WASHINGTON, D.C., - Brian Raymond, a technology policy expert with more than 15 years of experience in government and the private sector, has joined the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) as director, technology and domestic economic policy. Raymond will work with NAM members, the Administration and Congress to shape and advance pro-manufacturing positions on technology policy issues ranging from patent reform, privacy issues and cyber/data security to net neutrality, R&D funding and intellectual property protection. "Brian's extensive experience and first-hand knowledge of the technology policy issues important to our industry will enable the NAM to sharpen and increase our advocacy on critical technology issues on behalf of our member companies," said NAM Executive Vice President and incoming President Jay Timmons. "Innovation has long helped manufacturing in the United States maintain its global leadership. Brian will be pivotal in the NAM's continuing efforts to make the United States the best country in the world to innovate and perform the bulk of a company's global research and development, as outlined in our 'Manufacturing Strategy for Jobs and a Competitive America'." Raymond spent more than eight years in IBM's Washington office as part of the company's government relations team, where he led numerous legislative campaigns on issues important to one of the world's largest information technology companies. He left IBM to launch the government affairs office of NetApp Corporation, which is headquartered in Silicon Valley and one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the United States. He began his career at TechAmerica working on domestic policy issues. Raymond was most recently the deputy chief of staff for U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA), where he was responsible for technology and telecommunications issues. The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states.
