June 24, 2014

Mark Anderson, a 16 year Capitol Hill veteran, has returned to Kelley Drye & Warren LLP as a senior advisor in the Government Relations and Public Policy practice group, where he will focus on energy, manufacturing, data and cyber security, and consumer issues. Most recently,  Mr. Anderson served as Chief of Staff to Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE), the Chairman of the House Energy & Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, where he helped shepherd legislation pertaining to approval of  the Keystone XL Pipeline;  reauthorization of the nation’s poison control centers; and advocacy for domestic manufacturing  through creation of the House initiative "Nation of Builders."

"We’re delighted to have Mark rejoin the firm after an extended tenure on Capitol Hill.” said Paul C. Rosenthal, co-chair of the firm’s Government Relations and Public Policy practice. “Mark brings unique insight into the dynamics of Congress and credibility with both lawmakers and their staff, which are tremendous assets to our clients.”

In addition to Congressman Terry and Senator Blunt, Mr. Anderson has held positions with House Oversight & Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and former Congressman Frank Cremeans (R-OH).

The firm has also added advisor Scott McGee to its Government Relations and Public Policy practice. Mr. McGee’s previous experience includes serving as personal assistant to U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) for almost 5 years where he managed the Senator’s personal office operations. Prior to his work on Capitol Hill, Mr. McGee was special assistant to U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexis Herman, serving as the Secretary’s liaison to the White House Office of Cabinet Affairs.
