Katherine Flocken Joins Allon Advocacy

Monday, Aug. 26, Washington, DC – Allon Advocacy, a global government affairs and consulting firm founded by Steve Boms, announced today the addition of Katherine Flocken as senior policy advisor. Flocken previously served as senior government relations specialist at Arent Fox, LLP where she launched the firm’s financial technology practice group.

“Allon is a growing firm working with innovative new companies and advocacy organizations in the financial technology and financial services sectors,” explained Flocken. “Together they are addressing some of the most complex policy issues elected representatives and regulators will have to tackle over the next several years, including financial data sharing, data ownership and consumer financial empowerment. I’m excited to join Steve and his team as they help policymakers address these critical issues.”

Flocken was head of policy at the Financial Health Network, formerly the Center for Financial Services Innovation, before joining Arent Fox. At the Financial Health Network, Flocken created and implemented a government relations strategy for the Financial Solutions Lab, a $30 million, five-year challenge aimed at finding and developing high-tech solutions to improve consumer financial health. She also worked closely with U.S. lawmakers to draft legislation on data sharing and consumer protection.

“We are excited and fortunate to welcome Kate to our firm,” said Boms. “She is a recognized thought leader who understands what new innovation in the financial and technology sectors will mean for consumers and small businesses. Her experience and communications acumen will be extremely valuable as we work to articulate the value our clients bring to the global economy and consumers.”

Flocken’s work has been published in the Intellectual Property & Technology Journal and Law 360. After receiving her undergraduate degree from the London School of Economics (LSE), she began her career in Washington as a legislative aide in the office of U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) where she primarily handled issues on the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee before returning to London to earn a master’s degree at LSE.
