Veteran Capitol Hill professional Ivette Rivera to head NADA legislative office

NADA president Peter Welch just announced that the association has filled the important position of vice president of legislative affairs with longtime Washington government relations professional and former NADA executive Ivette Rivera.

Stepping into the shoes of her former boss, David Regan, who successfully headed NADAs legislative office for many years, Ms. Rivera was a key player herself in the formulation and execution of the national new car dealer government relations agenda in Washington.

Most recently, she was in the staff leadership of the Bikes Belong Coalition, handling the Washington centered strategic planning for the advocacy group. She additionally comes to the job with a masters degree in political science from Johns Hopkins University.

In reporting the rehiring of Ms. Rivera at NADA to the top spot for government affairs to WANADA and the other dealer association affiliates of the Automotive Trade Associations, Mr. Welch said Ms. Rivera emerged as a clear choice to head up our legislative team, which is housed in its own offices on Capitol Hill.

WANADA senior staff, too, headquartered in Washington in close proximity to NADA Capitol Hill operations has enjoyed the best of working relationships with Ms. Rivera over the years and wish her all the best in her new position heading up NADAs legislative affairs.
