In doing so, EXIM levels the playing field for U.S. exporters going up against foreign competition in overseas markets, enabling American companies to create and maintain more good-paying jobs here in the U.S. The Bank provides coverage in more than 185 countries and no U.S. company or transaction is too big or too small.

    This position is located in the Office of the SVP Communications under the supervision of the Senior Vice President of Communications and other staff within the Communications division. This office is responsible for public affairs activities, business and media outreach, and marketing of EXIM Bank programs.
