Roman Sheremeta Assumes the Role as Chairman of the Ukrainian American House
Sacramento, California, Kyiv, Ukraine, November 22, 2023 – The Ukrainian American House (UA House) is pleased to announce the appointment of Roman Sheremeta, Ph.D. as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors, effective November 22, 2023. With this transition, Sheremeta steps into a pivotal role to lead and further the mission of the Ukrainian American House to provide a platform for Ukrainian-American cooperation and to serve the local and international communities.
"Support for Ukraine remains critical as democracy itself is being attacked, so I am honored to assume the role of Chairman at the Ukrainian American House," said Roman Sheremeta. "I have seen the impact of the war firsthand. I have lived among injured civilians, have family members serving to defend Ukraine’s freedom and I have seen the ruined cities across Ukraine. But I have also been a part of the conversations to rebuild Ukraine. Ukrainians are brave and resilient people, but they need our help, ongoing humanitarian aid and investments. I look forward to working closely with the Ukrainian American House board, staff, and the community to advance our collective mission."
Bringing a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to Ukraine, Sheremeta is poised to guide the Ukrainian American House through its next phase of growth and development. He is an internationally recognized economist, the Founding Rector of American University Kyiv and an associate professor at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Purdue.
Over the last two years, Sheremeta has spearheaded UA House’s critical aid projects for Ukraine and supported with the strategic vision of the organization throughout the war. Sheremeta succeeds Vlad Skots, who served admirably, steering the organization with dedication and vision during his tenure.
Under Sheremeta's leadership, the Ukrainian American House aims to expand its reach and impact through innovative programs, advocacy, and community collaborations to raise awareness and bring aid to Ukraine, as well as serve Ukrainian refugees who have resettled in California. His strategic vision will guide the organization in enhancing its offerings, furthering education initiatives, and strengthening ties within the Ukrainian-American community and beyond.
The board and staff of the Ukrainian American House extend their warmest welcome to Roman Sheremeta and look forward to leveraging his expertise to advance the organization's mission.
