The Wind Coalition hires Jeff Clark as executive director

The Wind Coalition has announced the hiring of veteran government affairs professional Jeff Clark as its new executive director.

Clark most recently served as the Vice President of Governmental Affairs for TechAmerica. He previously worked as the executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business-Texas, as governmental affairs manager at the Texas Association of Business, as chief of staff for a member of the Texas House, and as a governmental relations employee for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.

Since October, 2006, Clark has managed the policy and advocacy efforts of TechAmerica in the southern U.S. Most recently, that region included 13 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah. He has also managed Tech America's state lobbying efforts on energy infrastructure and grid modernization issues. His work in the Texas public policy arena dates back to November 1990, when he started in the Texas Capitol as a legislative aide.

The Wind Coalition is a regional partner of the American Wind Energy Association and is comprised of 33 member companies, many of which specialize in the development of wind projects and the manufacturing of wind turbine components. The coalition is active in eight south central states: Texas, Arkansas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
