“I could not be more thrilled to share that NAW has hired Brian Wild as our new Chief Government Relations Officer,” said NAW CEO Eric Hoplin. “Brian will bring extensive experience from congressional leadership offices, the White House, and the business world to NAW. As Jade retires this summer, Brian is without a doubt the best person to lead this next chapter at the helm of our incredible Government Relations team.”

Wild joins NAW from Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, where he worked as Policy Director. In that role, he advised Fortune 500 companies, trade associations and nonprofits before Congress and the White House on “a wide range of issues,” NAW said.

“I am excited to be joining the fantastic team at NAW as we continue to secure victories and serve as the voice for the wholesale distribution industry here in Washington,” said Wild. “I look forward to meeting and working with the NAW membership, and I wish a happy and well-deserved retirement to Jade West after her decades of service to this vital industry.”
