The Wharton Global – X Group (WhGx)

Exploratory meeting on forming a new Affinity Group-Global X focused on global business relationships.

pedromontThe Wharton Club of New York invites alumni interested in forming groups to explore issues related to cross border business dealings and network development.

This group is designed for alumni based in the US (New York) who are routinely engaged in business dealings with non US entities and whose contacts are based outside the US. Members must be (one of the) primary contact for the firm’s non US contacts and be responsible for leading the relationship with their counterparts. Members must also have been in this role for a minimum of three years. To become part of this group, you must be a member of the Wharton Club of New York.

The first meeting will focus on US businesses that have dealings with China but also welcomes alumni working with businesses in other regions that are interested in forming their own subgroup. As enough members join to justify additional individual groups reflecting a country or region, such groups may be formed.

Pedro Mont Wong will Chair the first Global X meeting and will lead the discussion on US /China and US/ Latin America business issues.
