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 Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), a member and accredited standards developer of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has appointed Patrick Hughes as its vice president of operations and strategy. He will oversee NEMA’s technical operations and strategic planning.

Mr. Hughes previously served as NEMA’s senior director of government relations and strategic initiatives. In that role, he led the organization’s work in electric grid, electric vehicle, energy storage, Internet of Things, and cybersecurity policy advocacy. He joined NEMA as the director of the High-Performance Buildings Council. Prior to that, Mr. Hughes was a congressional aide and worked at the United Nations Foundation, advocating for energy efficiency and grid modernization.

"Patrick has accomplished a great deal in his time at NEMA – revitalizing the Strategic Initiatives program, launching an organization-wide strategic planning effort, and advocating for our members' interests on Capitol Hill as well as at the state and local levels," said Kevin J. Cosgriff, NEMA president and CEO. "Patrick is a forward-looking and strategic thinker who is skilled at reducing complicated technical issues to their essence and crafting clear action plans to deliver value to members. These skills will serve him well as he leads the standards development and technical work of the NEMA operations department now and into the future."
