Lobbying: Diane Major
After recruiting health care companies for Van Heuvelen Strategies the past two years, former Republican aide Diane Major has opened her own health care consulting firm, The D. Major Group, and brought the clients with her. They include drugmaker Actavis, trade groups, nonprofit health systems and CVS Caremark. In addition to setting up traditional lobbying meetings, Major advises companies on health care policy and whom the firms should send as witnesses to congressional hearings. Major, 46, is also a part-time partner at the lobbying and strategy firm Total Spectrum / Steve Gordon and Associates, helping to develop business in Arizona. Major knows the state well, having worked for Republican Sen. Jon Kyl from 2003 to 2005.
