Wyatt Stewart has joined the Big “I” Capitol Hill team as director of federal government affairs.
Stewart previously served as advisor for policy and coalitions for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), working in various capacities since January 2009. Prior to his work on Capitol Hill, Stewart worked for the Republican Party of Virginia.
“Wyatt brings a wealth of congressional and political experience to the Big ‘I,’” says Charles E. Symington, Jr., Big “I” senior vice president for external and government affairs. “The Big ‘I’ is pleased to welcome him to our federal government affairs team.”
A native of Washington, D.C., Stewart earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Richmond, where he was a four-year letterman on the varsity baseball team. He joins a bipartisan lobbying team primarily as a liaison to Republican congressional offices, filling the position previously held by Ryan Young, who recently departed the Big “I” to serve as director of business development for Husky Rack & Wire in Denver, N.C.
“With so many issues before Congress that are critical to our members and insurance consumers, we are glad to complete our team with a professional with such pertinent and extensive legislative experience,” Symington says. “Wyatt is well-respected on and off Capitol Hill, and he will do a stellar job representing independent insurance agents in the nation’s capital.”
