jamesAmerican Chamber of Commerce Estonia (AmCham) Interviews James Samuel York, the Director of U.S. Business at Enterprise Estonia


Q: James, you are the new Director of US Business & Innovation at Enterprise Estonia based in New York. Tell us a bit more about yourself and the previous experience that has led you to this position.

A: You could say it’s been a long and winding road to get here, but looking back I can see that all my prior experiences have offered me a unique perspective and mix of skills that I’m so happy I can now share with everyone in the Estonian business environment who is looking at entering or expanding in the U.S. market. I began my career in New York following university as a licensed stockbroker, working on the 40th floor of the World Financial Center. I then moved into real estate, first working in residential brokerage selling and renting luxury properties in one of the world’s most iconic cities, and then commercial property management where I had the privilege and responsibility of managing one of the highest-profile public real estate portfolios in North America’s largest public transportation system. Nearly a decade ago I moved from New York City to Tallinn with my wife, who is Estonian herself, and went to work for what was then my first start-up – From there it’s been an exciting journey working with startup and innovation companies across a myriad of sectors and exploring the strengths and challenges of small businesses, always with an eye towards trying to bring the best of each world to the other.

Most recently I had been running a boutique strategic marketing consultancy and agency in New York, devoting more and more of my professional (and personal) focus towards helping Estonian companies make the jump to this market.

Accepting this role with Enterprise Estonia allows me the opportunity to now focus on that 100% of the time, and I love that I’m able to be of service to both my adopted and native homes in this way.

On the proposal of Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Reinsalu (Isamaa), the Cabinet on August 1, approved objectives for how to improve the accessibility of consular services for Estonians living abroad, according to a ministry press release.
