Following 22 years of public service in Congress, Chairman Buck McKeon and members of the McKeon Group team have been engaging with members of Congress, the Services, the Department of Defense and other Administration officials, since January 2016.

In 2015, Chairman McKeon and Howard McKeon founded a consulting company, the McKeon Group, where he and his team have been engaged in business development and government relations activities on behalf of a wide range of issues and clients.

“I am excited to once again be engaging with my friends and former colleagues in Congress,” said Chairman McKeon. “I look forward to continuing my work with Congress on issues that are important to me – just in a different capacity.”

Since February 2015, the McKeon Group has added several members to its growing team.  Howard McKeon joined as the chief operating officer, drawing on his years of experience in corporate America. Bob Cochran, the Chairman’s former chief of staff on Capitol Hill, joined as a senior partner.  Keith Zuegel, a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and corporate lobbyist, joined as a senior vice president.  And, Jessica Lawrence-Vaca, a seasoned Democratic lobbyist and Capitol Hill staffer, joined as a senior vice president.

In 2016 the McKeon Group team will continue to add depth to their team’s bench, so they can best serve the needs of their clients.
