Client Testimonials
  • The NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots

    Committed, accessible, unrelenting, and sincere are attributes that best describe TKG.  I can attest that no one on Capitol Hill works harder, cares more and produces more results than Frank McCarthy and the team at the Keelen Group. Moreover, it is a genuine family atmosphere where clients are made to feel part of the team. A devoted staff and an exceptionally talented lobbying team make TKG the absolute best choice for representation in Washington, DC.”

    Coley George, Government Affairs Committee Chairman

    NJASAP, The NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots

  • National Insulation Association

    We chose Matt and his team, The Keelen Group, for their knowledge of the players on Capitol Hill, their ability to bring the right players together, and their ability to understand and achieve our goals within the structure and environment of the Hill. The Keelen Group is more than just a lobbying firm, they are an extension of our organization and industry.”

    Michele M. Jones, Executive Vice President/CEO

    The National Insulation Association

  • Plastics Industry Trade Association

    “We have been working with The Keelen Group to broaden our reach in Washington for over 7 years. They have deeply affected our efforts. TKG has become an integral part of our association team and have helped us build a strong presence on Capitol Hill. Their outstanding work organizing our fly-ins, promoting our legislative agenda, and helping us start a PAC allows us to provide top-notch service to our members. I highly recommend their expertise and services to any trade association, corporation, or small business.”

  • The Doctors Company

    “The Keelen Group has been one of the best investments we have made in our government relations strategy. Their ability to work in a bipartisan manner, especially on issues that haven’t traditionally been bipartisan, has been immensely important to us and our company. TKG’s experience, connections, and knowledge of Capitol Hill set them apart and is the reason why we have been a part of their family for over 10 years.”

    Elizabeth Healy, Assistant Vice President of Government Relations

    The Doctors Company

  • Mason Contractors Association of America

    “The Mason Contractors Association of America has been extremely satisfied with the efforts of the Keelen Group on our behalf. Their team has elevated our legislative activity to a height we were unable to reach with our own independent lobbyist, and their expert political strategy has increased the efficiency of our PAC dramatically. It is unclear to me how they do it, but they provide so much personal attention that it seems as if we are their only client! The Keelen Group has absolutely affected our success rate.  I would highly recommend them to anyone.” 

    Jeff Buczkiewicz, Executive Director

    Mason Contractors Association of America

  • International Association of Fire Fighters

    “The Keelen Group has represented the IAFF nearly 10 years.  During that time, through the strategic outreach of TKG, we have built several dozen relationships with Republican legislators in Washington, DC and in many states.  These relationships have yielded tremendous successes for the IAFF.  We have passed several huge pieces of legislation which yielded extremely positive results for our members; these include the recent 9/11 Health bill, HELPS, Safer funding, and Pension reform.  They are a huge part of our team.”

    Kevin O’Conner, Vice President Government Affairs

    International Association of Fire Fighters

  • American Society of Interior Designers

    “The Keelen Group sets the standard for quality and lasting relationship building with elected officials - both in Washington DC as well as in state capitals. Their hard work ethic is the difference maker between lobbying success and failure, especially given the large amount of public policy issues affecting our organization's membership.”

    Jim Brewer, Vice President of Government Affairs
