About the McDonnell Group

The McDonnell Group was created in 2016 by Governor Bob McDonnell and his sister, Maureen McDonnell. We started with one client, a close friend of ours, which we have been doing business with for years, and grew into a large business development consulting firm. We quickly grew our staff, along with our skill-set to accommodate these new clients and we have been successful in our endeavors so far. We began with business development/expansion, helping clients grow their business into new industries and or expand their presence in their current industry, but now we serve several clients, doing everything from government relations & lobbying, all the way to web development and design.
