American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
11 West 42nd St., 13th Flr.
New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: November 24, 2010

People on the Move spotlights trailblazers in standardization, highlighting their latest achievements, advancements, and contributions to the standards community.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), an organizational member of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has named Stephen P. Jacobs as senior director for international business policy. His responsibilities will include overseeing the NAM's investment, international standards, and international intellectual property protection advocacy and assisting members in formulating approaches to solving trade or investment problems.

Mr. Jacobs joins the NAM after a three-decade career with the U.S. Department of Commerce's (DOC) International Trade Administration (ITA), where his most recent position was deputy assistant secretary for market access and compliance. He also served as the acting assistant secretary for market access and compliance in the Obama Administration, where he directed the DOC's efforts in opening foreign markets for U.S. exports and investment.

Among the highlights of Mr. Jacobs's career is his experience negotiating and implementing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He also played a key role in the current Doha Round of World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations and bilateral free trade agreements with Australia, Chile, Peru, Singapore, and others.

The NAM is an industrial trade association representing 11,000 manufacturing companies in all 50 states. The organization's mission is to be a powerful voice for the U.S. manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers create jobs. The NAM works toward sensible government policies that reduce the cost of production and tear down barriers to exports.
