Sharyn Koenig Promotes Us Exportimport Bank In Region Helping Small Business Exporters Meet Needs Build Business

Written by on October 28, 2010

After spending most of her career working with the US Export-Import Bank, Sharyn Koenig knew she was committed to the bank’s mission to boost US exports but decided to do it among South Florida’s palms.

She was born, raised and began her career working for an agent of Ex-Im Bank in New Jersey. The agency, which she called one of Washington’s "best-kept secrets," offers loan guarantees and working capital to manufacturers and exporters of US-made goods and services.

Ms. Koenig is one of three Ex-Im representatives responsible for promoting the bank’s products throughout the Southeast, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. They do it by working with individual businesses.

"[Our job] is to help small business exporters understand their needs and help them through the application process," she said. "If they decide they want credit insurance, it’s our job to explain the different policies and products, which one would best suit their needs, and bring business in."

Beyond working with individual exporters, the Southeast regional office is continually reaching out to businesses and banks in hopes of partnering to help fulfill President Obama’s goal of doubling US exports over the next five years.

Ms. Koenig was interviewed by Miami Today staff writer Zachary S. Fagenson in the bank’s offices overlooking Miami International Airport.
