A message from BABC OC President

Welcome to the British American Business Council of Orange County. We’re in a time of incredible change and uncertainty on both sides of the Atlantic – with the extremely complex task of exiting the European Union preoccupying politicians, civil servants, businesses and individual citizens across the United Kingdom, and the new administration here in the United States continuing to make its mark.

The relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States has arguably never been so important, and the role of the BABC chapters across the United States play a key role in promoting business, cultural and social ties between these two great nations. Here in Orange County we have a thriving business community, creating innovation across many industry sectors – including a number of British brands which have substantial presence in the local community, as well as many US companies with ties to the United Kingdom.

Under the stewardship of our new Executive Director, supported by an active and engaged Board of Directors, we are focused on strengthening relationships for businesses, professionals and on a social level across our membership base and amongst the broader community.

We have a diverse calendar of events throughout the year, and we look forward to playing a role in fostering further links between the local Orange County community and the United Kingdom.


On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Justin Hastings

President, BABC Orange County
