Congresswoman Granger Promotes Robert Head to Chief of Staff


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) has promoted Deputy Chief of Staff and Fort Worth native, Robert Head, to be her new chief of staff.

“Robert has been a dependable and trusted member of my staff for a long time. He possesses an expertise on legislative issues, especially on defense, that makes him a valuable asset to me and to the 12th District,” said Granger. “He also has a wonderful, even-keeled temperament that makes him terrific to work with. I am thrilled he has accepted the position and know he will make an excellent Chief of Staff.”

Head grew up in Fort Worth and went to high school at Fort Worth Country Day. After graduating in 1996, he attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas. During the summer of 1999, Head interned for Ms. Granger in Washington, D.C. By the end of the summer, Head decided he wanted to work in Washington after graduating. Head received his bachelor’s in History and in Political Science from SMU in May 2000, and shortly thereafter was hired by Ms. Granger as a Legislative Correspondent.

Since 2000, Head has held almost every position on Ms. Granger’s staff. He was promoted to Legislative Assistant in late 2000, moving up several years later to handle defense and military issues. In June 2004, he was promoted to Legislative Director and served in this role until December 2004 when he was again promoted to Deputy Chief of Staff. Head’s primary legislative responsibilities include defense, homeland security, and energy and water issues.

“I am honored that Congresswoman Granger has asked me to serve as her Chief of Staff, especially as a native of the12th District of Texas. After working in this office for almost six years, I am excited about the opportunity to serve the District in my new capacity,” said Head.

He and his wife, Brenna, are expecting their first child in August.
