The young lobbyists with the most influence in Washington

By: Marisa M. Kashino

Name: Sam Gedulgig
Firm: Clark Lytle & Geduldig
Age: 38

Geduldig has friends in high places. As deputy political director and then political director to Ohio Republican representative John Boehner—now speaker of the House—Geduldig traveled with the congressman constantly. He remains close to Boehner and his staff. In addition to the political work, Geduldig gained four years of policy expertise as a senior adviser to then House Republican whip Roy Blunt. Geduldig’s Hill experiences allow him to offer his clients an exceptionally well-rounded view of the legislative process.

Since he joined his firm in 2007, its client list has tripled to include companies such as Verizon and Teradata. With Republicans back in power in the House, Geduldig is capitalizing on their subpoena power to help his clients get answers from regulators, particularly regarding financial reform.
