Robert Shea, principal of the strategy practice within Grant Thornton’s public sector arm, has been promoted to national managing principal for public policy in a move that takes effect Aug. 1.

He will lead the professional services firm's political action committee and act as the company liaison to Congress in addition to performing his current responsibilities, Grant Thornton said Monday.

In his expanded role, Shea will represent the company on accountancy-related policy discussions with regulators, standards-setters and policymakers.

He will replace Mary Moore Hamrick, who is due to retire by the end of Grant Thornton's current fiscal year.

Prior to joining the company in 2010, Shea spent six years as associate director of the Office of Management and Budget where he led large-scale personnel reform efforts for the departments of Homeland Security and Defense.

His more than two-decade career also includes time as chairman of the National Academy of Public Administration, member of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking, senior management counsel at the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee and staff member at the House Government Reform Committee.
