Craig Piercy Named to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee
Craig Piercy, managing principal of Federal Relations for Bose Public Affairs Group, has been named to the Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee (CINTAC). The Committee advises the U.S. Department of Commerce on policies related to U.S. civil nuclear exports trade negotiations. As a committee member, Piercy will serve as a representative of BPAG client The American Nuclear Society and other trade associations in the U.S. Civil Nuclear Sector.
“I’m proud to be a part of this committee, which is providing advice to the administration on policies for expanding U.S. civil nuclear exports. A robust nuclear export sector is a critical component to continued U.S. influence in international safety and nonproliferation norms,” said Piercy.
Piercy heads the Washington D.C. office of Bose Public Affairs Group. His government relations practice focuses on nuclear energy, science and technology where he helps his clients navigate the federal policymaking landscape on Capitol Hill and the Executive Branch. Before entering private practice, Piercy served as assistant vice president of federal affairs at Wayne State University in Michigan. His roots, however, are in federal level politics. Piercy was chief of staff to United States Congressman Joe Knollenberg (R-MI), where he coordinated the day-to-day operations of the D.C. and district congressional offices, and acted as the principal staff liaison to the House Appropriations Committee. In this role, Piercy worked with the House Leadership, members and staff to implement the Congressman’s legislative agenda, including a broad effort to accelerate cleanup of the U.S. Department of Energy’s nuclear sites and preserving U.S. Department of Energy funding for nuclear energy research and development.
