DENSO Names Government Affairs Lead in Washington D.C.

Jared Eichhorn to work with policymakers and industry groups to address automotive issues.


DENSO has hired Jared Eichhorn as a senior manager and government affairs lead in Washington D.C.


In this role, Eichhorn will work with DENSO team members, legislators and industry groups to promote American manufacturing and cleaner, safer, more efficient mobility. Both are vital to DENSO’s “Two Great Causes”: Green – achieving carbon neutrality by 2035 – and Peace of Mind – creating a safe and seamless world for all.

“This is an exciting opportunity to build on DENSO’s solid government affairs foundation in Washington, D.C.,” said Eichhorn. “I’m inspired by DENSO’s legacy of innovation and its transformative approach to personal mobility. As we look toward the 118th Congress, I welcome the opportunity to share DENSO’s story with policymakers on Capitol Hill and in the Administration, and to explore how we can work together to create a sustainable future.”


Eichhorn joins DENSO from his previous role as director of Federal Affairs at the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, an automotive trade association in which DENSO is a member. He brings with him extensive experience in government affairs specializing in the automotive industry.

Eichhorn has advocated before Congress on behalf of U.S. automakers, suppliers and value chain partners on a variety of policy issues, with a focus on the industry’s transition to electric vehicles, EV infrastructure, trade, supply chains and more. He also has over a decade of professional experience on Capitol Hill from his time in the U.S. House of Representatives as a cloakroom director and floor assistant for multiple congressional leaders.


“We’re thrilled to welcome Jared to DENSO,” said Bob Townsend, vice president of Corporate Services and head of Government Affairs at DENSO. “He’ll play a key role in creating positive outcomes not only for DENSO, but also for the industry, our communities and the environment.”
