Adam Falkoff, President, Capital Keys
In a tumultuous administration, Falkoff ’s access to President Trump has positioned his public policy firm well. Few are able to navigate matters with the skeletal staffs at agencies and the White House like Falkoff, who’s also helped advance appointees through Senate confirmations. He has known the Trump family for a decade, and helped raise $1.2 million in campaign funds and was one of his earliest outside strategic advisors. A filmmaker as well, Falkoff’s fifth production “The Brawler” hits theaters in June. This month, he is to be awarded the 2018 Ellis Island Medal of Honor.
