Jamie Brown has a proven track record of success in Washington, DC, wearing many hats: as chief legislative affairs officer for a Cabinet agency, as a White House lobbyist, as the chief lobbyist for a major high tech company and as a Senate staffer. In 2008, Politico named her one of “50 Politicos to Watch.”
Jamie joined Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti Inc. after serving as Google Inc.’s first in-house lobbyist. She was an early addition to the technology titan’s Washington office, and set to work establishing an effective advocacy presence in the nation’s capital. Jamie led efforts to create a Political Action Committee, develop a training curriculum for Congressional staff to promote the brand, and shape the company’s public policy messages. Her experience at Google gave Jamie valuable insights: an ability to understand the needs and views of corporate innovators and advocates, and an insider’s perspective on the legislative and political challenges facing cutting-edge businesses today.
Prior to her time at Google, Jamie served as a Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs in the White House. In that capacity, she managed the Senate strategy for the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito. She also served as the liaison to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Afffairs Commit- tee. These duties placed her amidst successful efforts to enact class action reform, bankruptcy reform, PATRIOT Act reauthorization and numerous other civil and criminal reforms.
Before serving in the White House, Jamie held positions at the U.S. Department of Justice, including Acting Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs, Director of the Office of Intergovernmental and Public liaison and Advisor to Attorney General.
From 1998-2002, Jamie worked as a lobbyist at Verner Liipfert Bernhard McPherson and Hand, where she represented clients before Congress and the Executive branch on issues including trade, appropriations, tort reform, base closure and environmental regulations.
Jamie began her career as a Legislative Counsel to U.S. Senator Connie Mack (R-FL), a member of the Senate Republican leadership.
A Connecticut native, Jamie currently resides in Washington, D.C.
