Andrew O’Brien is the Special Representative for Global Partnerships in the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships (S/GP). Previously, Special Representative O’Brien had served as Secretary Kerry’s Massachusetts State Director in the Senate since 2007, reprising a role he had served in from 2003 to 2005. In this position, O’Brien played a lead role in all major policy and legislative deliberations affecting Massachusetts in the United States Congress, and is particularly proud of his work with small businesses, organized labor, the LGBT community, youth, veterans groups and new immigrants on behalf of then-Senator Kerry. In the past several years, he has lectured on politics and government at the city, state and national levels. In 2007, O’Brien was named one of the city’s Ten Outstanding Young Leaders by the Boston Jaycees and in 2009 he was named one of Massachusetts' "Top Ten Political Operatives" by Campaigns and Elections Magazine.
