Michael Best Strategies has partnered with Bradford (Brad) Cheney, a senior advisor at Majority Group, to expand the firm’s service offerings.
With nearly twenty years of experience in Washington, Cheney is known for representing clients – including before Members of Congress and the Executive Branch – on issues involving financial services, foreign affairs, housing, tax and real estate finance. While he will remain in his role at Majority Group, in his dual role as a senior advisor with Michael Best Strategies, Cheney will also help Michael Best Strategies with its growing financial services, capital markets, and real estate practice.
“Brad is a standout addition to the Michael Best Strategies team, especially amid a time of such need for our clients,” said Rob Marchant, President of Michael Best Strategies. “The depth of his public policy knowledge and experience in key industry sectors like financial services is second to none. As our clients look for solutions to the economic challenges facing their businesses, Brad’s expertise and relationships will be critically valuable.”
Prior to joining Majority Group, Cheney worked as a lobbyist at the Eris Group, which was acquired by the full-service law and lobbying firm, GrayRobinson, in 2019. He also served as senior democratic lobbyist and assistant vice president of legislative affairs at the Mortgage Bankers Association for more than eight years, chief of staff to Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA), chairman of the Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship and Capital Markets Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee, senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign as deputy state director in Vermont and Virginia.
“Partnering with Michael Best Strategies will present new and exciting challenges for me,” said Cheney. “The firm is highly regarded in D.C. and well-known across the country for its government relations and public affairs work. I continue to be impressed with the counsel the teams provide to their clients and I’m looking forward to getting started.”
Cheney earned his M.A. in Political Management from George Washington University and his B.A., cum laude, in Political Science from American University.
