From 1999 to 2003 Mr. Baker served as Midwest Director for the U.S. Global Trade & Technology Network (GTN), a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) program. During that time, Mr. Baker was responsible for more than 40 trade deals valued at about $28.5 million between Midwest companies and companies throughout the emerging market world.

Prior to GTN, Mr. Baker consulted for PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Ogilvy Worldwide. From 1991 to 1997, Mr. Baker served USAID as a Foreign Service Officer in Asia, the Near East and Africa. As USAID's Chief Economist for Asia and the Near East, he advised Former Vice President Gore on Egypt's economic policy reform process, and received personal commendation from Mr. Gore.

From 1989 to 1991, Mr. Baker served as a Faculty Member at the University of Maryland in their College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and conducted research on food security as well as agricultural higher education in a number of emerging market countries.

He served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines from 1985 to 1987, working with small businesses in Mabini, Bohol. In a front-page August 2, 1987 Washington Post article, Keith Richburg wrote that "Baker was a rarity. He had one of the few Peace Corps development projects here that seemed clearly to succeed in a big way."

Mr. Baker has a M.A.L.D. degree in International Finance from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. He has won seven piano competitions. At the age of 16, he won the Chicago Symphony Youth Audition, and performed eight times as a soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Orchestra Hall.
