Article Gives Name and Face To Google D.C. Lobbyist
If you have ever wondered who exactly are the hardy troops Google has deployed in their Washington, D.C. office to lobby on its behalf, meet Pablo Chavez.
The subject of a full-page profile on Page 15 of today's Washington Examiner newspaper, Chavez is one of five Google lobbyists in the nation's capital. His advocacy for net neutrality, spectrum, and other issues frequently places Chavez at odds with far more entrenched and numerous U.S. telco and cable broadband lobbyists.
One factor that seems to help Google's cause, Chavez says, is a "cool factor" attributed to Google. It's a conversation-starter that when deftly applied, introduces a type of reciprocity can pave the way for Chavez and his colleagues to make their point with whoever they might be lobbying.
This is no personality puff piece, though. Author Patrick Gavin, does a great job talking to lobbyists who frequently oppose Google in D.C.
