The Steel Manufacturers Association (SMA) has named Brandon Farris as vice president of government affairs.

SMA said Farris will oversee legislative and regulatory affairs, lead the association’s public policy agenda, and manage strategic relationships. He will report to Philip K. Bell, SMA president.

“Brandon Farris has the experience we need in a government affairs executive, including an impressive record of advancing initiatives through grassroots, grasstops and coalition-building techniques,” Bell said in a statement on Monday.

Farris has over two decades of experience. Before joining SMA he was the vice president of domestic policy at the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). He was named by The Hill as a top lobbyist in 2023.
