ARLINGTON, Texas – The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association has bolstered its government advocacy with the addition of Christina Perez as director of government affairs.
Perez joins vice president of government affairs Brett Scott in advancing the association’s engagement with federal legislators and regulators. She will also be heavily involved in NIADA’s political action committee (NIADA-PAC).
“NIADA continues to expand our footprint in Washington D.C. by bringing on top talent that will ensure NIADA is the authoritative voice for the used car industry,” Scott said.
“Christina brings a wealth of knowledge in both PACs and government affairs, and her experience will be an excellent addition to our team.”
Perez, who is based in Washington, comes to NIADA with experience on Capitol Hill, having served as a staff assistant for Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) and interned for Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.).
She also has extensive experience in government affairs, public affairs and project management with the Commercial Real Estate Finance Council, Outdoor Industry Association, Cruise Lines International Association, Asian American Hotel Owners Association and UPS.
“I am very excited to be joining NIADA’s growing government affairs practice,” Perez said. “I look forward to representing the voice of the used car industry in Washington D.C.”
Perez is an active member of Women in Government Relations, serving as co-chair of the PACs, Politics and Grassroots task force and a member of the Personal and Professional Development Committee.
She holds a B.A. in political science from Davidson College, an M.A. in communication from John Hopkins University and a certificate in PAC and grassroots management from the Public Affairs Council.
