Fred Hochberg

Fred Hochberg is chairman and president of the Export-Import Bank, America’s official export credit agency. With globalization accelerating and the middle class rising throughout the developing world, winning the race for export success has never been more critical to America’s capacity to build a durable economy and achieve resilient job growth. The role of the Export-Import Bank is to level the playing field for U.S. exporters by equipping those who cannot access private financing with the tools they need to compete and win on the merits of their goods and services. As exports continue to drive America’s recovery — bringing millions of high-wage jobs to our shores that would otherwise end up elsewhere — the Export-Import Bank’s mission has never been more critical to the country’s long-term success.
