WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 3, 2011—The Glover Park Group (GPG) announced that John Myers, most recently a Senior Advisor to Senator Arlen Specter, has joined the firm as a Vice President in its Government Affairs practice.

Working the Hill for more than a decade, Myers played a pivotal role in crafting innumerable major pieces of legislation, specifically in the Health and Science areas and most recently the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“John brings to us, not only a keen understanding of how the Hill works, but also a strong policy grounding on complicated legislative issues,” said Joel Johnson, Managing Director of The Glover Park Group’s Government Affairs practice. “His experience on both fronts will be invaluable to our clients as we help them navigate an unpredictable legislative agenda, especially on the health care front.”

Throughout his tenure in Senator Specter’s office, Myers managed relations with the both Democratic and Republican Administrations, as well as the Senate Judiciary, Finance and Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committees, and myriad House offices on matters relevant to the Senator’s agenda.

“A seasoned and respected veteran of Capitol Hill, John further strengthens our standout Health and Wellness team,” said Chip Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Glover Park Group. “His unique perspective will prove critical to the long-term success of our clients.”

Myers is a graduate of the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology.
