An attorney and engineer with 15 years of varied public policy experience in Washington, D.C., Mark Burtschi has been the Director of Federal and State Affairs for the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company since 2000. He handles issues related to employment, energy use, environment, health, legal reform, safety, scrap tires, taxes, trade and workers compensation. He also specializes in working with states to help finance manufacturing facility upgrades and expansions.
Mark was formerly the director of Air Quality at the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). At NAM, Burtschi led the manufacturing industry’s efforts on clean air, enforcement and compliance, environmental audits and the explosion of information on the Internet as part of community right-to-know issues. In 1999, he chaired the industry’s legislative efforts that led to the enactment of the “Chemical Safety Information, Site Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief Act.” The bill addressed concerns of federal and state security agencies related to terrorism at chemical facilities prior to the 9-11 incidents in 2001.
He began his career in the oil patch, drilling wildcat wells in Wyoming and North Dakota and worked production in the Gulf of Mexico for a number of companies. Burtschi’s Washington, D.C. experience includes three law firms. He was also with the American Nuclear Energy Council, which merged into the Nuclear Energy Institute. During about five years, he worked on both federal and state issues for the nuclear electric utility industry, including environment, energy, transportation, budget, appropriations and international terrorism and trade in special nuclear materials. Specifically, he represented the nuclear industry in the 1990 Clean Air Act, the Energy Policy Act of 1992, and the 1995 U.S.-Euratom Agreement, which provides for continued cooperation in nuclear safety, trade in nuclear materials and technology, and terrorism/nonproliferation concerns.
Burtschi, who earned a bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and a law degree from the University of Denver College of Law, is a member of the Virginia Bar.
