"No one cares more about their clients and is more passionate about their work than the team at TFG."
Aindriu Colgan joined the Ferguson Group in July of 2016. Prior to joining TFG, Aindriu worked as Legislative Director for Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, where he developed expertise in tax, energy, and fiscal policy.
Aindriu was integral in passing 2015’s permanent tax extenders package (the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act), which included the permanent State and Local Sales Tax Deduction, the permanent Research and Development Tax Credit, and reforms to the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) to encourage more foreign investment in US commercial real estate. He also helped Chairman Brady build and lead the successful effort to repeal the ban on crude oil exports.
Additionally, he worked with state and local public servants and retirement systems to develop a bipartisan, cost-neutral solution to the disastrous Windfall Elimination Provision. This 30-year-old formula punished public servants in states like Texas, California, Massachusetts, and Ohio for having two careers—one in the public sector and another in the private sector. The solution Aindriu helped develop, the Equal Treatment of Public Servants Act, will finally award public servants with the full retirement benefits they earned.
Aindriu completed his Masters with Distinction in international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He completed his Bachelor’s degree cum laude at Dartmouth College in Economics and Classical Languages and Literature (Honors). He also competed for four years as a member of Dartmouth’s Varsity Heavyweight Rowing team.
He lives with his wife, Jennifer, in Washington DC.
