Zach Johnson Joins McGuireWoods Consulting

ATLANTA – McGuireWoods Consulting announced that Zach Johnson has joined its Atlanta office as an assistant vice president. Johnson, who is a Georgia Certified Procurement Associate (GCPA), will assist clients with legislative, regulatory and procurement matters before the Georgia General Assembly.

Prior to joining McGuireWoods Consulting, he served as the lobbyist for the Georgia Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) with a primary focus on government procurement, state contracting and strategic sourcing. In that capacity, he was responsible for outreach to the Georgia General Assembly, enterprise agencies, local and county governments as well as the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia.

“He probably has one of the best procurement backgrounds of anyone in Georgia and will be a great addition to our team,” said Ashley Groome, McGuireWoods Consulting’s senior vice president and director for state government relations in Atlanta.

Johnson also served on the Georgia Technology Authority Technology Innovation Committee where he worked as a member of a cross-functional team looking at technology innovation across the entire enterprise of state government. He began his career working with former Georgia State Senate Majority Whip Cecil Staton and also worked as a lobbyist for the State Bar of Georgia.

Wholly owned by the McGuireWoods LLP law firm, McGuireWoods Consulting first opened its doors in Richmond on January 12, 1998, with a team of four full-time employees. Today, the group has 118 professionals, with offices in seven state capitals, Washington, D.C., and Europe. Over the two decades, the bipartisan firm has served more than 2,000 clients on matters ranging from federal and state government relations to grassroots advocacy and economic development. The National Law Journal’s most recent ranking of more than 1,500 federal government relations firms placed McGuireWoods Consulting in the top 20 for the fifth year in a row.
