Like so many others before him, Casey Sixkiller moved from Seattle, Washington to the “other” Washington to be an intern in the House of Representatives. One year and a college degree later, he took a full-time position on the Hill and pursued his interest in public service. Over the past 17 years, Sixkiller has helped shape the development of public policy that, as he says, “helps empower local and tribal leaders,” secure investments in public infrastructure, and assist businesses in pursuing new markets.
Today, Sixkiller leads the firm he founded in 2010, and provides direction across our client portfolio and service lines. Clients rely on Casey’s strategic approach, political insight, and understanding of the intersection between policy, politics and business to help advance their priorities. He has a proven record of being able to navigate across the political spectrum and to help bring stakeholders together.
“I help our clients solve problems, advance ideas, create jobs, and – perhaps most importantly – ensure their stories are heard by decision makers in Washington”
Sixkiller previously worked for Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), serving as the Senator’s principal policy advisor on transportation, housing and community development, Tribal affairs and commercial fisheries issues, and also as associate staff to the Senate Transportation-HUD Appropriations Subcommittee and Senate Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Subcommittee.
Prior to joining Senator Murray’s staff, Sixkiller helped establish the Cherokee Nation’s Washington Office, where he served as the Nation’s lead advocate before Congress and federal agencies.
Sixkiller began his career as a legislative assistant to Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA), where he managed legislation before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Resources and transportation policy issues.
