Brett Loper has joined the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) as senior executive vice president and director of Government Affairs.
Loper’s management experience includes serving as chief of staff for Rep. Jim McCrery, R-La., and most recently as minority staff director for the House Committee on Ways and Means, AdvaMed said.
The association said he has led large teams in the policy and legislative arenas, and will be responsible for guiding its advocacy efforts at the federal and state level.
“Brett joins AdvaMed at an important time and builds on the strength of our bipartisan staff of policy experts,” said Stephen J. Ubl, president and CEO of AdvaMed. “With the successful passage of the Medical Device User Fee Modernization Act behind us, we will work to ensure healthcare reform improves access and encourages the development of better treatments and cures and Medicare reimbursement policies keep pace with innovation.”
