David Stewart is a principal and the co-chair of the global Public Policy Practice Group, who provides strategic advice to a wide range of high-profile corporations, organizations and sovereign government clients, with an emphasis on long-range strategic planning and taxation, as well as national and economic security including artificial intelligence, data privacy and cybersecurity.

Previously, David served as the majority staff director to the US House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means, during which time he was critical to the successful enactment of two high-profile tax bills. David served as the chief staff negotiator for the House of Representatives with the Obama administration on the 2015 PATH Act (permanence of “tax extenders”) and with the US Senate, National Economic Council and Treasury Department on the 2017 tax reform legislation (Tax Cuts and Jobs Act).

Prior to the Committee on Ways and Means, David served as policy director to Speaker of the House John Boehner, where he designed and orchestrated long-term legislative and oversight strategies to achieve the goals of congressional Republicans. During this time, David played key roles in the passage of free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea, as well as high-profile budget and fiscal negotiations with the Obama administration, including the Balanced Budget Act of 2015.

David took a leave of absence from the office of the speaker to become the economic policy director to Governor Mitt Romney and the Romney for President campaign in 2012. He assumed additional responsibilities to serve as the policy director to vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan, traveling with the candidate daily through election day. David would later assist Paul and his staff in their transition into the speakership as Speaker Boehner retired from Congress.

Beginning public service on the staff of Rep. Phil English (R-PA), David held a variety of roles during his eight-year tenure with the office. He focused exclusively on policy issues before the House Committee on Ways and Means – of which Rep. English was a member – including taxation, international trade and social entitlements.

David graduated with distinction from San Diego State University. He resides in Washington DC.
