New CEO of NRW.INVEST subsidiary in Chicago



Aryan Zandieh starts in June 2020 as Chief Executive Officer of the North America office.

In order to promote dialog with investors, NRW.INVEST is represented worldwide by offices abroad. The USA is one of the most important investor countries. Here NRW.INVEST maintains a subsidiary in Chicago and another office in Silicon Valley. With Aryan Zandieh, NRW.INVEST USA (NORTH AMERICA) LLC has a new CEO.

Zandieh studied International Economics at the University of Göttingen and Public Economics and Economic Policy at the University of Nottingham. Most recently he worked as Sales Manager at Hannover Fairs USA, Inc. (Chicago, IL).

"Aryan Zandieh is well connected within the US economy and at the same time familiar with the German economy," says Petra Wassner, CEO of NRW.INVEST. The aim is to intensify direct contact with companies, associations and politics and to be able to welcome even more US investments to North Rhine-Westphalia in the future.

Zandieh is motivated as he looks ahead to his new task: "Our team is looking forward to further strengthening North Rhine-Westphalia as a location for business and investment and to expanding its diverse corporate landscape – from hidden champions to global market leaders such as 3M, Ford and Amazon," says Aryan Zandieh.
