Herrgott is originally from Phoenix and received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from George Washington University. His studies include a graduate program at the London School of Economics
On returning to Inhofe’s staff, Herrgott said, “It was a difficult decision to leave the Chamber and all the individuals there I worked with because they are a talented group of people and an exceptional voice for the private sector, the spirit of entrepreneurship, and the concerns of businesses large and small. The experience I gained there will be beneficial as I return to legislative making process. The Chamber is a highly effective advocate for local chambers of commerce. Since many of those are located in Oklahoma, I look forward to continuing to work with them in my new capacity.
“Even though Senator Inhofe is transitioning away from the Ranking Member role on the EPW Committee, he plans to continue fighting the same issues from environmental laws to providing for the nation’s infrastructure needs. As his Legislative Director, I will rely on my eight years of experience at the Environment and Public Works Committee to help him continue his record of success in those battles as he works with the new Ranking Member, Senator David Vitter.”
