Chamber’s Government Relations Vice President Brad Williams Named to Crain’s ’50 Names to Know in Lobbying’

The Detroit Regional Chamber congratulates Vice President of Government Relations Brad Williams on his inclusion as one of Crain’s Detroit Business’ 50 Names to Know in Lobbying. Williams was recognized for his work advocating on behalf of regional and statewide businesses.

Brad is the Detroit chamber of commerce’s day-to-day lobbyist at the Capitol, keeping tabs on everything from policy affecting manufacturers and hospitals to economic development and K-12 and higher education, where the chamber has focused much of its lobbying efforts in recent years because of talent deficits in the workforce. Brad is often a key player in getting Detroit-specific public policy through the Legislature. He was involved in the successful passage of the 2014 “grand bargain” legislation to get Detroit out of bankruptcy. He’s been a leading advocate for expanding mass transit options in Southeast Michigan and works on statewide transportation policy and funding issues. Brad also oversees the Detroit Chamber’s political action committee. Brad was a 2016 Crain’s 40 under 40 honoree.

Chamber partners Andrea Cascarilla, senior legislative director, and Sarah Hubbard, principal, both of Acuitas LLC were also awarded this recognition.
