WASHINGTON—Anthony P. Campau, former Chief of Staff and Counselor of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) within the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), has returned to The Heritage Foundation as a Visiting Fellow in Regulatory Policy. As a fellow in the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, he will work to develop and advance substantive and structural regulatory reform proposals.
Prior to his return to Heritage, Campau helped to lead the Trump Administration’s regulatory reform initiatives at OIRA—long regarded as “the most powerful office you’ve never heard of.” Also serving on the Beachhead Team at OMB and OIRA and as a core member of the Regulatory Reform Team on the Presidential Transition Team, Campau helped to develop executive orders, policy memoranda, and guidance used to implement President Trump’s bold regulatory reform agenda.
Paul Winfree, Heritage’s Director of the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies said, “Anthony oversaw the execution of many critical regulatory reforms during his time with OIRA. We are excited to have him joining Roe where he’ll be using his expertise as part of our already strong team to think through new ways to reform the regulatory process.”
In addition to his previous service at The Heritage Foundation, Campau has a J.D. and an LL.M in Securities and Financial Regulation from the Georgetown University Law Center. He also served as served as a law clerk to the Honorable Neomi J. Rao in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
