Our Approach

Government Affairs, Public Affairs, and Public Policy

The Markham Group understands the issues and their impact. We know the decision makers and how to navigate the ever-changing political and public policy landscape with purpose, and we’re driven to get results. We offer comprehensive public affairs strategies along with active engagement and insight into the legislative and administrative processes of the Congress and U.S. government. We leverage decades of experience and expertise, working through a professional and bipartisan manner and providing you a measured approach for success in Washington.

Additionally, we have strong and longstanding relationships with key business associations and stakeholders in several sectors including but not limited to: aviation, transportation, infrastructure, healthcare, cybersecurity, technology and investment. Building industry coalitions can be a very effective advocacy tool for facilitating additional business development opportunities while promoting Infineon’s thought leadership in U.S. policies. A true measure of success for any government relations and public affairs strategy involves a multi-dimensional approach of representation and advocacy. Business engagement with government officials is critical to understanding the impact of public policies that affect corporate performance and commercial strategy.

German American Aviation Heritage Foundation

The German American Aviation Heritage Foundation (GAAHF) was founded in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) by Deutsche Lufthansa AG to focus on this mission: to honor and celebrate the important friendship between Germany and the United States, to commemorate our joint legacy in historic aviation and aerospace achievements, and to inspire all generations about the fascination and dynamic accomplishments of our past while sharing the many future possibilities in aviation and aerospace industries. GAAHF is a Washington, DC-based not-for-profit organization that endeavors to embrace and foster our strong German and American roots in a meaningful way while embracing our aviation heritage and enlightening the future aviators, engineers and travelers of tomorrow. From the very first steps of this endeavor, the Markham Group has worked to establish every aspect of bringing this important mission to our followers around the world. We are proud the motto we created for GAAHF: "Preserving and honoring joint German and American aviation traditions and heritage and rediscovering the fascination of the early days of passenger flight.”
