ST. LOUIS — Travis Brown, the former top aide to libertarian political donor and philanthropist Rex Sinquefield, has been hired by prominent Jefferson City lobbyist Steven Tilley, days after breaking with Sinquefield. 

Brown and Tracy King, a partner of Brown’s consulting firm, Pelopidas, will begin working with Tilley’s firm, Strategic Capitol Consulting on Oct. 1, said communications director Brittany Robbins.

The hire brings together two high-profile lobbyists in Missouri and St. Louis politics who have played key roles in ventures from the push to privatize St. Louis Lambert International Airport to the shape of Missouri's fledgling medical marijuana industry.

Tilley, a former Missouri legislator, is a longtime friend of Gov. Mike Parson and has served as a political strategist for the Republican caucus. 

Brown and Brown’s Pelopidas consulting firm ended their partnership with Sinquefield on Sept. 1. 

For more than a decade, the firm used Sinquefield’s wealth to influence public policy with campaign contributions and political operatives. 

Shortly before the breakup, the partners abandoned an effort to privatize Lambert.
