WASHINGTON, DC—Jon Gans, lead policy advisor and legislative strategist to Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ), is joining the Glover Park Group as a managing director.

Gans, a lawyer with more than a decade of service in government, has served in top positions with the Senate Republican Leadership, the White House and the House of Representatives. He is currently deputy chief of staff and policy director to the Senate's second-ranking Republican.
