Cherod Webber, president and CEO of Columbia-based Innovative Global Supply LLC, has been named to the Export-Import Bank advisory committee for 2013.

The committee advises the Ex-Im Bank on its policies and programs, in particular on the extent to which the bank helps U.S. exporters compete. Congress established the panel 30 years ago.

"Our members represent various regions of our nation and all are committed to helping Ex-Im Bank achieve its mission of creating and sustaining U.S. jobs through exports,” said Fred Hochberg, chairman and president. “Our committee is responsible for offering fresh ideas, perspectives and insights, and I look forward to working with each of our new members."

Committee members represent small business, manufacturing, labor, services, finance and environmental concerns.

Webber’s company is a distributor and exporter of vitamins, food supplements and fortified food products that targets emerging markets in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Innovative Global Supply is the latest resident at the USC/Columbia Technology Incubator on Laurel Street.

Webber served 17 years as a BMW Manufacturing executive before he found his company.

The advisory committee’s chairman is Nelson Cunningham, managing partner of McLarty Associates in Washington, D.C.
