The Columbia World Affairs Council has re-elected Nexsen Pruet member Bob Coble as its Chair.
“The Columbia Region’s economy is part of the global economy and the World Affairs Council helps ensure that South Carolina is part of that economy. The Council is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that serves as the bridge between the Columbia community and our global partners.” Coble said.
Coble served as Mayor of Columbia for 20 years before retiring in 2010. His law practice is now focused on representing business interests before federal, state and local policy makers.
As Mayor of Columbia, Coble established Sister City relationships with Kaiserslautern, Germany; Cluj-Napoca, Romania; Plovdiv, Bulgaria; Chelyabinsk, Russia; and Yibin, China. Coble led delegations from Columbia to visit those cities.
