Before moving to Utah in September 2006 to help establish the World Trade Center Utah, Lew Cramer served as a managing director of Summit Ventures International, which is a Washington, D.C.-based strategic business consulting firm, focusing on international business development, major project financing and advocacy issues for both domestic and global companies.

Previously, Mr. Cramer served as the director general of the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, leading the U.S. Government's commercial staff of 1,400 employees at more than 120 embassies overseas and in 65 offices throughout the United States.
