Who We Are
In 2005, as Congressman Mike Conaway was just weeks into his 16-year tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, Scott Graves joined his staff, and the beginning of their partnership was formed. Mike rose through the ranks in his House Committee assignments, serving as chairman of both the House Committees on Agriculture and the House Ethics Committee. Mike also held various leadership roles on the Armed Services, Intelligence, and Budget committees throughout his Congressional tenure. Meanwhile, Scott held progressively senior leadership roles becoming Mike’s Chief of Staff and ultimately Staff Director at the House Agriculture Committee.
Mike and Scott share a family-like bond built on a foundation of mutual respect and trust. Throughout their years working together on Capitol Hill, this teamwork resulted in a diverse set of policy, political, and organizational goals.
Mike’s natural leadership was widely recognized by colleagues and House leadership. He remains a well-liked, well-respected Member of Congress by colleagues and constituents alike. Likewise, Scott earned a reputation on Capitol Hill for his keen ability to form strategic relationships and coalitions, to conceptualize and construct exemplary teams, and execute a plan. It was the joint effort of capitalizing on each other’s strengths while maintaining a clear vision that resulted in consistent, continued success.
Their years of combined efforts in the House of Representatives paved the way for this unique new partnership. The founding of Conaway Graves Group is a natural progression of Mike and Scott’s unified vision for legislative success on Capitol Hill and their continued desire to make an impact.
