CAPSTONE NATIONAL PARTNERS WELCOMES JOHN WEINFURTER AS PARTNER, CONTINUES EXPANSION IN WASHINGTON DC.
September 19, 2016, Milwaukee, WI – Capstone National Partners (Capstone), a full service government affairs firm with offices in Washington, D.C and Milwaukee, WI is delighted to announce that John Weinfurter has joined its Washington, DC team as partner and Vice President.
John Rogers, Capstone CEO and founder, commented,
“John brings an unparalleled knowledge of how to get things done in Washington, DC — not an easy feat in today’s political climate. With his coming on board we have deepened our bench strength, adding value to Capstone’s current and future clients.”
Mr. Weinfurter has spent his career in Washington. Following a 20 -year career on Capitol Hill as Chief of Staff to Massachusetts Rep. Joe Moakley (D), chairman of the House Rules Committee, he brought his unique understanding of policy and the inner workings of Congress to the private sector, serving clients across a broad spectrum of market sectors, including healthcare, energy, insurance, financial services, international development and procurement.
Prior to joining Capstone, he served as VP Government Affairs at Witt O’Brien, the global leader in crisis and emergency management headed by former FEMA Director James Lee Witt. He also served as President and Principal at KSCW, Inc.
John is also the current President of the House Chiefs of Staff Alumni Association (HCOSAA), a bipartisan member-driven educational and professional organization that brings together former and current House Chiefs of Staff for networking events and presentations on current events. His elegant Capitol Hill town house, just a block from the Hart Senate Office Building, has become one of the most popular sites for fundraising events.
“I grew up and went to college in Wisconsin, so joining Capstone, with its Washington base and Wisconsin focus, is like coming home,” said Mr. Weinfurter. “It’s a privilege to work with such a cohesive, knowledgeable and dedicated group of lobbyists –a winning combination for our Wisconsin, national and international clients. I am so excited to work at Capstone.”
