NBWA appoints govt. affairs V.P.

National Beer Wholesalers Association president Ron Sarasin announced the appointment of David Rehr as vice president, government affairs, replacing Jack Lewis who moved on to pursue other interests.

Rehr previously served as director for Federal Government Relations, House of Representatives, for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). The NFIB is the nation's largest advocacy group, with over 500,000 members.

While with NFIB, Rehr was responsible for establishing and implementing legislative strategy to impact issues facing small business owners. These included the repeal of Section 89 of the Internal Revenue Code, opposition to mandated parental and medical leave, support for fiscal reforms to reduce federal spending, and ensuring the continued deductibility of health insurance for the self-employed.

Before joining NFIB over four years ago, Rehr served as executive assistant to Congressman Vin Weber (R-MN), and was on the professional staff of the House Small Business Committee. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in economics from George Mason. Rehr has already earned an M.A. in economics from George Mason, and a B.S. in business administration and economics from St. John's University.

"We are fortunate to have someone of David's caliber," Sarasin explained. "His background and experience make him ideally suited to steering NBWA's government affairs in a manner that will best represent wholesaler interests."
