Amy’s interest in export began with a Bachelors degree in International Relations and Economics from the University of Delaware and a Master’s degree from Georgetown University. While attending Georgetown’s Public Policy program, Amy specialized in Export Promotion Policy. In the early part of her career, Amy worked in Melbourne, Australia as an Export Advisor to the State Government of Victoria. During that time, she assisted small and medium sized Australian companies to identify export sales opportunities in overseas markets.
In 1991, Amy returned to the US, founded ATC International (originally called Australian Trading Company) and began assisting Australian business with hands-on development of export sales into the American marketplace. Originally, ATC provided research, sales and market support. During this time, Amy met with buyers throughout the US and experienced first-hand how important it is to have a dependable US-base to achieve successful, on-going sales. In 1996, Amy opened ATC’s first warehouse. Today ATC operates two warehouse facilities located on both coasts, with the majority of business occurring through ATC’s Los Angeles facility.
ATC has clients from many parts of the world including Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Mexico, France, Brazil, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and India. Amy notes that one of the keys to ATC’s success in working with businesses from other countries is providing regular and reliable communication.
When not focused on ATC, Amy helps to support the Australian Koala Foundation as a US Director and she volunteers for Hope and a Home in her neighborhood. Amy also enjoys travelling and exploring the great outdoors with her husband, Rick Haeuber, who works for the US Environmental Protection Agency. They live in Washington, DC with their dog, Dottie.
