Julie Babbage returns to Kentucky to broaden Babbage Cofounder’s advocacy on behalf of clients and causes
LEXINGTON, Ky. – A new era of advocacy has begun in Kentucky as Julie Babbage, daughter of Bob and Laura Babbage, returns to the Commonwealth to join the Babbage Cofounder team.
“Laura and I could not be more excited to have Julie back in Kentucky,” said Bob Babbage, leading lobbyist and principal of Babbage Cofounder. “On a substantive level, Julie’s private sector and government experience in Washington D.C. will immediately help us better serve our clients. On a personal level, it’s great to have her home!”
Most recently, Julie worked as a Business Analyst for Deloitte, based in Washington D.C. Prior to joining Deloitte, Julie served in a number of internship capacities, ranging from the United States Senate to the U.S. Embassy in London, England. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with Honors studying International Business, Human Development, Philosophy and Spanish.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for me,” said Julie Babbage. “Kentucky has always been home and it has long been my goal to work for a leading public affairs firm. To have the chance to do both of those things, alongside my mom and dad no less, is a dream come true.”
Babbage Cofounder specializes in government relations and business strategies for public decisions, representing clients and causes on a broad range of public issues.
Cofounder’s lead lobbyist, Bob Babbage, has been recognized as one of Kentucky’s top lobbyists by various media sources including the Lexington Herald-Leader, Louisville’s Business First and the Huffington Post. In recent years, he was named one of the state’s 20 most influential non-elected leaders by the Courier-Journal and one of Kentucky’s top non-elected leaders by The Lane Report, a state-wide business magazine.
The company’s successes on the state level include landmark legislation in health care, especially diabetes and chronic health concerns, as well as issues relating to community colleges, manufacturing, energy, bourbon and distilled beverages, financial services, health insurance, technology and biotechnology, aviation, transportation and the Kentucky state budget.
Babbage Cofounder works with clients to develop effective lobbying strategies, management solutions and business development tools that lead to policy achievements, communications strategies and long-lasting positive relationships with government, corporate, higher education and civic leaders.
