Alexandria, VA – July 25, 2016 – Today, McKeon Group announced the addition of government contracting services in an effort to broaden both firms’ client offerings. McKeon’s prime foci of government advocacy and investment capital will be bolstered by Oxley’s decade of expertise driving business development opportunities to small and mid-sized government contractors.
“We are very pleased to integrate Oxley’s expertise into our growing firm,” said McKeon Group founder and CEO, Howard “Buck” McKeon, former Chairman of the US House Armed Services Committee. “The natural dovetail between our clients’ government relations, investment capital, and public sector sales objectives seems obvious but this makes McKeon Group’s vertically integrated service offering very unique and powerful. Our clients stand to reap more benefits from this cross pollination versus managing multiple estranged vendors. We can now service clients from legislation to debt obligation to acquisition.”
“Oxley Consulting’s public sector business development clients will benefit significantly from McKeon’s excellent, trusted relationships, especially those within the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Administration,” stated Elvis Oxley. “The Chairman’s reputation as a trustworthy partner, sincere advocate, and realistic source of political intelligence have served as the catalyst for McKeon Group’s steady growth and we are delighted to be associated with this great team.“
It is important to note that neither Elvis Oxley, nor any member of the McKeon Group team, will formally lobby Congress due primarily to certain restrictions within the public sector procurement process. Oxley will, however, offer additional services to McKeon’s current stable of defense and aerospace clients such as business development resources, subcontractor vetting, and networking.
The McKeon Group is comprised of a bipartisan team of highly skilled professionals with the knowledge, expertise and relationships needed to work seamlessly with partners at federal, state and local levels. McKeon Group was founded by former Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), Howard “Buck” McKeon, after serving the 25th District of California for 22 years. Chairman McKeon brings enormous insight and experience in defense-related matters, including serving on the HASC during previous BRAC rounds, to our team’s efforts to assist communities in maintaining and enhancing military installations. With decades of experience in the public and private sector, the McKeon Group team believes in covering the waterfront from government relations to third-party validators, in order to successfully assist states and municipalities with crafting a tailored BRAC strategy.
