Alan T. Eusden, incumbent president of Corning Display Technologies Taiwan (CDTT), was recently elected as chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei (AmCham). The AmCham is a non-profit, non-partisan business organization dedicated to promoting the interests of international business in Taiwan. With more than 900 members representing more than 500 companies, AmCham speaks with collective authority on international business matters in every sector of the economy. Mrs. Eusden was named president of CDTT in January 2007 by Corning Inc. of the United States. Corning is the leading glass substrate supplier to thin film transistor-liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panel suppliers in Taiwan and operates several glass furnaces in Central Taiwan Science Park (CTSP) and Southern Taiwan Science Park (STSP). The new AmCham chairman said that he had seen AmCham“s great contributions to members so was pleased to take the helm of the organization. He believed that AmCham would continue to be a very influential organization and propose constructive opinions to the Taiwan government. Year 2009 would be full of challenges to all enterprises, he said, and AmCham would hold to its original intention of promoting industrial development in Taiwan. According to Corning, Mr. Eusden joined Corning in 1983 as a financial analyst in the electronics division. In 1984, he joined the telecommunications products division as assistant plant controller and then plant controller at the Wilmington, North Carolina, plant. In 1987, he moved to Corning, New York, as TPD“s manager of manufacturing control and analysis. Mr. Eusden moved to the specialty materials manufacturing division in 1990 as division controller. In 1992 he was appointed director of finance and control for the specialty materials sector. At the end of 1994, Mr. Eusden relocated to Germany as the general manager of Corning GmbH, including markets in Europe, Russia, South America, Africa and the Middle East.
