Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers has announced Rachel Jones as its new Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy. Jones currently serves as the NAM’s Senior Director of Energy and Resources Policy.
“This is a well-deserved promotion for Rachel, and I know she will ensure we do not miss a beat,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Her relentless drive has made her a powerful advocate for our members and a respected voice on the Hill and in the Administration on issues ranging from environmental policy to energy production to infrastructure and regulatory issues. Rachel brings a limitless passion to all her endeavors, and we know this will be no exception.”
Current Vice President Ross Eisenberg has been named Vice President of Federal Affairs at the American Chemistry Council.
“It is safe to say that thanks to the work of Ross Eisenberg, manufacturers in America today are operating with more environmental regulatory certainty while also more clearly demonstrating their contributions to responsible environmental stewardship.”
Before joining the NAM, Jones was the environment and energy counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, where she advised the Committee on EPA, Department of Energy, Department of the Interior, FERC, NASA, NOAA and the White House Office of Science and Technology activities. She served as a legal fellow for the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and as executive student notes and comments editor for the Energy Law Journal.
