The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) named Robert D. McArver Vice President of Policy and Government Relations.
McArver will be responsible for directing and implementing AHAM's legislative, regulatory, political, and grassroots programs. He will play a key role in advancing AHAM's positions on public policy issues.
Kevin Messner, who previously had this role, will serve as AHAM's Vice President, State Government Affairs, following his relocation to California, effective July 15, 2013.
"Rob has two decades of corporate and association experience, making him the right choice to lead the home appliance industry's government affairs efforts. His issue advocacy, legislative and regulatory competencies will help advance AHAM's mission of developing and implementing credible solutions for public policy," said Joseph M. McGuire, AHAM President.
Prior to joining AHAM, McArver was Vice President, Global Public Affairs for Celanese Corp., a chemical and specialty materials company, and prior to this, he directed the government relations efforts for the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association (SOCMA).
Rob holds a Juris Doctor from Washington University School of Law and earned his bachelor's degree in history from Duke University.
