Respected political newspaper The Hill has named Bob Rusbuldt, Big “I” president & CEO, one of the top trade association lobbyists in Washington, D.C.
Rusbuldt and the Big “I” government affairs staff have been recognized for a number of years as one of the top lobbying operations on Capitol Hill. Rusbuldt has also been recognized as one of the top association CEOs numerous times.
Several former members of Congress who are now lobbyists also earned spots on this year’s list, including Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.), Rep. Ken Bentsen (D-Texas) and Rep. Steve Largent (R-Okla.). Former Gov. Frank Keating (R-Okla.) also made the list. The Big “I” was one of only three insurance associations named this year (alongside AIA and PCI), and was the only insurance agent/broker group on the list.
“Our Big ‘I’ government affairs team, under the leadership of Charles Symington, is top notch and well-respected on Capitol Hill,” Rusbuldt says. “Their hard work and commitment to the independent agents and brokers they serve continues to have an impact in Washington, D.C., and this award recognizes the hard work and dedication of the government affairs staff.”
