Scottish American Business Alliance

ESTABLISHING an operation in the US is less risky than is widely perceived, according to SABA, the Scottish American Business Alliance. An American delegation from the networking group concluded their week long informational visit to Aberdeen on Thursday 3rd of July, with an evening reception held at Norwood Hall Hotel.

The event which was attended by 55 representatives from the North East’s Civic and Business communities, marked the end of a trip to reach out to Scottish businesses and break down barriers to operating in the US.

The founder members of SABA are Gus Bourgeois, Legal Counsel at Houston-based law firm, Boyar Millar, Lisa Morton, director of Business Development at the tax advisory firm ABIP and Taylor Parker, sales director of Payroll at the Human Resources specialists, Paychex.

Together they have been helping companies establish a foothold in America for nearly three years and formally launched the networking advisory group two months ago. Their inaugural visit consisted of meetings with Finance companies, Technology Specialists, Accountancy firms and other Oil and Gas service companies whilst also including Aberdeen City Council and Chamber representatives.
