Heidi Biggs Brock knew government relations before she became president of the Aluminum Association. For six years she was vice president of federal and international affairs for forest products company Weyerhaeuser. She also knew associations, managing Weyerhaeuser’s relationships with groups like the Business Roundtable and the National Association of Manufacturers. But she says it was her diversity of experience, including managing corporate strategic planning and running an e-business program, that was particularly appealing to the Aluminum Association’s executive committee as she interviewed for the job.
