David Thompson has over three decades of experience lobbying the federal government and working on Capitol Hill assisting powerful Members of Congress in an effort to create an environment where businesses can grow and be free of the unnecessarily burdensome regulations that hinder growth in the economy. His vast experience on Capitol Hill at the very highest levels of that institution give him unique insight into the inner workings of Congress and its decision-making process, which he uses to advise clients on the best approach to secure real and meaningful action on their priorities.
David spent nearly a decade in the U.S. Congress as a Senior Policy Advisor to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. In this role, he served as the Speaker’s primary advisor on issues relating to energy, environment, natural resources, and agriculture. In addition, David has extensive experience with the congressional oversight process, as well as tariff and trade matters, and tax issues.
After leaving Capitol Hill, David became Senior Vice President at the Capitol Hill Consulting Group where, for over a decade, he helped design specialized lobbying strategies in environment, energy, tax, trade, and financial services sectors, as well as appropriations strategies for the firm’s clients. In addition to his keen insight into the decision-making process, David is known by many as honest and good natured but one who advocates fiercely for his client’s interests.
