Donald Grady Joins IDFA’s Legislative Team

Mar 07, 2018

IDFA this week welcomed Donald Grady to its legislative affairs team. In his new position, Grady will advocate for IDFA’s legislative policies and objectives with policymakers and other stakeholders, as well as assist with developing IDFA’s legislative goals and strategies.

He comes to IDFA from the office of U.S. Representative Jim Costa (D-Calif.) where Grady served as a legislative assistant. He coordinated and managed all legislative efforts and constituent services related to the agriculture industry and the House Agriculture Committee.

Before that, he was a legislative correspondent for U.S. Representative Jim Marshall (D-Ga.). Grady earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Denison University.

“We are excited to have Donald join our legislative affairs team,” said Dave Carlin, senior vice president of legislative affairs and economic policy. “His experience in the House of Representatives and the California delegation will add a new and welcome dimension to our ongoing advocacy efforts.”

Grady will support the efforts of IDFA’s legislative team, which is led by Carlin. Other legislative team members are Tony Eberhard, vice president of legislative affairs; Beth Hughes, director of international affairs; Colin Newman, manager of legislative affairs and political programs; and Katie Solomon, coordinator of legislative affairs.

Members may contact Grady at or at 202-220-3524.
