Hoeven Statement on Confirmation of Nominees for Export-Import Bank Board of Directors

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement after supporting the confirmation of three nominees to serve on the Export-Import Bank Board of Directors, including:

  • Kimberly Reed, president of the Export-Import Bank.
  • Former-Congressman Spencer Bachus, board member.
  • Judith DelZoppo Pryer, board member.

“Exports are a vital part of North Dakota’s economy, supporting growth in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, energy and manufacturing,” Hoeven said. “The Export-Import Bank provides important services to help businesses across our state and nation access new markets. By filling these three board positions, the bank will now be better able to provide this assistance, which is especially welcome as our exporters weather the challenges of retaliatory tariffs and trade uncertainty.”
