John McManus identified as one of  “The Hill’s Top Lobbyists of 2021”

Welcome to The Hill’s annual list of top lobbyists.

K Street played an outsized role in this year’s policy debates, working behind the scenes to reshape the COVID-19 relief package, bipartisan infrastructure bill and Democrats’ climate and social spending plan. The transfer of power following the 2020 election — along with trillions of dollars in new federal spending and proposals to transform various sectors of the economy — sparked a lobbying boom in Washington. 

In one of the busiest years on record for the D.C. influence world, these are the people who wielded their connections and knowledge most effectively for their clients. The list highlights the broad range of talents needed to achieve success in the industry. 

John McManus identified as one of Modern Healthcare’s “30 for the Future”

Modern Healthcare published a special issue in August 2006 entitled, “Celebrating 30 Years: The people, events and innovations that shape healthcare: A look at the past, present and future.” The issue identified John McManus as one of the “30 For the Future,” the 30 people “who could have a powerful impact on healthcare.” The list also included Senator Hillary Clinton, Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Governor Mitt Romney, and Senator Barack Obama. McManus was the only health care consultant on the list.
