New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) January 12, 2011

Empire Government Strategies, New York State’s third fastest growing government relations firm, has added three distinguished government relations professionals to its working group and will be providing expanded services in both Albany and Washington, D.C., according to Arthur “Jerry” Kremer, EGS President.

“I am pleased that we will be able to provide assistance to our clients in Washington D.C. having added Joshua Lamel and Jeff Lande, and the addition of Alfredo Vidal, President of the Vidal Group located in Albany,” Kremer stated.

Joshua Lamel has served as a Chief of Staff to a member of U.S. Congress and was Legislative Counsel to Senator Ron Wyden. He has played a key role in the adoption of many major tax legislation, the Federal budget and telecommunications issues. Before joining the Empire team, Joshua was Senior Vice President of Commercial Policy and Government Affairs at TechAmerica, a trade group that represents major high-tech and e-commerce businesses.

Jeff Lande has 25 years of public policy and industry experience in technology, immigration, economic development, education, and domestic and foreign policy issues. He has worked with the Departments’ of State and Commerce as well as the Office of Thrift Supervision and is frequently quoted in the media on major policy issues. Jeff is the former Executive Vice President of TechAmerica in Washington, D.C.

Alfredo Vidal is well known to the Latino community based on years of activity in behalf of a number of major organizations. He played an active role in several government agencies and in former Governor Cuomo's office. He has provided representation to the Partnership of New York City, Eli Lilly and major real estate developers.

“We are proud of this dramatic expansion of our business activities and feel that these added resources will give our clients the most comprehensive government relations services available,” Mr. Kremer added.

“We believe that our honesty with clients and our work ethic has contributed to the growth and success of Empire,” said Anthony Figliola, Vice President of Empire.

Empire Government Strategies was founded by the Hon. Arthur Jerry Kremer, a 23-year veteran of the New York State Assembly and former Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Empire is co-managed by Anthony M. Figliola, Vice President of EGS and former Deputy Supervisor for the Town of Brookhaven, one of the nation’s largest municipal governments.

EGS maintains fully staffed offices in Albany, Washington D.C., New York, and on Long Island. EGS was recently named the third fastest growing lobbying firm in New York State, by the New York Public Interest Research Group. Our approach to servicing clients is different from the traditional lobbying firm.
