Michael Catanzaro has spent much of his career shaping energy and environmental policy in the White House, Congress and the private sector. He served as communications director on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee before joining the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign as the top adviser on energy and environmental policy. That led to posts as associate director for policy in the White House Council on Environmental Quality and associate deputy administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Catanzaro returned to Capitol Hill in March 2009 as a top aide on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee before joining then-Speaker John Boehner’s staff as the Ohio Republican’s top adviser on energy policy. His extensive private-sector experience includes stints as the director of Federal Legislative Relations for PPL Corp. and a managing director in FTI Consulting’s strategic communications practice, where he advised electric utilities, integrated oil and gas companies and major trade associations. He began his career as a reporter and editor for the Evans and Novak Political report, a famed bi-weekly newsletter managed by the late syndicated columnist Bob Novak.
