Longtime Senate Leadership Veteran Tricia Engle Joins FGS Global as Partner

28 July 2023 / Washington DC – Leading global strategic communications advisory firm FGS Global announced veteran Senate floor aide Tricia Engle is joining as a partner. Engle brings to the firm 26 years of experience working side-by-side with Senate leadership and unparalleled knowledge of the workings of Congress. 

“Tricia is truly once in a generation in terms of her talent and tenure. We could not feel more fortunate to welcome her to our consulting team,” said FGS Global partner Joel Johnson. “From a legislative perspective, very few professionals can claim to have seen it all and done it all. Senators and colleagues on both sides of the aisle can attest that Tricia has accomplished both; and with great skill, humility, humor and insight.”

Having worked for three Democratic Leaders, Engle has cultivated intimate knowledge of the internal dynamics at the highest levels of the Senate leadership, an impressive track record of successful legislative accomplishments and extensive relationships throughout the government.  

“Without Tricia, the Democratic caucus wouldn’t have accomplished a fraction – and that is true, a fraction – of all the amazing things that we’ve gotten done over the years,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in lengthy floor remarks marking Engle’s departure and celebrating her many contributions. “Today I want to express how grateful I am for all the good work [she’s] done during my time as Leader.” 

Engle was most recently U.S. Senate Assistant Secretary for the Majority, where she managed Senate legislative floor operations for Schumer and the entire Democratic Caucus. Previously, she served as Senior Floor Assistant to Leaders Daschle and Reid for over a decade, managing legislative floor operations.

Engle received a Bachelor’s of Art in Political Science from South Dakota State University and Master’s degrees in both business administration and government from Johns Hopkins University. She will be based in the Washington, DC office.
