About Us

Capitol Strategies was created to provide strategic, broad-based, multi-disciplinary services in today's challenging public affairs and federal government relations landscape.

The firm integrates all relevant communications disciplines into comprehensive client solutions, and provides the same high-level strategic counsel, focused attention and personal service that one expects from a senior in-house professional.

Steven W. Bloch, the firm’s president, has more than 20 years of corporate, government and consulting experience.  He has served in senior staff positions in the state legislature, as legal counsel, legislative director and chief of staff in the U.S. Congress, and director of government relations and vice president of communications for Honeywell Aerospace, one of Arizona’s largest private employers.  Steve was also managing director of strategic communications in Arizona’s largest public affairs firm.    

To achieve the high level of service for which the firm is known, Capitol Strategies limits the number of client engagements at any one time.  Consulting for a small number of clients avoids potential conflicts of interest and allows clear, undiluted client communications to stakeholders.  

Capitol Strategies also has the ability to quickly scale-up resources to meet project demands.  Our Strategic Alliance Network, which includes former Congressman Jim Kolbe, consists of a select group of leading national consultants who can be brought together with the precise skills, structure and resources necessary to achieve unique client objectives.  Like the conductor of a symphony orchestra, Capitol Strategies brings together talented, individual performers working in concert to create powerful synergy and optimal results.

Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
