Matt Kussow

I am a professional lobbyist based in Madison, Wisconsin with over 25 years of experience in state and federal relations.

My resume includes over a decade as chief-of-staff for the Wisconsin legislature’s Joint Finance Committee; eight years as executive director of government relations for two, non-profit associations, including one start-up; Director of Government Affairs for the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and a private consultant since 2018.

I rely on hard work and strong, bipartisan relationships to communicate with lawmakers. My legislative experience provides me with a deep understanding of government programs and processes and the knowledge to negotiate complex legislative solutions in a timely manner.  My political contacts can be a valuable asset for communicating your message.

When I’m not at the capitol, you can probably find me hiking a trail, chasing my adult sons down a slope or traveling life with my wife, Michelle.
