THE COLUMBIA GROUP    We help clients build relationships, solve problems, and secure lasting agreements.  Our skill set centers on three areas of expertise:  

  • Government affairs at all levels of government, including tribal nation relations;
  • Project development and advocacy specific to the rail and logistics industry; and
  • Technical assistance with rail infrastructure, operations, facilities, real estate, and right-of-way issues.
Let’s talk about the issues you’re facing and the solutions you seek.

A REFRESHING APPROACH    Our approach is to listen and learn the client’s needs, develop an approach that aligns expectations and results, tailor the strategy to ensure that outcomes are understood and measurable, and ensure that progress and results are communicated timely. We’ll work with you to tailor a working agreement that meets your needs and expectations. We offer a monthly retainer for ongoing support, or a project-oriented agreement that’s tied to completion of specific goals, timeframes, or milestones reached.

A GROWING CUSTOMER BASE    The Columbia Group has established a strong base of outstanding clients, including multiple railroad holding companies, a national construction company, a regional commercial real estate developer, international engineering firms, Wall Street equity investors, and one of the nation’s largest food retailers.
