Jason Giulietti, Vice President of Business Recruitment for the Connecticut Economic Resource Center, Inc., (CERC) has been selected to serve as Board Vice President and member of the Executive Committee of The World Affairs Council of Connecticut. The Council is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization founded in 1924, with a mission to promote public understanding of global affairs and world issues by sponsoring programs, discussion series and seminars on international politics, business and culture.

"I am proud to join the board of the World Affairs Council, to help advance their important work advancing public knowledge about global issues, many of which affect us right here close to home. They have an impressive legacy, and provide a perfect fit with my work at CERC, where I am collaborating with businesses from throughout the world on a daily basis, explaining the many advantages of Connecticut," said Giulietti.

As Vice President of Business Recruitment at CERC, Giulietti supports the state's business development and recruitment initiatives by cultivating and managing relationships with strategic partners and prospective business clients interested in doing business in Connecticut.

Prior to joining CERC, Mr. Giulietti worked at the Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce as senior vice president, with the University of Connecticut Foundation as director of corporate relations, and for the Connecticut Business and Industry Association as a research economist. He was named a "40 Under Forty" award recipient by both the Hartford Business Journal and Connecticut Magazine, and earned a master of public administration degree and a bachelor's degree in political science, both from the University of Connecticut. He is a resident of West Hartford.
