• DEFENSE. Canon is known for its cameras, but the company also sees business at the Pentagon. American Defense International has been hired by the company to help set up meetings with officials to talk about “sensor and imaging technologies for defense and homeland security applications.” Van Hipp, former deputy assistant secretary of the Army, and Michael Herson, once a senior Pentagon aide, are some of the lobbyists on the account.
• TELECOMMUNICATIONS. A former senior aide to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) is helping out Time Warner Cable. Valerie Nelson, who had directed member services for Cantor, is lobbying at Dentons on “retransmission consent, privacy and broadband deployment” for the cable company. Todd Bertoson, once the Senate Commerce Committee’s staff director, and Megan Delany, a former House Energy and Commerce Committee aide, are also lobbying for Time Warner.
