Former Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) Manager of External Affairs Brendan Schubert has joined Triad Strategies, a Harrisburg-based lobbying and strategic communications firm. He will be an associate located in Triad’s Pittsburgh office, servicing clients all across the Commonwealth.
“Brendan brings solid relationships, a keen understanding of economic development in various levels of government, and a unique skill set combing government affairs and strategic communications,” said Triad President Roy Wells.
Brendan’s background prior to PWSA includes a position with the City of Pittsburgh’s Planning Department, working on special projects and the zoning board cases, which included intense development of the Golden Triangle, the Strip District, South Side and the North Shore. He also worked with the State House of Representatives as a legislative assistant from 2006 to 2007. His focus was primarily policy and the administration of state grants.
“It has been a pleasure working with Brendan Schubert. He has done an excellent job for PWSA and their customers, and has always been very responsive to the needs of my constituents,” Allegheny County Delegation Chair Dom Costa said “His integrity is beyond reproach. PWSA has some big shoes to fill. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors, and look forward to working with him again in his new career.“
"I have known Brendan through his professional career and his family,” State Rep. Hal English said. “ I am looking forward to working with him in his new role at Triad."
“Brendan resides in my senatorial district, and I have known him for many years,” State Senator Wayne D. Fontana added. “He has always been a dedicated public servant, and his strong work ethic will serve his clients well as he moves into this new role.”
Brendan is a lifelong resident of the City of Pittsburgh. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Social Science from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree in Public Management from Carnegie Mellon. He also is very active in his community as the vice president for the Brighton Heights Citizens Federation and a former board member for Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh.
