Government Work

In 1970, the Governor of Maryland, Gov. Marvin Mandel asked Philip Kapneck to serve as a "Special Advisor on Student Affairs to the Governor's Office" to be a communicator between students and the Governor's Office. Kapneck accepted, to create a good line of communication between the students and the State.

As Special Advisor on Student Affairs, Kapneck worked with the College Board of Regents, Dr. Charles Bishop, the new University Chancellor and Fred Spiegler, assistant administrative officer under Secretary of State Blair Lee, in the Office of Education.

In 1971, Philip Kapneck was honored by University of Maryland Student Government Association, the first non-University of Maryland student in 12 years to be named its Man of the Year.[4]

In August 1973, Governor Mandel was aware of overseas business and industry wanting to come to the USA to set up their operations. Knowing that Philip Kapneck had an excellent business background and was multi-lingual, Governor Mandel appointed Kapneck director of the state of Maryland's European development office in Brussels, Belgium. Subsequently, Kapneck was appointed Maryland Trade Ambassador.[5][6]

The Brussels office covered Europe and Kapneck laid the groundwork to attract business and industry to Maryland. When the program was going well, the Maryland Secretary of Business and Economic Development appointed Kapneck to continue the same format in Asia and the South Pacific.[6]

The Federal government asked Kapneck to work with the US Embassy in a program called "Invest in the USA," modeled on the format used for the State of Maryland.[3]

Ambassador Kapneck's work was honored with two Governor citations and each administration since Governor Mandel has appointed Philip Kapneck as the State's Trade Ambassador.[1]

Trade Ambassador Kapneck attends many business meetings and seminars each year, and is often invited to speak at these seminars.

Philip Kapneck retired as Maryland Trade Ambassador after 40 years of service in 2015.
