We first became aware of Dilbar when, in 2006, our Managing Partner, Stephen Costanzo, then CEO of ExIm Partners, was elected to the board of directors for the Seattle Tashkent Sister City Association (STSCA). Dilbar, already a veteran board member, was a tireless worker on behalf of the STSCA, and was one of the people who made that organization so successful in its mission of cultural exchange between Seattle, Washington USA and Taskent, Uzbekistan, and indeed the USA and the USSR, as at the time the STSCA was formed, Uzbekistan was still part of the Soviet Union. Dilbar was gracious enough to take on the translation of the ExIm English website into the Uzbek language, which she accomplished for us with great skill and professionalism. Dilbar can be contacted via Linked In.
