Hazen Marshall Founding Partner, Marshall & Popp
Hazen is one of Washington's top policy experts, with three-decades of legislative policy experience, including over twenty years in the Senate as a senior leadership aide and ten years providing strategic consulting and lobbying services to Fortune 100 businesses and trade associations.
Since founding Marshall & Popp at the beginning of 2019, Hazen and his partner Monica Popp have compiled an impressive client list of Fortune 500 companies, industry trade associations, investment advisors, and new businesses. Each of their clients is a recognized innovator, and their work for them has spanned the breadth of policymaking--from creating new productive relationships, to detailed legislative negotiations, to securing high-level, actionable intel from senior officials.
Before founding Marshall & Popp, Hazen served as the Policy Director for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a role in which he participated in the planning and execution of all Senate Republican legislative and political accomplishments in the 114th and 115th Congresses, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, health care reform, use of the Congressional Review Act, extension of Trade Promotion Authority, a five-year highway bill, and the Internet Tax Freedom Act. Hazen was the primary Senate Republican negotiator for the Bipartisan Budget Acts of 2015 and 2018, which led to historic investments in defense, homeland security, and congressional priorities like infrastructure and opioids.
Prior to returning to the Senate, Hazen was a founding partner of the Nickles Group, where he spent a decade advising clients. Hazen worked closely with clients on issues that included energy, taxes, telecommunications, retail, pensions, electricity, insurance, defense/aerospace, and the automotive industry.
Hazen began his career working for Senator Don Nickles (R-OK) from 1987 to 2004, including as Staff Director for the Senate Budget Committee and Chief of Staff to the Assistant Republican Leader.
Hazen is a graduate of Oklahoma State University.
