About Chad Heinrich

The company's principal, Chad Heinrich, is a public affairs professional with over seventeen years of experience. With Heinrich Public Affairs as your government and public affairs partner, you will have the value of relationships and experience for direct lobbying at the state and local levels, combined with the ability to execute multi-state public affairs strategies.

Prior to launching Heinrich Public Affairs, Chad led government affairs strategy in twenty-two states for the University of Phoenix. By leveraging teams in these states, Chad crafted relationship-building and policy-development strategies to advocate for and defeat legislation that had the potential to impact the University of Phoenix. Through this experience, Chad honed his knowledge of not only Arizona lobbying laws, but lobbying activities across the United States.

Early in his career, while serving as Deputy Secretary of State in South Dakota, Chad was recognized as one of only forty promising state leaders in the country through a fellowship with the Council of State Governments. This fellowship allowed Chad to develop government and public affairs experience at the state level early on in his career.
