Compliance Manager

Steve Hinton

Why PASS?  The first thing that struck me after being introduced to the PASS office was the sense of family. The support and teamwork from the entire office makes for a great work atmosphere.

My back ground  I spent over 15 years working in the PAC/grassroots/advocacy arena for two national trade associations and before joining PASS I worked at a boutique compliance firm. I enjoyed the diversity of the work and the dynamics of a focused staff and a dedicated membership working towards the same goals on the local, state and national level. I also took advantage of a unique opportunity and spent several years as part of a small team getting a new alcohol distributor established in the Capitol region.

About me B.A, Political Science, University of Colorado, Boulder. Steve is originally from Denver and currently lives in Alexandria, VA with his wife, daughter and their two dogs. Steve joined PASS in 2019.
