If I need something done in Raleigh, the first people I’m calling are Tom Apodaca and Joey Nichols! The Vista team’s network and relationships reach across party lines and every sector and every corner of our great State. The superb team at Vista is not only incredibly effective, they never over promise. They get each job done, done right, and done on time. Plus, they’re a whole lot of fun too.

Our experience with Vista has been great! Their staff is professional, well-connected and informative. They keep us up to date and they go the extra mile to make sure our interests are met. They make our issues and pain points theirs and work to come up with solutions, even when they are challenging. I would recommend Vista for your lobbying and governmental affairs needs.

Former NC Secretary of Commerce
Dan has played a major role in North Carolina budget and economic development policy and execution over the past 20 years. I would go to him without hesitation for help navigating the players, the programs, and the rules of economic development. He’s a tireless worker, creative thinker, and successful problem solver. I’ve worked with Dan on economic development projects across the state and appreciate his innovative approach to bringing together stakeholders for successful projects.
