Plano, with a 2012 population of over 270,000, is a prosperous place. In 2008, the City received national attention as being the nation’s Most Affluent City and Best City to Create Wealth. JCPenney, Pizza Hut, Frito-Lay, and Rent-A-Center are all headquartered in Plano. Several technology giants have major R&D operations here including Texas Instruments, Ericsson, McAfee, CA, Intuit and Alcatel-Lucent. These companies attract highly skilled workers from throughout the US and abroad.


The City of Plano hired Lobbyit in the Spring of 2012 with the goal of increasing our presence in DC. The value of our new relationship was quickly evident when we were successful in getting a bill on a critical issue passed through Congress. Paul and Nile have proven to have strong relationships with staff, committees, Congressmen and Senators and are focused on building long term relationships. Their team is attentive and responsive to the City’s information needs and agenda and our increased presence in DC is due in large part to the assistance of Lobbyit.
