Ron Hamm and Leslie Mozingo have worked together for more than 15 years. One of their biggest successes included over $88 million in downtown riverfront redevelopment and other projects in appropriations and authorizations; nearly $47 million in federal competitive grants; and several legislative, regulatory and Administrative accomplishments for the City of Memphis, TN when they were the City’s Washington lobbyists for more than a decade.
Currently, they work together on behalf of the City of Winston-Salem, NC, and have also previously worked together for, among others, King County, WA; Broward County, FL; and Mecklenburg County, NC.
After graduating from the University of Alabama in 1988, Leslie immediately moved to Washington, DC to start working for a Congressman. Simultaneously, she put herself through night school to earn an M.B.A. in marketing, summa cum laude, from The American University, where she was also a Bryce Harlow Scholar.
She left Capitol Hill to become a federal lobbyist in a firm where she was promoted through the ranks from associate to partner in just six short years, and remained there for nearly 23 years until she launched Strategics Consulting in 2013.
Known for her ability to devise and implement innovative federal strategies, Leslie is a frequent speaker on federal issues and effective lobbying best practices. Additionally, she writes a quarterly advocacy column for a local government magazine, has been published in a national magazine, and has been interviewed several times by both print and broadcast media.
Leslie provides federal government relations and consulting services to local governments, regional Councils of Governments, and statewide associations, as well as private entities needing to learn more about navigating Washington.
