Catalyst knows how to navigate the political landscape in Washington DC, which is particularly important to those in the financial services sector that have faced years of unprecedented disruption. They are a go-to firm because they have the relationships and the substantive knowledge of the complexities of the issues facing our stakeholders, and can leverage both to produce substantive action and results.

Catalyst brings a full 360-degree approach to federal advocacy including direct lobbying services, public affairs and unique membership engagement opportunities, helping our clients achieve their desired outcomes.

Even though our team’s experience in government began working as staff in the U.S. Senate over 15 years ago, Catalyst developed a broad network of relationships cultivated and nourished through its on-going work in the states. With nearly 50% of the members of U.S. Congress having served in their respective state legislature and more than 25% of the U.S. Senate having held statewide elected office, Catalyst forged early relationships, and most importantly, trust, with these members.

Helping our clients develop comprehensive strategies and leveraging our relationships with federal officials and policymakers, we are constantly integrating all level of federal advocacy into the other areas of services we provide.

While we are focused on providing a quality learning experience for our students, Catalyst is focused on making certain we have a seat at the table in budget decisions that impact our education funding, especially in difficult budget years. They have coordinated high-level strategic engagements to help achieve our goals and build relationships, not only in Jefferson City and Washington, D.C., but across the country.
