Moses Boyd

Moses is a Founding Partner of Integrated Solutions Group (ISG) with more than 20 years of experience in the Washington policy arena.

Moses’ Washington career began in 1989 as Consumer Affairs Counsel to the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation (U.S. Senate Commerce Committee).  The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee is tasked with overseeing the Communications, Technology and Transportation industries and the sale of goods and services in the U.S. economy.  

As Consumer Affairs Counsel, Moses handled matters pertaining to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (automobile manufacturing and safety regulations and Corporate Average Fuel Economy Standards), the Federal Trade Commission (antitrust, consumer protection and unfair trade practices), and issues relating to Natural Disasters, Insurance, the Internet and Product Liability.  In 1992 he was named Senior Consumer Affairs Counsel and in 1999, Democratic Chief Counsel to the full Committee.  As Chief Counsel, Moses, among other activities, oversaw the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee’s investigation of the Enron Corporation and efforts by the U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission to reform Federal antitrust review procedures of communication and energy industry mergers.

In 2003, Moses was selected to serve as a Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., where he concentrated on issues concerning American Politics.   He also spearheaded a national forum at the Center that brought together different ideological viewpoints on how to improve urban youth education (presented in Spring 2004).  He also conducted a college seminar that year on how Interest Groups Acquire and Effectuate Political Power (University of South Carolina).

Moses began his Government Affairs practice in 2004 and has represented businesses and organizations across numerous sectors, including the alternative energy, communications and technology sectors.  In 2004, he served on the John F. Kerry Presidential Campaign’s First 100-days Policy and Agenda Planning Committee. 

In 2006, he co-founded the Integrated Solutions Group (ISG). The ISG team immediately dedicated itself to advocating for the alternative energy industry and related federal policies. In 2009, the ISG team organized a national alliance of the renewable energy sectors.  The alliance included the wind, solar, biomass, waste-to-energy, hydropower industries, developers, technology companies and manufacturers (RES Alliance for Jobs). Moses served as the alliance’s first Executive Director. 

Moses is also a Founding Partner of the United States Renewable Energy Group (USREG), a private equity fund committed to integrating renewable and environmentally sound energy technologies into the American marketplace.

In 2007, Moses helped form the Access to Capital Coalition (ACC), a national business alliance of small and middle market businesses, minority-owned and women-owned private equity firms and entrepreneurs. The coalition was organized to ensure that the voices of these businesses were heard and considered when developing national tax and investment policies.  
  
In recognition of his role as a national advocate and policy and market expertise, Moses has participated in a number of national forums on alternative energy and climate change.  This includes the February 2010 Renewable Energy Technology Conference (RETECH) in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE).  

Prior to his tenure with the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, Moses practiced law in the state of South Carolina. He began his law practice in 1987.  Shortly thereafter, he was appointed by Members of the South Carolina General Assembly to serve as a Staff Attorney for the South Carolina Legislative Council, drafting laws for Members of the Legislature.

Mr. Boyd received his BA in 1983 and JD in 1986 from the University of South Carolina. In 2000, he completed Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government's Senior Executive Management Program for Public Managers.
