Export-Import Bank Looking for Foreign Language RMs
Deseret News 11Jan00 P4
By Max Knudson: Deseret News business editor

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- James A. Harmon, chairman and president of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, came to Salt Lake City on Thursday looking for those with language skills to take positions with the bank. "I feel strongly about visiting Salt Lake because there are people who speak a lot of different languages in Utah and I hope to persuade some bright young people out there to come to Washington D.C."

He was also scheduled to speak at the Garn Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by the David Eccles School of Business and Garn Institute of Finance at the University of Utah.

Harmon thinks LDS returned missionaries would be perfect for the bank, "It may be a hard sell because I believe most people in Utah are community oriented rather than federal government oriented, but the Ex-Im Bank is a good place to learn about the world and with all of the people there who travel abroad on missions, I should think many Utahns already know much about the world."
