WASHINGTON — The National Association of Manufacturers named three new hires to its government relations and policy team, including the addition of Jordan Stoick as vice president of government relations.

Led by Senior Vice President Aric Newhouse, who has received national recognition for his leadership and influence in Washington, the NAM’s government relations and policy divisions are coming off a highly impactful 2017, which included a leading role in shaping the recently enacted tax reform legislation and the reform or repeal of numerous federal regulations that were impeding business success.

Representing some of the top policy and government relations professionals in the country, these new hires will expand the NAM’s reach and effectiveness in Washington to deliver even more results for the more than 12 million men and women who make things in the United States.

“The hiring of Jordan Stoick to head our government relations team is a huge coup for manufacturers. As a respected veteran of Capitol Hill and the current administration, Jordan will further enhance our lobbying might and will lead the NAM’s government relations strategy so we can deliver even more results for manufacturers and manufacturing workers,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “With Jordan on board, coupled with the additions of Patrick Hedren and Laura Berkey-Ames, the NAM is adding even more firepower to a government relations and policy team that delivered consistent and impressive results for our members in 2017. Their impressive resumes and diverse sets of experiences make them exceptionally well qualified to help manufacturers seize this moment while navigating the often complicated Washington, D.C., landscape.”

New hires include the following:

Jordan Stoick joins the NAM as vice president of government relations.

Patrick Hedren joins the NAM as vice president of labor, legal and regulatory policy.

Laura Berkey-Ames joins the NAM as director of energy and resources policy.

“From infrastructure investment to workforce development, additional regulatory reforms to expanded trade opportunities, manufacturers have a clear agenda for the year ahead, and Jordan, Patrick and Laura will be among the key players making that agenda a reality,” added Newhouse.

Following last September’s announcement of six new hires and promotions, the NAM earlier this month rolled out a second wave of new hires to its communications and advocacy divisions as part of its ambitious plan to expand the organization’s reach and effectiveness.
