WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowans for Tax Relief (ITR) on Tuesday announced the addition of former Iowa House Majority Leader Chris Hagenow to their staff.

Hagenow will serve as ITR’s Vice President, where he will develop public policy solutions and strengthen relationships across the state to advance ITR’s goals of lower taxes, less government spending, and fewer onerous regulations.

“We’re thrilled to have Chris join our team at ITR. He is a proven leader with a record of working to limit government’s impact on the daily lives of Iowans,” said Chris Ingstad, president of ITR. “Chris will be a tremendous asset for us as he expands our network across the state.” 

Hagenow is a sixth-generation Iowan. He grew up in Cedar Falls, graduated from Northern University High School, and the University of Northern Iowa Magna Cum Laude. Chris earned his JD from the University of Iowa College of Law.

Hagenow served 12 years in the Statehouse representing parts of Dallas and Polk Counties. During his time at the Capitol, he served as Chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee, House Majority Whip, and House Majority Leader.

“I look forward to engaging with Iowa’s business leaders, entrepreneurs, and civic organizations to build new coalitions with the taxpayer in mind,” said Hagenow. “Iowans need a limited government and more economic freedom. It starts with people taking action. The answers come from Main Street, not the state Capitol.”

His new role will be an advisory one and he will not be participating in the organization’s lobbying efforts.
