WASHINGTON—Sean Moore has been named the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association's director of government affairs, and has been tasked with developing a guiding strategy for the government affairs program.
He is filling a position previously held by Courtney Titus Brooks, who left the USTMA earlier this year to become manager, federal government relations for the National Federation of Independent Business.
"Sean is an accomplished leader with extensive experience running successful industry government affairs programs and will be a valuable asset to our strong USTMA team," Anne Forristall Luke, USTMA president and CEO, said in a statement. "Under Sean's direction, the USTMA will continue to advocate for improved tire safety performance, champion the industry's domestic economic contributions, promote policies to develop and incentivize scrap tire markets, and lead efforts to enact unsafe used tire legislation."
Moore joins USTMA with more than a decade of experience directing trade association government affairs programs. Most recently, he was director of state and local government affairs for the Consumer Healthcare Products Association. In that role, he was responsible for implementing the association's advocacy agenda nationwide.
Moore also worked for the Consumer Specialty Products Association (now known as the Household and Commercial Products Association), where he directed government affairs strategy in 24 states and oversaw the association's Industrial and Automotive Products Division and its automotive affiliate.
