Robert Culley

Robert Culley’s legislative experience began over thirty years ago, when he served as Chief of Staff for a State Representative who was later elected State Senator.  His long-time service at the Capitol has left him with strong relationships among both members and staff.  During his time working for the legislature, Robert oversaw the House Public Education Committee and the Senate Administration Committee.


Robert worked at the Texas Capitol for several years before becoming the Director of Governmental Affairs for the Texas Motor Transportation Association in the early 1990’s.  There, he oversaw public relations, grassroots and lobbying efforts for the association’s 1200 members.


In 1993, Robert joined Polan Culley (then Polan Ingram Advocacy Group), bringing his extensive Capitol and trade association experience to the firm.  He brings his clients a wealth of knowledge in strategy and project management, bill drafting, comprehensive communications programs, and media relations.


Robert attended the University of Texas on a baseball scholarship and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history with a minor in political science.  Robert is married with two daughters.  He and his family live in North Austin.
