The first IndianAmerican appointed to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Advisory Council will visit Atlanta to solidify a working relationship with a chamber of commerce here.

The Asian Indian Chamber of Commerce will introduce K.V. Kumar to the Atlanta community at a reception on Sept. 26.

Mr. Kumar is the elected chair of the international trade committee of the advisory council, a collection of 144 business leaders that advise the government on the direction and effectiveness of SBA programs.

He is also the president and CEO of BSCII, a consulting firm with connections around the world, founding chairman emeritus and board member of the U.S. Indian American Chamber of Commerce and president of the U.S. India Trade Foundation.

The reception comes two months after the Asian Indian chamber announced that it would partner with the Georgia office of the SBA to aid the development of small businesses.
