IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® announces the appointment of Chris Mitchell as its new vice president of global government relations. Mitchell starts his new position today, March 5, 2018, and will be based in IPC’s Washington, D.C. office.

In this new role, Mitchell will be responsible for development and implementation of the organization’s global advocacy efforts and public policy agenda with a focus on electronics industry business improvement; environment, health and safety; and defense initiatives. He will work closely with IPC’s Government Relations Steering Committee, and IPC Washington, D.C. office staff, to represent IPC and the electronics industry before key governmental policymakers globally and to identify issues and other opportunities where IPC can demonstrate its global leadership in government relations and public policy.

Mitchell was most recently a director at Prime Policy Group, a leading Washington, D.C. government relations firm, where he represented U.S. and international interests before Congress and the Executive Branch. Previously, Mitchell spent more than eight years working for members of Congress from the State of California for whom he handled technology, trade, and transportation issues. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from The George Washington University and a Master’s degree in philosophy from San Jose State University and currently serves on the board of directors for Partners Global and the Fabretto Children’s Foundation.

Chris’s expertise in providing strategic council and advising members of Congress on technology and trade issues has made him a trusted advocate not only in Washington D.C. but in the halls of government across the globe,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “His entrepreneurial approach to championing past advocacy efforts will set IPC’s own advocacy efforts apart from other organizations while advancing IPC’s members and industry’s causes. We look forward to welcoming Chris to IPC.”
