WASHINGTON, DCCRD Associates is pleased to announce that Brian Waldrip has joined the firm as Senior Vice President.  Brian brings to the firm more than 15 years of experience on Capitol Hill, most recently serving as Professional Staff for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and, before that, as Legislative Director for a senior member of the Florida Congressional Delegation. 

“We are delighted to add Brian to the team at CRD Associates.  His long background on Capitol Hill and his strong reputation for working in a bipartisan manner is already benefiting the firm and his clients.  We are expecting great things from him,” said Lyle Dennis, CRD Associates’ Partner.

At CRD Associates, Brian will partner with clients to develop and implement federal strategies to reach stakeholder goals.  His 15 years of federal service are particularly helpful to clients working in the areas of advocacy; appropriations; emerging technologies; higher education policy; and transportation and public works.

During Brian’s time working as Professional Staff for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, he managed oversight and investigations engagements across the full jurisdiction of the Committee.  In this role, he worked with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation, General Services Administration (GSA), and other federal entities.  Prior to his committee work, Brian served as Legislative Director for former Florida Congressman John Mica (FL07).  He successfully developed and executed strategies to meet the legislative goals of the member across all policy areas and advocated for a diverse group of stakeholders to affect change at the federal level.

Brian is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with minors in Economics and Asian Studies.
