Meet Chris Mitchell, one of our newest I-Connect007 columnists! In his columns, Mitchell and the IPC Government Relations Team provide news and views on government policies that affect the electronics industry and its supply chain.
Chris Mitchell is vice president for global government affairs at IPC—Association Connecting Electronics Industries—where he is 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. Mitchell works closely with members of IPC’s Government Relations Steering Committees and with IPC professional staff in Washington, Brussels, and Beijing, representing IPC and the electronics industry before policymakers and identifying opportunities for IPC to demonstrate its leadership in government relations and public policy.
Previously, Mitchell was a director at Prime Policy Group—a leading Washington, D.C., government relations firm—where he represented both U.S. and international interests before Congress and the Executive Branch. Before that, he spent more than eight years working for members of Congress from the State of California for whom he handled technology, trade, and transportation issues. Mitchell holds a bachelor’s degree from The George Washington University and a master’s degree in philosophy from San Jose State University.
