Drew Donaher, Government Relations Associate
As Government Relations Associate, Drew assists the Merchant McIntyre team with client service, research regarding federal grants programs, and daily agency operations.
Drew's passion for serving others aligns perfectly with Merchant McIntyre's commitment to our clients. To wit: William Wordsworth famously wrote, "The child is father of the man." As a youngster, Drew told his mom, "I want to grow up to become a professional door opener." Bemused, his mother replied, "Why? Because of the tips?" "No," Drew said, "I want to help other people."
Prior to joining Merchant McIntyre, Drew served in as a Legislative Intern for Congressman Charles W. Dent, Congressman Matthew Cartwright, and Senator Robert P. Casey Jr. In these positions, Drew handled constituent communications and familiarized himself with the federal budget process.
A native of Bethlehem, PA, Drew received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University, majoring in International Affairs with a concentration in Security Policy. Drew's academic career focused on counterterrorism, nuclear security, and the intelligence community.
