Jen Adler, Communications Director for the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and long-time aide to Chairman Peter DeFazio (OR-4), joins Cassidy and Associates as Senior Vice President. 

“Jen has played a key role in successful efforts to tackle major surface transportation, water resource, and aviation issues in the last several years. Her experience, strategic and political acumen, and ability to deliver results is a tremendous asset for Cassidy and Associates and for our clients,” said Cassidy CEO Kai Anderson.

Since 2015, Adler has gained significant experience in all issue areas under the jurisdiction of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, including surface transportation, aviation, water infrastructure and maritime transportation, rail and pipelines, and public buildings. Prior to that, she served on the Committee on Natural Resources and worked extensively on issues related to conservation, public lands, and resource development.

During her time on Capitol Hill, Adler earned a reputation for her effectiveness, responsiveness, and for her ability to turn ideas into action. As a top communications professional, Adler was responsible for taking complex policy and translating it to make a lasting impact in Member offices and in the public debate.  Adler believes these attributes will help her succeed at Cassidy.

“In my previous roles, I consistently navigated tight deadlines and complicated policy and political issues to achieve important legislative goals. I am excited to take the skills I sharpened on the Hill and use them to accomplish our goals at Cassidy. This is an incredibly talented and hard working team, and I look forward to getting started,” said Adler.

Adler has served as one of DeFazio’s top aides for the last twelve years—including as his campaign manager for three campaign cycles. She moved to Washington, D.C. from her beloved State of Oregon.
