We are a Group with a national presence.

Our presence is built on strategic practice areas in corporate strategy, government relations, communications strategy, crisis management and political consulting.


The Group

The Ingram Group was founded by Tom Ingram after leaving his post as Deputy to the Governor and Chief of Staff to then-Governor Lamar Alexander. Thanks to some good friends and good advice, Tom realized that if he could do anything, he’d hang a shingle and put up a sign that said: “Crisis manager, problem solver". He did just that in Nashville in 1983.

Since that time, the Group has enjoyed success as the go-to strategic consulting and lobbying firm, focused on two core objectives—solving problems and maximizing opportunities. Our Washington, D.C. office, previously The FIRST Group, was launched in early 2010 with the same strategic goals in mind.
