A staffer for Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Thursday (Nov. 8) a new business venture.

Robert Moery has launched a lobbying practice called Broadview Strategies. The full-service government relations and consulting practice will be based in Little Rock.

Moery was campaign manager for Hutchinson’s successful re-election campaign. He previously served as the governor’s legislative director, and as a point-person for agriculture, transportation, natural resource, game and fish, insurance and racing and gaming issues.

“I will always appreciate the opportunity Governor Hutchinson gave me to serve the people of Arkansas,” Moery said in a statement. “I could not have asked for a better last five years working with the governor and his team.”

Moery said his company will also partner with Shiloh Strategic Advisors, a public relations/public affairs firm in Little Rock founded by Bill Vickery, Mitchell Lowe and former state Rep. John Burris. The three partners (Vickery, Lowe and Burris) also manage Capitol Advisors Group, a Little Rock-based lobbying firm.

“I’m very excited for the future relationship between Broadview Strategies and Shiloh Strategic Advisors,” Moery said. “Being able to stay in the government arena and help clients solve their issues, implement effective policy and grow their brand will be my focus Bill, Mitchell and John have a wealth of experience in public and government affairs and I’m thrilled to be a part of their established team.”

Vickery, the managing partner of Capitol Advisors Group, said his company is excited to be in business with Moery.

“He is bright, very well-respected and already accomplished at a very young age,” Vickery said. “Robert represents both the present and future for the business of politics in Arkansas.”

Gov. Hutchinson also released the following statement:

“Robert has been a key asset to me from my gubernatorial race in 2014, through the last four years of my administration, and as the campaign manager for my re-election team this past year,” he said. “He brings together a great blend of knowledge and experience that I know will be valuable to Broadview Strategies’ and Shiloh’s success.  I wish him all the best.”
