Andrea Klyczek is the Director of Marketing for the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency. Niagara County is a bi-national region that is in part dependent upon its international location.  The local opportunities for our international economy and the derivatives of that economy are immeasurable, as such Andrea is committed to the realization of this regions potential.  Her focus has been to market and promote the County of Niagara throughout and the lower provinces of Canada.

Andrea regularly hosts educational forums for the local business community, partnering with the Department of Commerce, Customs brokers, and trade and logistics specialists.  Through her efforts she has been able to offer seminars that encourage growth beyond the U.S. border.  Such topics have included boosting international trade, optimizing company websites to attract foreign investment, duty deferral strategies, the basics of NAFTA, and FTZ designation.

Andrea’s efforts on the other side of the border have included marketing U.S. sites and programs that would assist Canadian companies in expanding into the United States.  Andrea has assisted with site development, land specification, local demographic information, professional introductions, incentives, and navigating the U.S. path to business operations.

Andrea regularly works on both sides of the border, and has hosted United States events in Canada in an effort to bring U.S. trade professionals right to the Canadian business owner. Additionally, Andrea currently holds a seat as secretary of the Niagara Falls International Airport Stakeholders Group, has previously been a board member on the Binational Alliance, vice chairwoman of the Niagara County Economic Development Committee and chairwoman of the Niagara County Greenway Committee.  Andrea holds a Bachelors degree in Political Science from Canisius College, with a minor in accounting. 

Andrea was honored to be asked to be a part of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Canada and views the Chamber as a means to further grow our region as the international epicenter it will become.
