Journey to White House & US Congress

He began his obsession with politics and how public policy affects all Americans at The American University in Washington, DC. He graduated The American University with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science in 1984. Dhillon quickly moved on government, working with US Congressman Bob Matsui, eventually rising to Chief of Staff on Matsui’s staff in 1988. Early in 1993, Dhillon moved from Capitol Hill to the White House, when he was appointed be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Government Affairs at the United States Department of Transportation by President Bill Clinton. It wasn’t long before he caught the President’s eye. Clinton officially recognized him as the top Asian American appointee in a White House ceremony, also in 1993.

After his stint in the White House, he moved into an illustrious career in the private sector. He started at the American Academy of Actuaries, where he worked as the Director of Media and Public Affairs. The American Academy of Actuaries is a Washington, DC-based professional association consisting of over 18,000 members. From 1998 until 2004, he was the Senior Vice President of Hill & Knowlton International Public Relations. During his six years with this lobbying and governmental affairs firm, it won “Agency of the Year” six times.

Thirty Years of Political Experience

He has spent the last thirty years of his life on the political scene in Washington, DC. He currently works as a lobbyist and general consultant for NA Consulting Services. He entered the private sector in 2008, when he became the Senior Vice President at Hill & Knowlton, a global consulting firm with offices and clients all over the world. Under his leadership, Hill & Knowlton was named “Agency of the Year” six years in a row.

Neil DhillonDhillon made the news recently when he correctly predicted the Republican Party would retake control of the United States Senate and strengthen its majority in the House of Representatives in the 2014 midterms. His prediction was unpopular at the time, six months before the elections, but he cited recent history and President Obama’s approval rating. Dhillon says that the President’s opposition party usually saw a boost in the legislative branch, especially during the second term of a presidency.

The late US Congressman from California Bob Matsui hired Dhillon as his Chief of Staff in 1988, a position he stayed with until 1993, when President Bill Clinton chose him to be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Government Affairs within the United States Department of Transportation. Clinton quickly realized he had a world-class talent, and recognized Dhillon as one of the top Asian American political appointees at a ceremony in the White House.  Neil Dhillon

The American Academy of Actuaries is a Washington, DC-based professional association with around 18,000 members, including consultants, corporate executives, regulators, government officials, academics, and retired actuaries.

Seeing the Future

He doesn’t need a crystal ball to see the future. His close study of recent and distant history and his finger on the pulse of both the legislative and executive branches of government are enough for him to predict elections. Dhillon currently works as a Global Public Affairs consultant with NA Consulting Services with thirty years of political experience behind him. From 1988 to 1993, Dhillon served as the Chief of Staff for the late US Congressman from California Bob Matsui. Shortly after President Bill Clinton appointed him to the post of Deputy Assistant Secretary of Government Affairs for the US Department Transportation, President Clinton recognized him as one of the top Asian American appointees at a special White House ceremony.

Dhillon correctly predicted the Republican victory in the US Senate last November, even when other advisors and analysts didn’t agree. He also correctly predicted that the GOP would strengthen its majority in the House of Representatives. He made both of these predictions six months before Election Day.

Neil Dhillon believes in public service as an instrument of an effective representative Democracy, such as our own. Even though he has since moved from the public sector to the private sector, he still carries that fundamental notion that committed citizens in an open system like this one we’re lucky enough to have in the US can achieve anything.

Lobbyist and Strategist

He is a Global Public Affairs professional and lobbyist with a background in insider political knowledge. He has been in the war rooms of big time politicians such as former Congressman from California Bob Matsui as his Chief of Staff. He was appointed to Senior Aide by former President Bill Clinton. Today, he works for the illustrious NA Consulting Services firm, specializing in strategic management, public affairs and advocacy, legislative affairs, and media and crises communications. He strives to provide his clients at NA Consulting with insight on long-term legislative processes, regulatory reform, and using public opinion to influence policy leaders.

In a special White House ceremony in 1993, President Bill Clinton cited Dhillon as one of his best Asian American political appointees. Dhillon received such an honor because of his dedication and hard-working nature. He used his time in the White House to gain a familiarity with how the executive branch works and the effects of bureaucracy and Presidential politics on individuals as well as companies. The Indian American community considers him a leader because of his high position in the national political scene.

Serious Political Advisor

In his thirty years in the political game, Neil Dhillon has seen it all. He has worked as the Chief of Staff for the late US Congressman from California, Bob Matsui, and as Senior Aide to former President Bill Clinton. He knows the ins and outs of public policy and regulatory and legislative strategy. He currently uses his political expertise for powerful clients with NA Consulting in Washington, DC.

Neil Dhillon used his extensive experience in national politics to correctly predict the outcome of last year’s midterm elections. Dhillon saw that President Obama’s approval rating had slipped to a new low earlier that year and knows from experience that opposition to the president from any political party can score easy points with voters. The result of these forces, which Dhillon has become familiar with during his thirty years in big politics, was a Republican majority in the Senate and a strengthening of their majority in House of Representatives.

Dhillon was right, of course. In November of last year, the Republicans regained control of the Senate, something they hadn’t accomplished since 2006. Dhillon also saw that the redrawing of some districts also lent itself to a Republican victory. The GOP also strengthened its grip on the House of Representatives.
