One such American is our founder and CEO, Greg Dewald. Greg is one who, during his career, has had many opportunities to work and live abroad. As multi-award winning Internet entrepreneur from the States, Greg is more than a distant observer of the challenges and opportunities of living abroad, he lives it and experiences it first hand.
For we expatriates living abroad there is a dual challenge and responsibility - to fully embrace the exciting opportunities our new foreign home offers and at the same time, as long as we are U.S. citizens, to remain compliant with United States tax laws. All of us are required to file tax returns in the States each year even while living abroad.
For years I've had the good fortune to travel abroad - mostly for business and sometimes for pleasure. I've been able to see many countries and many cultures and the common thread through every adventure abroad is I wanted to do more - to see more. The world is endlessly fascinating and, for me, it is a gift every time I have the opportunity to travel and/or live abroad. I've been fortunate in business and have been honored many times for having an acumen that was recognized and lauded by my peers. As CEO of my businesses I've been honored with commendations from United States Senators and Congressmen. I know business and I've been able to do it well.
