Roach will assist with strategic advice and counsel; providing the firm with a presence in SW Louisiana

Baton Rouge, LA – Cornerstone Government Affairs announced Thursday the addition of Randy Roach as a Senior Advisor to the firm. The former Lake Charles Mayor and state representative will work part-time, assisting with strategy for existing clients as well as new client development.

“We could not be happier to have someone with the reputation, skill set and relationships that Randy has,” Cornerstone Managing Director Campbell Kaufman said. “He will provide clients with a unique perspective on Louisiana government, having served in senior positions at the state and local level. Cornerstone is very fortunate to be partnering with Randy.”

Roach served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1987-1995, representing Southwest Louisiana. His committee assignments included Natural Resources, Civil Law, and Ways and Means. He completed 17 years as mayor in July of last year. Former Governor Foster appointed him to the 1998 T.I.M.E.D. Review Task Force and he recently served on the Legislative Task Force on Structural Changes in Budget and Tax Policy.

“The Cornerstone team has earned a great reputation for finding bipartisan solutions to issues involving legislative and regulatory challenges,” Roach said. “I look forward to working with them to help their clients develop practical strategies that work. “

Cornerstone’s Baton Rouge office includes Gabrielle Kees, Nial Patel, Paul Rainwater and Campbell Kaufman. The firm was founded in 2002 in Washington, D.C. by Baton Rouge native Kaufman and other partners; the Baton Rouge office was opened in 2008.
