Former local resident changing direction on Capitol Hill

GREENVILLE — A former Greenville resident and Herald-Banner employee has retired from a long career with the Texas congressional delegation in Washington D.C.

Barry Brown, who most recently served as Chief of Staff for Representative Mike Burgess (R-Lewisville), has joined the Alpine Group, a government affairs consulting firm located on Capitol Hill, as a Vice President. Brown had served in various capacities on Capitol Hill for more than two decades, and still recalls his home town.

“I left Greenville in 1986 to attend Texas Tech University where my early political career began,” Brown said. “Following graduation from Texas Tech in 1989, I moved from Greenville to DC to start my career on Capitol Hill.  I worked for the Greenville Herald Banner for about nine years starting as a carrier in third grade advancing to delivering the newspaper bundles to all of the carriers on the north side of town through my freshman year in college at ETSU. Lots of good memories about the Herald Banner.”

 Brown served as Chief of Staff for Rep. Burgess for the past ten years.  Rep. Burgess is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and serves as Vice Chair of the Health Subcommittee.

 Brown began his career as a Legislative Assistant for Rep. Larry Combest (R-TX) handling telecommunications, energy, higher education and judiciary issues.

Brown then served as Legislative Director for Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and Chairman of the Trade Subcommittee.  In 2000, Brown joined the congressional staff of Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), a member of the House Appropriations Committee. 

In addition, Brown serves as the First Vice President of the Texas State Society of Washington, D.C. and also serves on the Board of Governors of the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill.

 Brown currently resides in Washington, D.C. with his wife Jennifer and their two children.

“We welcome Barry to the Alpine Group and, as a lifelong participant in Texas politics, his insights there as well as on Congress and the House Energy and Commerce Committee will benefit our clients across the board,” Greg Means, Principal and CFO of the firm, said.
