in the global market grows out of years of experience working in and with the international business operations management of high technology, consumer products and agribusiness related firms in the United States, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
After holding post-graduate positions as an investment banker with Thomas James Associates in Washington D.C. and Manager of Government Relations with the New York based American Association of Exporters and Importers (AAEI), Jonathan took up a position based out of Jakarta, Indonesia where he served as Export Marketing Advisor to the senior management of PT Argo Pantes, Integrated Textile Industries, one of Asia’s largest fully integrated woven textile mill manufacturers. While with Argo Pantes, flagship company of the annual $2 billion dollar Argo Manunggal Group conglomerate, Jonathan worked with the firm’s senior management to resolve and successfully negotiate several technical international trade matters including two anti-dumping cases filed against the company by the European Union (EU) and two high volume multi-million dollar technology licensing manufacturing agreements. In addition, he was in charge of developing and implementing a corporate market diversification plan that resulted in approximately ten million dollars of new textile exports into regional Asian markets in its initial year of implementation. Working on behalf of the management of the conglomerate, he served on a senior management team that prepared a feasibility study to convert a 10,000 hectare Argo Manunngal owned cocoa plantation in West Sumatra, Indonesia into a production and processing of palm oil for export to the industrialized world markets.
