Amanda Fisher, who was recently promoted to State Director of NFIB in Michigan, was chosen by Crain’s Detroit Business as one of “50 Lobbyist to Know.”
According to Crain’s, this list was chosen out of more than 1400 registered lobbyists and is a “selection of professionals representing trade groups, major corporations, law firms and multiclient firms. ‘The tiles’ — which are, yes, literally the lobby — are where these professionals in the persuasion business stake out each day, waiting to get some face time with a senator or representative.”
The article goes on to say, “Why she should be on your speed dial: Amanda is among just a handful of lobbyists at the Capitol whose sole focus is the interests of small and family-owned businesses. She started at the National Federation of Independent Business 20 years ago, working on grassroots advocacy for entrepreneurs in Michigan and six other states.” The rest of the article can be viewed HERE (unfortunately, there is a paywall).
“I am humbled to be recognized by Crain’s and to be included with other outstanding professionals working at the Capitol,” said Fisher. “It is truly an honor to represent small business owners in Lansing and to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate, and grow their businesses.”
