Lobby shop The Madison Group has signed on a trio of new clients, bringing aboard global firm ICF International, Dallas-based Energy Future Holdings Corp. and Spectrum Bridge, a spectrum auction firm.
Madison will focus on a transportation reauthorization bill for ICF and energy and climate control matters for the Energy Future Holdings Corp. For Spectrum, the firm is following technology matters related to spectrum auctions, according to a recent lobbying disclosure filing with the Senate.
Firm founder Robb Watters said his business is growing. "It's really a testament to the quality of the partners we have like Blair Watters and Marcus Mason," Robb Watters said.
Blair Watters is married to Robb Watters and is a former aide to the House Democratic Caucus. Mason was senior director of government affairs for Amtrak before joining the firm. "People are finding more value in boutique firms that don't carry the overhead costs affiliated with larger firms," Robb Watters said.
