This is who we are.

Our people come from a wide range of political and professional backgrounds. As individuals, they bring special skills, broad knowledge, and significant relationships to their work. As a group, there is no greater force in Pennsylvania politics.

Benjamin Dannels Senior Associate

Ben is a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania, and his roots in York County and his family’s insurance business run deep.  His knowledge and love of local politics brought him to Greenlee Partners, first as an intern and then after a stint at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, back in 2016, as an associate working on a wide variety of issue areas including health care, the environment and insurance.

His work on environmental issues both at the Bay Foundation and later with the Coalition for an Affordable Bay Solution utilized his unique talents for bringing adverse interests together to talk about solutions that are in the best interests of all Pennsylvanians.  

His day-to-day responsibilities also include client management and lobbying disclosure compliance for the firm’s clients which gives him a unique opportunity to work with all of our clients and their varied interests.

He also manages the political action committee for a large state-based client that serves as a model for their political action committee activities in other jurisdictions.  

Politics is the process through which the most difficult and consequential decisions are made. We’re here to make that process a little easier.
