John Derrick, Vice President, joined Economic Consulting Services in 1992. Mr. Derrick’s primary area of expertise is in antidumping proceedings in U.S. and foreign jurisdictions. Mr. Derrick also specializes in the development of information technology applications for regulatory compliance and business decision-making systems.
Mr. Derrick has worked extensively in all aspects of the investigations and administrative reviews conducted by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“DOC”). He has worked closely with companies and their counsel to prepare petitions, sales and cost responses, critical analyses, and testimony in addition to successfully completing numerous verifications conducted by the DOC. In this area, Mr. Derrick has participated in numerous market and non-market economy cases covering products such as stainless steel, carbon steel, antifriction bearings, tapered roller bearings, fresh cut flowers, persulfates, steel pipe, and bicycles. Mr. Derrick has also participated in antidumping investigations conducted by the trade authorities in Singapore and Brazil.
Mr. Derrick has developed guideline pricing and margin monitoring programs individually tailored to meet the needs of companies currently involved in U.S. antidumping proceedings and for companies facing potential antidumping constraints in the future. The guideline pricing programs provide a price floor for the company’s sales force for each subject product sold in the U.S. market or in the comparable market. The margin monitoring programs provide an assessment of the success of pricing steps taken by the company. Moreover, the reports generated in the margin monitoring phase identify the key factors driving the company’s antidumping duty liability. Together with the client, measures to control these key factors are developed and implemented, resulting in significant financial savings to the client, while preserving access to the U.S. market.
Mr. Derrick received his B.S. in economics from the Pennsylvania State University and his M.B.A. with concentrations in finance and strategic management from the University of Maryland.
