Marty Russo Bio

Former Congressman Marty Russo draws on a long career in public office and as a top federal lobbyist to provide strategic counsel to clients who want to have a stronger impact in Washington.A passionate believer in the First Amendment right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” he believes that the best lobbyist is one who gets involved and presents public officials with credible, relevant information that encompasses all sides of an issue.As a nine term veteran of the U.S. House of Representatives (D-IL), Russo has walked in the shoes of an elected official who must tackle tough public policy issues while still answering to constituents back home.This viewpoint guides his advice on how to have more influence in Washington. He believes in being active—get involved early and make sure your voice is heard. That’s what he has done for constituents and clients since he was first elected to Congress at the age of 30 in the Watergate class of 1974.Russo served as CEO of one of Washington’s largest and most prestigious government relations firm and in his eighteen years of service he counseled hundreds of clients.He serves as a Secretary of the American-Australian Leadership Dialogue, on the Congressional Fiscal Leadership Council (CFLC) of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, and on the Advisory Board of the Leadership Institute at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California.A native of Chicago, Russo received his Bachelor of Arts degree and Juris Doctor degree from DePaul University.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Marty Russo and other top speakers and celebrities.
