AAR's Hamberger ranks among nation's top lobbyists
Association of American Railroads (AAR) President and Chief Executive Officer Edward Hamberger has been named one of the nation's top lobbyists in 2017 by The Hill, a national political newspaper.
AAR's top executive since 1998, Hamberger was included on the list of lobbyists serving associations.
"Hamberger has been plugging away to ensure that railroad funding and other rail-friendly priorities are included in any infrastructure package that comes out of the White House," The Hill reported.
Hamberger has more than 40 years of combined experience in private legal practice and the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. government, according to his AAR bio.
He began his career in transportation as general counsel of the National Transportation Policy Study Commission. He also has served as assistance secretary for governmental affairs at the U.S. Department of Transportation and managing partner at Baker, Donelson, Bearman & Caldwell in Washington, D.C.
