WASHINGTON, D.C. – In an effort to continue advancing policies that help businesses grow our economy and foster innovation, the Chamber today announced that John Drake has been promoted to Vice President of Transportation, Infrastructure and Supply Chain Policy. This new role combines two important issue areas that are priorities for the business community, and Drake will lead the Chamber’s advocacy on transportation, infrastructure, and supply chain issues before Congress, the administration, and other critical stakeholders.

“Supply chain challenges as well as transportation and infrastructure investment are important issues for the business community. John Drake has years of experience in transportation policy and will combine that knowledge with his current supply chain and customs-related portfolio to expand upon our already successful work advocating for our members,” said Marty Durbin, Senior Vice President for Policy, U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

In addition, the Chamber announced a new Cyber, Space, and National Security Policy Division under the continued leadership of Senior Vice President Christopher D. Roberti. Formerly the Cyber, Intelligence, and Supply Chain Security Division, the new division now includes the Chamber’s Defense and Aerospace Council (DAC) and will provide enhanced advocacy in:

  • Cybersecurity  
  • Intelligence  
  • Procurement, Acquisition, and Innovation  
  • Space and Aerospace  
  • Supply Chain Security

The Chamber is executing on a strategic plan of action to ensure that the Chamber’s advocacy, influence, and impact strengthen in the years ahead. The Chamber has remained powerful for over 110 years because—like our members—we are constantly innovating, improving, and investing for the future.
