People on the Move


People on the Move highlights the career advancements of high-level trailblazers working professionally in diverse areas of standardization, contributing every day to the strength and success of the U.S. standards and conformance community.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has appointed Stef Webb as its new managing vice president of government relations. Webb will lead the association’s government relations strategy to bolster the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers.

Prior to this role, Webb held leadership roles in government relations, policy, political fundraising, political affairs, communications, membership, finance, and operations. Most recently, she was the director of corporate affairs at Gopuff, a global consumer goods and food delivery company, where she helped to establish its federal affairs program, among other duties. She also served as director of federal government affairs at NAM member company Anheuser-Busch. Webb is an officer in the United States Navy Reserve.

“In this unpredictable and fast-changing political environment, it’s never been more important to have a government relations team that is steps ahead of where the policy opportunities and challenges could go,” said NAM executive vice president Erin Streeter. “With Stef helping to lead our team, we’ll build on our track record of preparing for tomorrow, anticipating future needs, and being a credible and trusted go-to voice and resource for manufacturers and our nation’s leaders.”

“Manufacturing is the backbone of the American economy and the foundation of business in America, impacting nearly every industry and person,” said Webb. “The NAM has built a reputation as the most trusted voice and resource for manufacturers in the United States, and I’m excited to join this team to create an even better environment for manufacturers to compete, to create more jobs, and to improve lives.”
