Background

President Biden announced July 13 his intent to nominate Alan Estevez as under secretary of Commerce for industry and security and Lisa Wang as assistant secretary of Commerce for enforcement and compliance.

According to a White House press release, Estevez joined a private-sector consulting firm as a national security strategy and logistics executive in June 2017 after a 36-year career with the Department of Defense. He most recently served as the principal deputy under secretary for acquisition, technology, and logistics. Previously he was the first career federal official to hold the position of assistant secretary for logistics and materiel readiness.

Wang is currently a partner at a private-sector law firm, where she specializes in international trade law matters such as antidumping and countervailing duty litigation and trade policy issues. Earlier in her career she served as a senior attorney in the Office of the Chief Counsel for Trade Enforcement and Compliance at the Department of Commerce and as assistant general counsel in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. Before that she spent three years as the senior import administration officer for the U.S. embassy in Beijing.
