Michael G. Kessler, President of Kessler International today announced the appointment of Stephen P. Lynch as Director of Client Care & Development. The appointment takes effect immediately.
Mr. Lynch will be responsible for coordinating projects in the Far East and working with staff in Kessler’s offices to identify potential business and economic opportunities. Mr. Lynch initially will be based out of the firm’s New York office but will staff an office in Beijing once the Ministry of Justice of the People’s Republic of China grants approval to open a representative office in Beijing.

Following his Marine Corps service Mr. Lynch spent several years in the defense and tech industries including General Dynamics Information Technology and overseas defense product marketing and development.

Mr. Kessler said, “Kessler International has an incredible depth of talent in its staff and strong loyalty from its current clients and is looking forward to bringing its brand to the Peoples Republic of China.
