ECS' Transfer Pricing Network:
Bruce Malashevich, President and Chief Executive Officer, joined Economic Consulting Services in 1976 after a period of U.S. Government service at the State Department and subsequently at the Treasury Department. Mr. Malashevich became Vice President of ECS in 1978, and President and Chief Executive Officer in 1988.
Mr. Malashevich works closely on an ongoing basis with clients in the metals, minerals, agricultural, telecommunications and electronics product areas. He has prepared numerous technical studies and has testified often as an expert before the International Trade Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Commerce, federal courts and other U.S. Government agencies on the impact of changes in competitive conditions on a wide variety of manufacturing industries. In this capacity, his attention has been focused principally on market definition, price behavior, and conditions of competition. His corporate clients have included such firms as AT&T, Toyota Motor Company, Motorola, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Occidental Chemical Company, Mobil, Teijin, Ltd., SKF Industries, Inc., NSK, Ltd., Nippon Steel, British Steel (now Corus), Usinor (now Arcelor) and most of the world's other major steel companies.
Mr. Malashevich also has directed various studies in the service sector. One such study for an investment house concerned historical trends and prospects for various categories of financial institutions in the United States. He pioneered in the study of international trade in services, by assuming key responsibilities for a series of research contracts with agencies of the U.S. Government. The resulting report, which spans eighteen service sectors, identifies and evaluates the non-tariff measures that effectively prevent or inhibit the growth of U.S. service industries internationally and recommends certain policy guidelines for consideration by the U.S. Government in its ongoing efforts to reduce or eliminate obstacles to the further expansion of international commerce in services.
Mr. Malashevich received his B.A. cum laude from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and his M.A. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. At both institutions he specialized in international economics, politics, and Soviet area studies. Mr. Malashevich is proficient in the Russian language. He is listed in Who's Who in the East, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Finance & Industry, and Who's Who in the World. Beginning in 1996, he has been continually appointed to the U.S. Roster of Experts for service on dispute settlement panels formed under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He has written and spoken widely regarding the application of antidumping/countervailing duty and other trade law in the United States, the EU and other jurisdictions.
