Chief Operating Officer, Client and Consultant Development

Phone: 703.820.0075

Amy Barden manages Lohfeld Consulting Group’s “bench” of capture and proposal consultants—developing client relationships, fielding requests for proposal assistance, and marketing and placing consultants. In her 20+ years’ in the proposal industry, she has served as Director of Communications and Proposals and as Director of Quality Assurance. Amy’s work has included designing and standing up a dedicated proposal center, directing proposal center operations, training, and—as an employee and as a consultant—serving as proposal manager, coordinator, writer, and editor. As a result, she has a deep understanding of the proposal process and the role of consultants in that process.

In addition to her work with proposals and government contractors, she has worked for the White House, Smithsonian Institution, and several associations and non-profits. Amy is a member of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP).
