Aric Newhouse: 40 Under 40

The young lobbyists with the most influence in Washington

Name: Aric Newhouse
Firm: National Association of Manufacturers
Age: 39

As NAM’s senior vice president for government relations and policy, Newhouse is leading the group’s charge to push for job growth in the industrial sector.

When he joined NAM in 2007, he brought with him connections and insight earned during more than a decade working in Congress, including as chief of staff to Ohio Republican senator George Voinovich. That experience has helped Newhouse secure victories, such as last year, when he successfully pushed for passage of the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill, which extended tax cuts for manufacturers.
