Few people in Washington can match the depth of knowledge Doug Gregory has of the Appropriations process – particularly when it comes to defense and national security issues. For 12 years, Doug served as the key professional staff member for the House Appropriations Committee handling military spending accounts, including for the U.S. Special Operations Command. Providing critical support for our warfighters, Doug has been honored with the Special Operations Command Medal, the Distinguished Public Service Award from the Secretary of the Navy, and the Under Secretary of Defense Award for Excellence for his work as a congressional staffer.
As a Vice President at Van Scoyoc Associates, Doug provides strategic counsel to both large defense contractors fighting for critical dollars during constrained budgets, and small, entrepreneurial companies helping to revolutionize the way the Pentagon does business. Having been part of the debate for decades, Doug is well respected by Members of Congress and their staffs, and sought after for advice on critical issues.
The only thing closer to Doug’s heart than the U.S. military may be his native state of Florida. Having served as Congressman C.W. “Bill” Young’s Chief of Staff for 24 years, working for the interests of the Sunshine State, Doug’s relationships cover the state and cross party lines. A tireless advocate for the interests of all Floridians, Doug is a wealth of knowledge on local issues important to community leaders.
Interested in politics from an early age, Doug has been involved in a wide range of local, state, and national political events, including Republican presidential campaigns. Doug is a native of St. Petersburg Florida, and a graduate of Florida State University.
