Biography

Edward T. Corrigan is group vice president for policy promotion at The Heritage Foundation. The leading think tank develops and promotes conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values and a strong national defense.

Corrigan, who joined Heritage in January 2013, functions as senior adviser on policy and strategy to Jim DeMint, the former Republican senator of South Carolina who assumed the presidency of Heritage in April 2013. Among his duties is overseeing the think tank’s Leadership for America program.

Corrigan previously served in senior roles in the U.S. Senate. From 2003 through 2012, he was executive director of the Senate Steering Committee, the caucus of conservative senators, under two chairmen -- DeMint and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).

He got his start on Capitol Hill as an intern on the staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee under Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.). From 1991 to 2003, he served in various capacities, including legislative director, in the office of Sen. Bob Smith (R-N.H.).

In 2009, GQ magazine named Corrigan to its list of “50 Most Powerful People in DC.” He also made Roll Call newspaper’s “Fabulous 50” list of top Hill staff and, in 2008, Politico’s list of “50 Politicos to Watch.”

In 2011, Corrigan received the Weyrich Award for Capitol Hill Staffer of the Year, an honor named after former Hill aide Paul M. Weyrich, who became the first president of The Heritage Foundation.

Corrigan was born in the town of Lakenheath in Suffolk, England, where his father was stationed while in the Army. He grew up in Longmeadow, Mass. He holds a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
