Harry Glenn

Vice President

Clients come to Harry Glenn for his keen understanding of the appropriations and legislative process.   He spent more than three decades working in the House of Representative including 19 years as the Chief of Staff to a former Chairman of the Appropriations Committee.  From that unique position, Harry worked on projects involving all 12 of the appropriations subcommittees, and developed the ability to translate the goals of clients into legislative successes.

Putting that know-how to use as a Vice President at Van Scoyoc Associates, Harry is a valued resource to a diverse set of clients – from small companies and local communities to large corporations and national organizations.  He specializes in the areas of national security, biomedical research and health care, education, infrastructure, and the unique needs of communities and public entities.  Both on and off the Hill, Harry has developed a reputation as someone who is able to work in a bipartisan manner to achieve results.  The National Marrow Donor Program honored Harry with its Congressional Award for providing outstanding legislative support for the program.  

As a journalism major and former press secretary, Harry understands the importance of a good story and helps clients create compelling messages to take their case to Members of Congress and Federal Agency officials.  In 2013, the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association gave Harry its Congressional Staff Member of the Year Award “for his efforts both to promote beach preservation and to facilitate project requests.”
