SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2017 -- San Francisco: Golden Gate Global today announced that its founding CEO, Ginny Fang, has been elected to the Board of Directors of Invest in the USA (IIUSA). Since 2005, IIUSA has been the national membership-based not-for-profit EB-5 industry trade association. The election took place at IIUSA’s annual Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C.
“I am honored by the trust put in me by my colleagues at IIUSA,” said Fang. “The EB-5 program is an important tool for both increasing foreign direct investment and creating American jobs in communities across the United States. I look forward to working with IIUSA and all of our regional center partners to expand, improve, and more successfully promote the benefits of the EB-5 program.”
Fang completed her undergraduate studies at Dartmouth College, and earned a master’s in public policy from the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, where she continues to serve as a Board Member for the Alumni Association. She previously was the founding Executive Director of the ChinaSF economic development agency and has been named to the San Francisco Business Times’ “40 Under 40” list of rising business stars.
“Through founding, operating, and leading Golden Gate Global to industry-leading success, Ginny has demonstrated practical and effective leadership and is deeply vested in the successful future of EB-5,” said Willie L. Brown, Jr., former Mayor San Francisco and Golden Gate Global principal. “IIUSA membership made a great choice in selecting Ginny, who will be a tireless advocate for their interests.”
“I have always been impressed with the impact that IIUSA has had with lawmakers, members, and other industry stakeholders,” said Fang. “I am excited to work with everyone at the organization to move the EB-5 industry forward into its next chapter.”
