Caught Our Eye
Stanley Black & Decker, the hardware and industrial-tools manufacturer, is finally taking the do-it-yourself approach: The Fortune 500 company recently disclosed its first-ever in-house lobbying work.
SBD's sole declared lobbyist is Greg Polk, who joined the company this summer after nearly a decade as a lobbyist for TE Connectivity (formerly Tyco Electronics). He's representing he company on energy pipelines, table-saw safety standards and tax reform, among other issues.
SBD, formed from a 2010 merger between Stanley Works and Black & Decker, also lobbies through contracts with Squire Patton Boggs, K&L Gates and Williams & Jensen.
