BIA names Juvet its interim president
Longtime lobbyist for organization to take helm as search for permanent chief begins
Dave Juvet, for over 20 years a lobbyist for the Business & Industry Association of New Hampshire, has been named the interim president of the organization, in the wake of the departure of the former president, Jim Roche.
Juvet, senior vice president of public policy, has been with BIA, since April 2000. He has long guided public policy development and legislative activity for the association and supervises BIA’s lobbying team.
“Dave’s 21 years of public policy and management experience, well-developed staff relationships and familiarity with BIA’s operational activities made him a sound choice. We are looking forward to working with him during this transitional time at the BIA,” said Sheryl McQuade, president of BIA’s board of directors and regional president-Northern New England for TD Bank.
Juvet began his career with the Arizona Automobile Association in 1981 and has accumulated more than 35 years of experience in government relations, lobbying, public policy advocacy, media relations, marketing and public relations. Before moving to New England in 1988, Juvet worked for Arizona Gov. Evan Mecham as a public relations specialist in the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. In 1988, he joined the AAA Massachusetts/New Hampshire Division as a manager of government and public relations. In 1990, he was promoted to director of government affairs for AAA in New Hampshire and in 1997, he transitioned to director of marketing and public relations for the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Juvet, who currently serves on the Board of Reaching Higher New Hampshire, is married and lives in Concord.
The BIA said the national executive search firm Waverly Partners is working with its search committee to find a replacement for Roche, who is leaving this month to become president of the Maine Bankers Association.
Nominations of prospective candidates for the position, can be sent to Waverly Partners consultant Eric Peterson at BIAofNH@Waverly-Partners.com. Inquiries will remain confidential.
