Andy Blocker knows Washington. A longtime advocate with a history of providing market-focused advice while working in Congress, the White House, and the private sector, Blocker heads up government affairs for Invesco Ltd, an independent investment-management company. 

After graduating from Harvard, Blocker began his career in the public sector, serving as a legislative assistant, a budget analyst for the Senate Budget Committee, and special assistant to the president under Bill Clinton. Drawing on his background, Blocker emphasizes the need for bipartisan cooperation in policymaking. As a veteran of the Clinton White House, he has experience working across the aisle.

After his time in government, Blocker transitioned to the private sector, joining American Airlines in 1998 and subsequently holding several high-profile government-affairs positions, including vice president of government relations for the New York Stock Exchange. He also picked up his MBA from Georgetown University School of Business in 2002.

Now, as head of government affairs, Blocker coordinates Invesco’s legislative and regulatory advocacy initiatives, and he engages with everyone from clients and policymakers to the media in highlighting efforts to understand public policy developments.
