Washington, DC (September 6, 2017) — 38 North Solutions, a lobbying firm that advises innovative companies and organizations, announces the addition of Dave Hoppe as Senior Principal. Until January, Mr. Hoppe served as Chief of Staff to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), where he oversaw the Speaker’s leadership organization and served as his senior advisor. Further, Hoppe holds the distinction of being the only person to have served as Chief of Staff to both the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader, having worked as Chief to Senator Trent Lott, during his term as Senate Majority Leader.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dave to 38 North,” states Katherine Hamilton, Chair of the firm. “His vast experience in public policy and political strategy complements our team’s expertise in clean energy and technology innovation.”
Hoppe joins Hamilton and Isaac Brown, Managing Partner, who has previous experience as Democratic leadership staff and currently manages a host of issue campaigns and entrepreneurial clients.
Hamilton’s background in electric utility technologies allows her to understand the implementation of clean energy policy. Her public-facing roles include co-hosting Greentech Media’s The Energy Gang podcast, co-chairing the World Economic Forum’s Future of Energy Council, and serving as President of GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic.
Hamilton and Hoppe were colleagues at Quinn Gillespie prior to that firm’s energy team splitting off and co-founding 38 North Solutions—a reference to the geographic latitude connecting Washington, DC to San Francisco, and representing the linkage of policy to innovation.
“38 North is a recognized leader in helping innovative companies address policy challenges and opportunities through strategic engagement,” states Hoppe, “I look forward to working with our firm’s clients to advance their interests in Washington.”
