Bio, via LinkedIn:

I am a lawyer with significant management, public relations, and government affairs experience. During my 30 year career in Washington, D.C., I have advocated on a variety of public policy issues while serving in government, corporate, and association environments. I have held senior positions in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. I have practices law and have worked for three major corporations and two national trade associations. Advocacy, public relations, strategic planning, financial management, and grassroots/coalition building are among my areas of expertise. I have developed a broad range of communication skills that enable me to effectively communicate and interact with a diverse group of individuals. Through speeches, presentations, newsletters, and electronic media, I’m effective in engaging members and growing membership. I was successful in raising millions of dollars from business executives and employees to fund two of the nation’s largest corporate PACs. I was appointed by the USDA Secretary to manage the USDA’s 2005 Combined Federal Campaign, raising more than $2 million in volunteer contributions in four months for charitable organizations, setting a USDA record.

Bio, via Bloomberg:

The Labor Department appointed Steven Begakis, a recent law school graduate with an interest in natural law and religious liberty, as a Wage and Hour Division policy adviser, a DOL official confirmed to Bloomberg Law. Begakis becomes the third political appointee thus far in the Trump White House at the DOL agency responsible for enforcing and regulating federal minimum wage, overtime, and family leave laws. He reported for duty last week, according to the official. Begakis joins the WHD as it works through multiple concurrent regulatory and policy priorities in the queue even before the Senate confirmation of the agency’s top official. The division is in the midst of writing a new rule to update workers’ eligibility for time-and-a-half overtime pay, along with three other regulations on the agenda. The WHD has also rolled out initiatives to encourage employers to self-report past violations and to respond to management requests for opinion letters that provide legal clarity. The 2016 Notre Dame Law School graduate has a LinkedIn profile listing affiliations with a range of conservative legal groups, such as the Federalist Society, the Claremont Institute, and the Alliance Defending Freedom. ADF is a Christian nonprofit known for defending businesses accused of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.
