Scott Ross has been named managing partner of Capital City Consulting, the company announced this week.
“I am honored to have been chosen to help lead such an exceptional group of professionals. We are privileged to work with amazing clients and I look forward to continuing to help grow the best business in Florida,” said Ross.
Ross joined CCC in 2015 and has over a decade of lobbying experience. Prior to entering the Florida lobbying corps, Ross served as an assistant secretary at the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which enhanced her lobbying expertise in gambling-related policies and other regulated industries.
In addition to this expertise, Ross’ resume also includes serving as Director of Government Relations for one of the world’s largest gaming and entertainment companies, Las Vegas Sands.
“Scott is smart, strategic and trusts everyone in the firm. He is an obvious choice for the Managing Partner and we are excited to see how his leadership will shape our continued growth,” said CCC’s co-founder. Nick Iarossi said.
Co-founder Ron Laface added: “Scott has always been one of the go-to people for members of the firm needing help with an issue or developing a client strategy and we are delighted that he has agreed to formally take on the role of managing partner.”
Ross rises within the company as Capital City Consulting itself continues to grow – the company consistently places among the top 5 companies in terms of lobbying revenue and he recently announced that South Florida-based Prodigy Public Affairs would merge with the company, becoming Capital City Consulting Miami.
“It’s no surprise that Scott has been named Managing Partner of Capital City Consulting. His attention to detail, his relationships and his dogged advocacy for his clients really stand out,” said Rep. Blaise Ingogliaa Spring Hill Republican heading for the state Senate after the November election.
Ross is a graduate of Florida State University and Nova Southeastern University School of Law. He also worked as a lobbyist for the Florida Student Association, representing the interests of more than 300,000 students attending state universities at the state and federal levels.
