Indianapolis-based Bose Public Affairs Group has added veteran lobbyist and influential Indiana Democrat Brad Queisser to its staff in Washington, D.C., the group announced Monday.
Bose has acquired Queisser’s business and government relations firm, mCapitol Management, as part of its strategy to strengthen its lobbying on the local, state and federal levels, the firm said in a press release.
“Brad is well known in Washington and in Indiana as a trusted adviser and expert on a wide range of complex policy issues,” said Doug Brown, managing principal of Bose Public Affairs Group. “We are thrilled to have Brad join our firm, bringing his expertise and the deep relationships of mCapitol Management to our existing clients.”
Queisser represents clients nationwide with a focus on issues for local governments, defense, energy, health care and technology. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Before mCapitol Management, Queisser served as director of government relations for Wall Street law firm Cadwalader Wickersham and Taft. He also has held several positions within the Democratic National Committee, including deputy executive director.
During his years in Indiana, he served as director of finance and operations for the Indiana Democratic Party. He also served in the administrations of Govs. Evan Bayh and Frank O’Bannon.
in 2013, Queisser received the prestigious Hamilton-O’Bannon Award. This award, named after O’Bannon and U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton, recognized Queisser’s “outstanding leadership, service and dedication” to the Indiana Democratic Party.
A graduate of Indiana University, Queisser is a member of the board of the Indiana Society of Washington, D.C., and the Washington, D.C.-based Indiana Forum.
