Brock Clay Joins The RAP Index Team

Government and Public Affairs Firm to Serve As RAP Advisor

Brock Clay Government and Public Affairs, led by Charles Clay, Brian Noyes, Seth Millican and Joshua Mackey, has teamed with The RAP Index®, the proprietary public affairs software solution created by The Felkel Group, Inc. Collectively, Brock Clay’s leadership team will serve in a business development role as part of the group’s RAP Advisors team and will assist the firm in marketing The RAP Index®, which identifies stakeholders’ relationships with over 28,000 policy makers at the local, state and federal level.

“Brock Clay is thrilled to join the RAP Advisors team,” said Brian Noyes, CEO. “The RAP Index® is absolutely unique. Nothing else supports personal advocacy like this. Nothing even comes close."

Brock Clay, located in Marietta, Georgia, provides comprehensive solutions to public policy challenges. Their approach integrates lobbying, grassroots and community affairs and is tailored to meet the specific needs of each client. Their professionals have a proven record of success dealing with the challenges and opportunities that arise at the intersection of business and government.

Brock Clay's professionals have the personal knowledge of legislative and government processes that can only be gained from public service. Their team has been involved in elected and appointed positions at the county, state and federal levels. Through their experiences in these positions, they have not only developed an expert knowledge of government, but also personal relationships, and trust, with leaders throughout the state. They have the strategic capabilities and relationships that can help steer clients through the complicated processes of the General Assembly and state agencies; or work with them to initiate changes in the cities or counties across Georgia.

“We are very eager to work with the Brock Clay team,” said Hollis “Chip” Felkel, CEO. “With their personal knowledge and expertise, we hope to bring more awareness to this dynamic tool.” Earlier this year, TFG released The RAP Index® 2.0, a unique approach that mines and identifies key stakeholder relationships in the public policy arena, while also objectively assessing the stakeholder’s willingness, ability, interest and aptitude for leveraging their relationships or engaging on issues. “The RAP Index® makes it possible for an organization to use its best possible assets, its own people, as it deals with public policy,” says Felkel. “It’s about finding the right messengers, and those are the people who have the relationships to begin with.” To learn more, visit or
