As a former lobbyist and Obama advisor, Collins has been on both sides of the political world. Though he flies very much under the radar, he uses his access and expertise to aid his clients including FedEx, Lockheed Martin, Walmart, Microsoft, Diageo, and sectors of Wall Street and the banking industry as they navigate Washington’s complex administrative, legislative and regulatory environments. He also keeps a hand in the public policy and global advocacy cookie jars as a trustee of the Brookings Institute and Meridian International Center.
