CHRISTIAN B. MARSH Executive Director
Chris Marsh draws on nearly three decades of experience in both the public and private sectors to assist clients facing complex international trade challenges. Chris works with clients on a variety of international trade matters, ranging from antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings to Customs and Border Protection rulings and enforcement actions.  He is also involved in providing economic consulting support for antitrust, commercial and other litigation matters.

Prior to joining Georgetown Economic Services (GES), Chris served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations at the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Enforcement & Compliance.  During his time at Commerce, Chris helped provide relief to U.S. industries injured by unfairly traded imports. He restructured the 175-employee business unit, significantly improving the efficient and effective enforcement of U.S. trade remedy laws.

Chris also designed and launched the Enforcement & Compliance’s (E&C) first formal training program.  He led the unit in investigating an unprecedented number of AD/CVD cases, issuing nearly 2,000 determinations over six years, all within statutory deadlines and with historically low staff levels.  Moreover, Chris enhanced E&C’s relationship with U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) resulting in an increase in both timeliness and accuracy of instructions issued to U.S. ports for the collection of AD/CVD duties and a reduction in customs fraud and duty evasion.

Prior to joining Commerce, Chris provided complex accounting and litigation support in international trade matters as principal in a leading consulting firm.  Chris is a Certified Public Accountant and formerly worked in audit and tax at Price Waterhouse Coopers.

In the legislative arena, Chris advised Congressional members and their staffs in drafting provisions of both the American Trade Enforcement Effectiveness Act and the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act, both of which became public laws.  Notably, he received the Departmental Gold Medal for leading a team in drafting complex bipartisan legislation.  Chris was also a Presidential Rank Award nominee, the highest award given to federal government senior executives for “sustained extraordinary achievement.” 

Chris is not licensed to practice law.
