Tiffany Moore has been named vice president of congressional affairs for The Consumer Technology Association, formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Association.
Moore will lead CTA’s lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill on issues including patent litigation reform, strategic immigration reform and trade. She will also oversee CTA’s political action committee, CTAPAC.
“When we thought of our ideal candidate for this position, Tiffany was the first person who came to mind,” said CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. “Her passion, experience, knowledge, dedication and skill in executing bipartisan legislative strategies will provide great value to our industry as we continue to pursue pro-innovation public policies.”
Moore most recently worked for five years as a consultant for boutique government relations firm TwinLogic Strategies, where she was responsible for designing and executing political strategies for corporate and trade association clients on competitiveness, trade, tax and technology issues. CTA is one of the consultancy’s clients, and Moore has worked in that capacity for the association for more than five years.
In 2010, Moore launched government relations and social media consulting firm Moore Consulting, and prior to that she had served as senior legislative advisor in the Legislative and Government Affairs Practice Group at Venable LLP and as the assistant U.S. trade representative for intergovernmental affairs and public liaison in the office of the United States Trade Representative. Prior to USTR, Moore helped direct the Kellogg’s Co.’s legislative policy efforts. She began her legislative career working in a variety of roles in the office of U.S. Representative Fred Upton (R-MI), where she served as legislative director from 2000–2002.
