WASHINGTON, D.C.— Carlos Bonilla, former White House economic policy advisor, has joined Ketchum’s lobbying subsidiary, The Washington Group, as senior vice president.
Bonilla most recently served as a special assistant to President George W. Bush on economic policy. He was part of the Bush administration’s tax policy team and held the labor and aviation portfolios at the National Economic Council. He worked extensively on the president’s first two tax bills, and pension issues, including the post-Enron reforms to 401(k) plans.
“Carlos Bonilla brings an invaluable combination of White House policy and D.C. politics to The Washington Group,” said Susan Molinari, TWG president and CEO.
Prior to joining the Bush Administration, Mr. Bonilla served as a Washington-based advisor to the Bush campaign and assisted the campaign with the formulation and refinement of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act. Earlier, he was an economist for the House Budget Committee under then-chairman John Kasich (R-Ohio)
