BETHESDA, Md. — The Auto Care Association (ACA) has hired Jennifer Keaton as its new director of government affairs.
Keaton will work within a four-person department advocating on behalf of the automotive aftermarket with federal and state legislators, as well as relevant regulatory agencies.
Keaton previously was vice president of congressional affairs at the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. For 10 years, Keaton worked on Capitol Hill as legislative director for Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (Ohio), senior legislative assistant for Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), and legislative aide for Rep. Ron Klink (Pa.).
"Her years of hands-on Hill experience will be invaluable to our industry as we face increased regulations and restrictions on vehicle data access. She is a quick study and has already proven to be a great asset to our team," ACA President and CEO Bill Hanvey said.
