Introduction and Welcome from Author, Neal Asbury

Welcome and thank you for visiting my new Asbury’s World blog.  I’m Neal Asbury and have been involved in global business since graduating from Roirdan State University in New Jersey in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.  In 1981, I moved to Asia representing the interests of a number of U.S. manufacturers at that time throughout the region.
Six years later, I founded Asbury WorldWide which became the largest American Export Management Company in its segment, with twelve distribution facilities around the globe.  In 1989, I started FAB Asia, Inc. in Manila, Philippines, which was the exclusive Asian fabricator of commercial kitchens for McDonalds as well as other well-known American chains.

In July of 1999, I sold my group of companies and established Greenfield World Trade which today is a leading, global trading company selling and servicing American manufactured products in over 130 countries to both retail and commercial marketplaces.

It has been such an honor to have recently won the coveted United States National Champion Exporter of the Year Award and I have been fortunate to be a past recipient of the E-Star Export Award and the Export Achievement Award from the U.S. Department of Commerce.  I enjoy speaking about my experiences and have spoken before the United Nations at the Commission of Trade and Development, top Universities and key Trade Associations. In addition, I am a founding faculty member of Export University, which is collaboration between the District Export Council and the U.S. Department of Commerce.

I am really excited to launch this blog and share more of my insights and experiences.  To The Point News, a Washington D.C. based Intel Service - widely read by government and business leaders across the country, features my column on global business issues entitled Asbury’s World for their readers.  One of my articles, The Great Debate, was adopted as the theme of the 2007 National District Export Council Conference moderated by CNN award winning journalist Gene Randell.

I’ve testified before the Philippine Senate on multiple occasions regarding foreign trade and reside as chairman of the South Florida District Export Council, appointed to serve by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce. As an active member, I support the International Policy Committee of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington D.C. and continue to discuss important trade issues on national television.

My home is in Weston, Florida shared with my lovely wife Elizabeth and two amazing daughters, Anjelica and Alyssa.  Please feel free to participate and leave comments and feedback.

From your thoughts and experiences in the global marketplace, we all grow together and benefit from the conversation.
