Robinson Bradshaw Launches Government Relations Practice Led by Former Chamber CEO Bob MorganPDF
Robinson Bradshaw is establishing a Government Relations Practice led by Bob Morgan, the firm's first director of public affairs. Morgan previously served as president and CEO of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. He joins Robinson Bradshaw on May 1.
"Bob Morgan did an outstanding job leading the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce for 13 years, and was on the forefront of representing the Charlotte business community in his extensive work with state and local government officials on both sides of the aisle," said Managing Partner Allen Robertson. "He also was deeply involved in our region's economic development successes over these years. Our clients will benefit from Bob's experience and expertise in government relations and economic development matters."
Robinson Bradshaw's new Government Relations Practice will be a constituent service offered to clients encountering statutory or regulatory issues with city, county, regional and state governments in the Carolinas.
Morgan will also help lead the firm's Economic Development Practice, serving clients who are relocating or growing and who are eligible for local and state incentives.
As president and CEO of the Charlotte Chamber, Morgan oversaw all aspects of the nonprofit's operations, including its finances, economic development and pro-business public policy efforts, member engagement programs, and sales and communications. He led the Chamber, an organization with more than 2,700 members, since 2005. Morgan previously served as president and CEO of the Gaston Chamber from 2002-05 and began his chamber career in 1991 as a Charlotte Chamber staff member. Morgan received a bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
