John W.H. Denton AO - currently Chief Executive Officer of Australian law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth - has today been elected as the next Secretary-General of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).

Mr Denton is a legal expert and adviser on global policy, international trade and investment and infrastructure. His advice is sought by Australia's most prominent corporations and by governments and international bodies alike.
Mr Denton - who was unanimously elected today by ICC's World Council following an extensive search process - will succeed outgoing ICC Secretary General John Danilovich upon stepping down from his current role at Corrs Chambers Westgarth. Mr Denton previously served on ICC's Executive Board and in 2016 became the first Australian to hold the position of First Vice-Chair of the Paris-based organization.
ICC Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal said, "We are delighted to have secured John Denton as ICC's next Secretary General. John will bring to the role a wealth of experience from the world of business, law and international diplomacy. His engagement as ICC's First Vice-Chair over the last 18 months makes him uniquely placed to build on the recent achievements of the organization. I also take this opportunity to thank John Danilovich for providing exemplary leadership to our organization over the past several years."
Commenting on his election, Mr Denton added, "I'm deeply honoured to have been elected as Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce. At a time when the dual threat of populism and protectionism still loom large, it's more vital than ever for business to have a seat at the table in global policymaking. ICC has a unique role to play in ensuring the views and experience of the global private sector are taken into account in key global forums - from the United Nations to the G20. I look forward to working with ICC's global network in over 100 countries to do just that."
