Greenwich Retired Men’s Association welcomes former U.S. ambassador

The Greenwich Retired Men’s Association will welcome Tom Niles, vice chairman of the United States Council for International Business and former United States ambassador as its speaker July 2.

Mr. Niles believes that the policies followed by President Obama and his predecessor toward Putin’s Russia clearly have not worked. Based on his experience and insights gained over 36 years in the United States Foreign Service, Ambassador Niles will try to answer why they these methods have not worked and suggest alternatives that would better advance American interests. Mr. Niles would be pleased to respond to questions on other current foreign policy matters.

Mr. Niles served as Ambassador to Canada (1985-89), Ambassador to the European Union (1989-91), Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Canada (1991-93), and Ambassador to Greece (1993-97). Earlier in his career, he served in Belgrade, Moscow twice and the United States Mission to NATO in Brussels as well as in the Department of State.

In 1999, he became President of the United States Council for International Business which advances the global interests of American business both at home and abroad, promoting an open system of world trade, finance, and investment. It is the U.S. affiliate of the International Chamber of Commerce, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development, and the International Organization of Employers. In April 2005 he retired as president of USCIB and became its vice chairman.

The next RMA speaker will be Captain Jay Dirnberger, speaking on unmanned aerial vehicles, more commonly known as drones July 9.
