We would like to congratulate Eric Dalby on his recent Accredited Zone Specialist (AZS) designation!
The reputable program was created to elevate professional standards and distinguish Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) professionals who have demonstrated knowledge of the FTZ program and can easily adapt to change in today’s challenging environment. The designation is based on meeting the criteria of employment in the FTZ field, involvement at NAFTZ seminars and conferences, and active participation both in the NAFTZ community and FTZ field. Currently fewer than 75 individuals hold this certification.
Accredited by the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones (NAFTZ), the program was created with the intention to help individuals connect with the association and its resources. The NAFTZ has been implementing professional development programs, like its AZS designation, for the last 40 years in support of its mission to serve as the FTZ program’s principal educator.
With nearly 20 years’ experience in the global trade arena, with special emphasis on technology and compliance, Dalby understands well the challenges importers, exporters, brokers and forwarders face daily in navigating the regulatory environment. As a licensed Customs broker and certified Customs specialist working for major apparel firms, Dalby acquired an in-depth understanding of both Customs’ requirements and the internal processes needed to satisfy them. In that regard, he helped lead efforts to automate global trade and transition to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).
As the current Director of FTZ Implementations at QuestaWeb, he is applying his considerable knowledge to our Foreign Trade Zone practice. He assists major corporations in leveraging the economic benefits FTZs confer by designing automated compliance solutions with QuestaWeb’s advanced, web-native technology.
A gifted speaker and writer, Eric has served as a panel moderator, webinar leader, panelist, presenter and blog contributor on numerous occasions. He holds a B.S. in financial management and an M.B.A. from Clemson University.
