House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) today announced that Chris Brown has been hired to be the Staff Director of the Subcommittee on Aviation.
Brown joins the Committee staff after serving nearly four years as Vice President for Legislative and Regulatory Policy with Airlines for America, where his responsibilities included outreach to key aviation stakeholders to advance the organization’s priorities. Brown also previously served for two years in the executive branch, as the Assistant Administrator and Deputy Assistant Administrator for Government and Industry Affairs at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Prior to his tenure at the FAA, Brown worked as counsel for the House Subcommittee on Aviation. Brown has also worked for the law firms of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld as an associate, and for Manatt, Phelps & Phillips as senior counsel, where he gained experience on a wide range of aviation issues. He received his undergraduate degree from Boston College and juris doctorate from The George Washington University Law School.
“Chris brings a wealth of experience and perspectives on aviation issues, from having worked in both the public and private sectors,” said Shuster. “His expertise will serve our Committee well as we develop an FAA reauthorization bill that helps ensure America’s competitiveness in aviation and prepares our aviation system for the future.”
