Joe Foley

     Mr. Foley, Senior Associate and President of the company, was Legislative Floor Assistant in the U.S. House of Representatives for a Member of Congress who chaired the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.  This Subcommittee annually funds the US Department of Defense, the US Energy Department’s nuclear weapons programs, and the entire US Intelligence Community.  While on Capitol Hill, he also worked on various energy, environmental, transportation, trade, and defense-related programs with Congressional Leadership and their staff on the House Floor.  In this position, Mr. Foley devised a unique parliamentary strategy that overturned and then amended a Conference Report on Amtrak appropriations.  That tactic added $60 million to the transportation budget that year for national rail transit needs. 

     From this position in the U.S. Congress, Mr. Foley joined the Executive branch as a member of a White House Congressional Affairs team.  He lobbied for Administration initiatives before the U.S. Senate and House such as the oil back-out allowance to advance national energy independence and measures related to military readiness in the wake of the Russian invasion of Afghanistan.  Later at the Federal Emergency Management Agency - now part of the Department of Homeland Security - he successfully promoted bills in Congress on domestic fire safety, hazardous materials accident mitigation, disaster assistance, and the contracting-out of Federal services for private sector bid.  One of his projects was a successful amendment that added $150 million for greater purchases of copper and other critical materials for the nation’s strategic resources stockpile during US Senate debate on the annual Treasury Department Appropriations Bill. 

     Foley Inc. has supported the Croatian American community in Washington for over 25 years.  During this time, Mr. Foley has been involved in the promotion of three bilateral Treaties through the US Senate.  These Treaties include the ratification of full NATO membership for the Republic of Croatia in 2008 and an Avoidance of Double Taxation Treaty during 2012-24.  

     In pursuit of these and related legislative matters, Mr. Foley drove the founding of the current 25+ member Congressional Croatian Caucus in 2005 and its re-launch in each subsequent Congress since.  The Caucus was instrumental in the successful drive for Croatia’s full accession into NATO.  The multilateral efforts required for the NATO Treaty’s ratification in the US Senate involved working with the diplomatic and intel communities in Washington, NATO offices in Brussels, and various European nation-state foreign ministries.

     Mr. Foley holds a Master of Arts degree in International Trade and Development from American University’s School of International Service in Washington, D.C.  His Bachelor of Arts degree is in History from Elon University, North Carolina.  He has given lectures on Congress, the Presidency, and the legislative process as an Adjunct Professor at American University and at several other colleges and universities, including the Universities of Maryland and North Carolina.  Mr. Foley was also a candidate for the Maryland State Legislature in Annapolis.
