Trey Radel

No political consultant in the United States has anywhere near the diverse background or level of experience as former Congressman Trey Radel.

Radel has had success in every facet of media. He built and sold a newspaper, worked as a TV News Anchor & Reporter, and has hosted his own political talk radio show for years.  

In the political arena, Radel branded and built the Radel for Congress campaign from the ground up. The campaign won big in a brutal primary. Radel’s well-documented time in Congress, with ups and downs, once again illustrates why he is perfectly suited to handle and advise in nearly any situation. Since his time in Congress, Radel has advised consultants and campaigns. 

Radel’s resume on the creative side is just as diverse. Radel is an author, actor, and musician. He produces music, scoring his own TV and radio spots. Radel studied improv comedy at Chicago’s famed Second City, and the actor currently has a recurring role on Sony’s Crackle app in a show called StartUp. Radel has also played dramatic parts on the Investigation Discovery network. In 2017, Radel's book, DEMOCRAZY, was published by Blue Rider Press, a division of Random House. 

Fluent in English, Spanish and Italian, Radel has lived in, worked in, or backpacked through nearly fifty countries around the world. His love for people, places, and especially foreign cultures has taken him from South America to Southeast Asia and about everywhere in between.
