Ben Siegrist joins OOIDA as the assistant director of legislative affairs in the Washington, DC, office.
Before coming on board, Siegrist worked on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, working with both the presidential and vice presidential candidate teams.
Siegrist became familiar with OOIDA when he worked as a government relations specialist for a large public affairs firm, the DCI Group. In addition to private sector work, he also was a member of former Sen. Jim DeMint’s staff.
“We are excited to welcome Ben into our DC office,” said OOIDA Director of Government Affairs Laura O’Neill. “He offers the perfect blend of personality and policy experience that is a welcome addition. I look forward to the new doors he will open for the issues faced by America’s small-business truckers.” LL
