He leads the largest international affairs team of any U.S. business association, representing the Chamber and its members before the U.S. government, foreign governments, and international business organizations. During his tenure as head of the international program, the Chamber has greatly expanded its global footprint with representatives in Beijing, Brasília, Tel Aviv, Istanbul, and Mexico City.

Brilliant’s responsibilities extend to management oversight of 14 bilateral business councils in countries as diverse as Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Korea, Colombia, Cuba, and the U.K. He has pioneered new high-level Chamber business strategic dialogues with business and government leaders in Mexico, China and Saudi Arabia.
