US ambassador on TTIP, Europe and the ‘roots of rage’

In our ‘Over A Beer’ video series this month, EURACTIV’s Brian Maguire chats with United States Ambassador to the European Union, Anthony Gardner.

No stranger to Europe, Ambassador Gardner attended school in Rome while his father served as US Ambassador to Italy. He interned at the European Commission’s DG for competition policy and later served as a Senior Associate at international law firms in London, Paris, New York, and Brussels.

Prior to assuming his current position, Ambassador Gardner was Managing Director for six years at Palamon Capital Partners, a private equity firm based in London.

As US Ambassador to the European Union, Anthony Gardner has been at the heart of the controversial TTIP negotiation aimed at setting up a transatlantic trade area.
