John “JB” Byrd Named A Top 100 Lobbyist For 2021


Fairfax, Virginia – Miller/Wenhold Capitol Strategies is excited to announce John “JB” Byrd has been named one of Washington’s top 100 lobbyists for 2021 by the National Institute for Lobbying and Ethics (NILE).

Byrd is Senior Vice President for Miller/Wenhold and overseas its policy team, where he specializes in transportation, infrastructure, and geospatial issues for clients.

“JB is an amazing professional, and this honor is so deserved”, stated Paul Miller, partner with Miller/Wenhold. “What most people do not know, there are over 14,000 registered federal lobbyists in Washington and more than double that working in every state capital across the country. For JB to be recognized by his peers in this way is a testament not only to the work he puts in, but the success he achieves for our clients,” added Miller/Wenhold CEO Paul Miller.

“This is the second consecutive year JB has received this recognition. He is deserving of this honor for his bipartisan work, gentlemanly manner, and effective advocacy. He has been a valued colleague for more than 15 years, and when considering the challenges of lobbying during the COVID pandemic, this acknowledgement by the lobbying community is a testament to his success,” said Miller/Wenhold partner John Palatiello.

Miller/Wenhold is a federal focused policy firm that specializes in geospatial, healthcare, transportation, engineering, infrastructure, maritime, tax, trade, small business, procurement, and education issues for clients.
