Energy Policy Expert Ross Eisenberg Joins the NAM
Eisenberg’s Decade of Energy and Environmental Policy Experience Will Further NAM’s Advocacy for Pro-Manufacturing Policies
05/10/12 - Ross Eisenberg has joined the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) as vice president for energy and resources policy. Eisenberg will tackle environmental and energy issues that affect the manufacturing economy and our competitiveness, including energy production and use, environmental regulations and access to natural resources.
“Eisenberg joins the NAM at a critical time when manufacturers find it 20 percent more expensive to operate in the United States compared to our largest trading partners,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “NAM members will greatly benefit from Eisenberg’s pro-growth energy policy experience and expertise. As part of the NAM team, Eisenberg will advocate for a real ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy that manufacturers need to stay competitive.”
Eisenberg comes to the NAM from the US Chamber of Commerce where he served as counsel and committee executive for environment and energy. At the Chamber he was responsible for a variety of energy and manufacturing issues, including Environmental Protection Agency regulations, oil and gas exploration and development, energy efficiency and environmental permitting. Previously, Eisenberg worked as an attorney at the international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, where he represented large and small companies on a wide range of environmental and energy matters.
Eisenberg received his B.A. in English and Political Science from Emory University and a J.D. from Washington & Lee University School of Law.
