Stephanie Swanson

Senior Vice President of Government Affairs

Stephanie Swanson serves as Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, where she works on AIM’s policy and regulatory priorities.

Prior to joining AIM, Swanson spent more than a decade working on Beacon Hill in the Massachusetts Senate. She served as Chief of Staff and General Counsel to former Senator Eric Lesser, managing a robust legislative and policy portfolio and overseeing both strategic planning and day-to-day operations for the office. During her eight years with Senator Lesser, she worked on major 2018, 2020, and 2022 economic development packages which provided billions of dollars to businesses, communities, and families across the Commonwealth.

Swanson began her Senate career as Legislative Director and Legal Counsel to Senator Barry Finegold, where she assisted Senator Finegold in passing both the 2014 election reform and campaign finance reform bills into law. She also worked on Senator Finegold’s successful 2012 state senate campaign.

A political science and economics graduate of Tufts University, Swanson studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science before earning her law degree in 2012 from Northeastern University School of Law. She has been a member of the Massachusetts bar since 2012.

If not working at AIM – or anywhere else – Swanson would likely be traveling through Italy with her husband, Dave, and two kids, Olivia and Charlie.
