Brad Schlueter

Principal

Brad Schlueter joined the Schlueter Group in 2017 during the 85th Interim under the tutelage of Stan Schlueter and associates after leaving behind a long corporate career with a Fortune 500 company in the areas of Finance, Mergers & Acquisitions, Operations Management, Product Development and as a corporate PAC board member.

By the 86th Legislative Session Brad was advocating on behalf of heavily-regulated consumer products, Property & Casualty insurance (P&C), Healthcare insurance, and municipalities dealing with the acute impact of unfunded state mandates.  He was also focused on agency procurement, corporate and local taxation, state fiscal programs, and policy areas such as the Opioid epidemic, veterans issues, navigating political subdivisions’ regulation of small business and the Texas Medicaid program. 

In the 87th session Brad worked extensively with the Office of the Governor to curb counties’ overuse of local disaster authority to protect small businesses.  In addition to engaging deeply into the vast policy areas of healthcare and P&C insurance, Brad also worked to protect Texas’ military mission by supporting programs that boost military readiness and that support the quality of life in the communities surrounding Texas military installations.  He also worked to strengthen and protect the health of the pension fund for a local first responder association.

In the 88th session Brad and his SGT associates were able to pass two bills: one pertaining to local planning & zoning and a novel prescription opioid /drug disposal pilot program.  Brad worked extensively on a bill dealing with the disproportionate impact of specific property tax exemptions on certain local governments that made it to conference but the author refused to concur and the bill died. 

 

He worked with the Texas Workforce Commission and legislative leadership to promote available, alternative child care models in response to the child care scarcity crisis in Texas.  Also, Brad worked alongside a broad stakeholder group to implement a solution to improving the state’s abysmal recycling rates.  Maybe most importantly, Brad and SGT were able to kill a number of the >8,000 bills filed.

Since 2019, Brad has served on the Board of Directors of the Westgate Condominium Association.

Prior to joining the Schlueter Group, Brad served 12 years at Trinity Industries, ultimately leading the Finance and Business Development functions for Trinity Highway Products, Trinity Highway Rentals, and Trinity Shoring Products, driving M&A opportunities, integrating acquisitions and leading organic growth initiatives.  He directed the Finance & Analytics team in providing Financial Planning & Analysis and operational oversight.

In overseeing all stages of the manufacturing & industrial services business cycle from ‘greenfield’ operations to plant closures to right-sizing business units, Brad has experience in private enterprise and its relationship with local and state government.

Brad also served as a board member for Trinity Industries’ employee Political Action Committee (TIEPAC) 2013-2017, representing Trinity at political events, meeting with state and federal legislators, and doling out PAC contributions.
