Paul Moore directs Nathan’s Associates’ International Services practice, overseeing the operations, staffing, and management of a portfolio of economic policy, trade capacity building (TCB), and competitiveness projects. In this role, he draws on his 20 years of experience as a US trade negotiator, technical consultant, and a home office and field manager to ensure that Nathan Associates provides high quality, cost-effective, and reliable technical services.
At the same time, Mr. Moore contributes at the technical level to several trade projects, including as project director of USAID’s Peru Andean Trade Capacity Building (PATCB) project. He was Chief of Party of CRECER from 2005 to 2006, where he managed bilateral activities and designed the first Andean Regional Trade Capacity (TCB) Program. In 2007 he joined Nathan’s home office to serve as Managing Director of the Trade and Investment Unit, while also implementing the successor TCB program for the Andean region, MYPE Competitiva, the predecessor to PATCB.
Before joining the firm in 2006, Mr. Moore consulted with Nathan on a variety of projects. He wrote policy papers on WTO negotiating issues, conducted studies and seminars for the Dominican Republic and Mozambique on EU economic partnership agreements, contributed to trade negotiations training in Egypt and Madagascar, and participated in a workshop on trade capacity building priorities for USAID field officers.
Earlier, Mr. Moore held public and private sector positions in Washington, D.C. He was Director for Market Access in the WTO Affairs section at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; Assistant Vice President for Trade at the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States; and a trade specialist at the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he was responsible for export promotion and policy issues for Latin American countries.
