Reading time ( words)

IPC announces the addition of Jeffrey Goldberg as director of North American government relations to its staff at IPC’s offices in Washington, D.C. In this role, Goldberg will help lead IPC’s federal advocacy work in collaboration with IPC’s Government Relations Committee and IPC’s Vice President of Global Government Relations Chris Mitchell. He will be charged with implementing an ambitious North American policy agenda at a time of increased interest among policymakers in the electronics supply chain.

“With a background in national defense, aerospace and trade policy, and regulatory compliance, Jeff brings the talent and expertise needed to foster and maintain relationships with our elected officials, educating them on important policy issues in the electronics manufacturing industry,” said Mitchell. “Jeff has developed an outstanding portfolio of policy initiatives in diverse areas and his expertise bridges the gap between solid high-tech industry experience and high-level policy knowledge. He is an impressive addition to IPC’s government relations team, and we’re excited to have him as part of IPC’s advocacy team.”                                                                        

During his career, Goldberg has provided strategic legislative, political and business advice and solutions to corporations, associations and government entities, including the National Defense Industrial Association, Rolls-Royce, Raytheon, Aerospace Industries Association, and U.S. Departments of Commerce and Defense.  

“IPC is an important voice for the electronics manufacturing industry, and I’m thrilled to be part of the team,” said Goldberg. “My goal is to further enhance IPC’s outreach initiatives in Washington and raise awareness about the industry and its priority policy issues. I look forward to working with Chris, members of IPC’s Government Relations Committee and others on the IPC team in support of sound manufacturing policies that spur economic growth for the electronics industry.”         

Goldberg has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Virginia, a Master of International Affairs degree from Penn State University and completed the Global Business and Politics Executive Education Program at the Yale School of Management.
