Former New York Republican Congressman John Katko has signed on as a senior advisor at HillEast Group, the DC-based government affairs shop.

One of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, Katko retired from Congress in 2022.

Elected in 2015, Katko served as ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee and led efforts to secure the US border and pushed for cybersecurity measures.

He also was a member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and chair of the Republican Governance Group.

Prior to Congress, Katko spent 20 years as a federal organized crime prosecutor handling drug and human trafficking, murder and political corruption cases.

Brad Gentile, who founded HillEast in 2017, had served as Katko’s chief of staff.
