Louise Kern

Managing Director
Advocate Health Care

With over twenty years of international experience, Louise M. Kern began working in the business information industry in 1996. In 1998 she moved to Vienna, Austria as the head of European Operations for a top US business information company. Ms. Kern returned to her native Chicago in 2000 to head the International Division of the same company, expanding their coverage to include data on international companies. Seeing the surging need for high quality business information in the increasingly global economy, Ms. Kern founded Global Business Information Services, Inc. (GLOBIS) in 2003 to cater particularly to the growing number of small and medium sized enterprises expanding internationally.

Initially focusing exclusively on China business information, Globis forged partnerships with leading Chinese private and quasi-governmental credit reporting and market research enterprises, beating venerable international business information companies to win the US Commercial Service’s contract as its source for International Company Profile (ICP) reports on Chinese companies in the fall of 2004. In April 2005 Globis expanded its coverage to include information on businesses and individuals in over 200 countries.

Ms. Kern has lived in mainland China, Austria, Germany, and France. She speaks fluent Mandarin and German, and is conversant in French. She has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the University of Chicago and a graduate diploma from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Nanjing University campus. She is a Board Member of the International Trade Association of Greater Chicago, a member of the International Women Associates, the Chicago Sister Cities China Committee, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs China Roundtable, and the International Visitors Center of Chicago.
