In leading a staff of almost 70, Gary Andres says he gets the best of all the previous jobs he’s held throughout his career.

“Being staff director gives me the opportunity to take a lot of things I learned—politics, press, and policy—and integrate all of them into one job,” he said.

The Chicago native has impressive conservative credentials. He started his Washington career in 1984 as an energy-policy aide on the committee before joining George H.W. Bush’s White House as the deputy assistant to the president for legislative affairs in the House.

 

There, he developed close working relationships—and friendships—with many GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, the man who’s now his boss (he has known the chairman for 24 years), and now-Speaker John Boehner of Ohio. Andres also expressed his conservative voice in national publications throughout his time as a lobbyist for Dutko Worldwide.

Andres, 58, enjoys running in his spare time. “I try to run my three miles a day,” he said, adding with a subdued smile, “I used to go farther.”
