Former congressional Chief of Staff to enhance healthcare and financial services practices.

Washington, D.C.: Prime Policy Group, Washington’s premier bipartisan government relations and consulting firm, is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Hart Thompson has joined their ranks as Managing Director. Elizabeth spent much of her career on Capitol Hill, where she served as Chief of Staff to Rep. John Carney (D-DE) and Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL). She will join the firm’s healthcare practice, and will enhance Prime’s financial services and technology practices.

During her tenure in the House of Representative, Elizabeth was intimately involved in matters pertaining to the financial services industry and led congressional efforts to amend the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to protect derivative end-users. She was instrumental in the passage of a 2014 standalone bill to amend the Affordable Care Act, which required her to coalesce support from within Congress and outside stakeholder groups.

“We are thrilled to have Elizabeth join our team,” says Prime Policy Group President and CEO, Scott Pastrick. “She is results driven with a wealth of experience in both the public and private sector, and has an extensive bipartisan network on Capitol Hill and throughout Washington. Her work helping execute the mission of the New Democrat Coalition is especially valuable in the current policy and political environment.”

Utilizing her extensive knowledge of the political and legislative processes, Elizabeth is particularly adept at developing and executing advocacy strategies that will deliver meaningful outcomes to the firm’s clients.
