Compass Government Relations Partners

Compass Government Relations Partners is the Mid-Atlantic’s premier government relations team. Founded in 2018 by Hannah Powers Garagiola, a preeminent Maryland lobbyist; she recruited a team of partners that can reach every level of elected and administrative office in Maryland, Delaware, and DC federal and local government.


Compass represents Fortune 500 corporations, trade associations, and nonprofits in nearly all sectors. However, our team has extensive expertise in education, renewable energy, healthcare, information technology procurement, and transportation.


The Partners’ believe that an effective representation of clients depends on more than relationships with elected officials. It is founded and dependent on their ability to understand client issues at an expert level and use that expertise to educate legislators. Compass representation is rooted in a team approach that pairs clients with partners that have the subject matter expertise and relationships to create and execute tailormade legislative strategies. That is the Compass Promise.
