The National Marine Manufacturers Association has added Callie Hoyt and Clay Crabtree to its directors of federal government regulations. The association said the two new members will hit the ground running as the federal legislative season kicks into gear.
Hoyt comes to NMMA from the Motorcycle Industry Council where she was manager of federal affairs, directing the association’s federal advocacy efforts. Prior to joining MIC, she held positions at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America and the Trucking Alliance. A native of the Washington, D.C., area, Hoyt grew up riding personal watercraft and skiing on the Bohemia River in Maryland.
Prior to joining NMMA, Crabtree was policy director for the American Sportfishing Association, focusing on state and federal policies impacting freshwater issues. He also worked as a congressional liaison between members of congress and the Department of Health and Human Services. Crabtree also served as an aid for Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV). He’s a native of West Virginia and an avid angler.
“Callie and Clay both bring a depth of government relations experience — including previous advocacy work with outdoor recreation industry organizations — and will play critical roles in securing the marine industry’s priorities in Washington, D.C.,” Nicole Vasilaros, NMMA senior vice president of government relations and legal affairs, said in a statement.
