Christopher Davis has over 15 years of experience working in Congress and the Executive Branch, including two congressional committees, the White House, and the U.S. Department of Energy. From 2015 to 2017, Christopher served as Deputy Chief of Staff to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, helping to manage a federal agency of over 110,000 personnel and an annual budget of $30 billion. He was awarded the Secretary's Exceptional Service Award in 2017 for his work leading departmental efforts on energy efficiency rulemaking, electricity transmission and natural gas permitting, and coordinating DOE's efforts on implementing the Iran nuclear agreement.
Christopher held a number of other positions at the Department of Energy beginning in 2011, including serving as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Congressional Affairs, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for House Affairs, and as the Senior Advisor for Oversight and Investigations.
In 2009 and 2010, Christopher worked in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs, where he handled the confirmation process for hundreds of Executive Branch nominees.
Prior to his time in the Executive Branch, Christopher served in multiple congressional oversight roles. As a Professional Staff Member on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, he investigated federal waste and wrongdoing — resulting in reforms in federal programs and millions of dollars in recovered public funds. He also contributed to numerous analytical policy reports on topics such as the local impact of proposed legislation and the benefits of federal programs.
Christopher has traveled extensively, most recently living in Spain for much of 2017. Christopher is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
