Press Release: Hamilton Place Strategies Announces New Partners and HPS Insight Public Policy Advisory Service
Washington, DC – Today, Hamilton Place Strategies announced that Steve McMillin and Scott Parsons have joined the firm as partners in conjunction with the formal launch of a new business line: HPS Insight. Together, with McMillin and Parsons, HPS Insight further builds HPS’ strength in public policy research and analysis.
HPS Insight provides objective and actionable analysis of public policy issues that impact global business. Government policy has never played a larger role in the global economy, so it has never been more critical for investors and firms to understand what governments are doing now, what they’re likely to do in the future, and the implications of those actions. HPS Insight is a fully integrated feature of our strategic communications and crisis management services, providing monitoring, research, and analysis on critical economic and regulatory issues. With deep knowledge of government and experience in the policy-making process, HPS develops strategies to anticipate and react to official policy actions.
“I’m honored that Steve McMillin and Scott Parsons are joining our team,” said Tony Fratto, HPS Managing Partner. “Both Steve and Scott have deep experience in the policymaking process at the highest levels of government, giving us the ability to offer our clients unmatched analysis and advice through HPS Insight and providing policy depth to strategic communications and crisis management engagements.“
Steve McMillin brings two decades of Washington experience to his new role at HPS. Recently, he has advised domestic and international clients on financial regulatory reform legislation and government fiscal policies and procedures as President of McMillin Consulting LLC. Until January 2009, he served in the White House as Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget, where he was responsible for leading the development and execution of the federal government budget, the regulatory review process, and the implementation of new policy and management initiatives. He also served as a Deputy Assistant to the President in the Office of the White House Chief of Staff, where he was responsible for coordinating high-level development of economic, domestic, and security policies for the Administration. Prior to his White House service, he held senior positions with the U.S. Senate Banking Committee and in the office of U.S. Senator Phil Gramm.
Scott Parsons has advised a diverse group of clients on business strategy and political and regulatory matters. He is a seasoned business and government executive who previously served as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the U.S. Department of Treasury, leading the Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Compliance Policy. In his Treasury role, he worked to address a number of global risk issues including financial stability, cyber vulnerabilities and identity theft, and money laundering and terrorist financing. His direct experience and knowledge relating to the Department of Treasury, federal regulation, the intelligence community, Congress and the White House enable Parsons to provide insight and context to help clients navigate the complex and dynamic U.S. political process.
