Renne Public Policy Group (RPPG), a division of Renne Public Law Group (RPLG), has announced that Dane Hutchings will lead the practice from a Sacramento office as Director, Government Affairs. The newly launched lobbying firm is bringing together the local government legal expertise and wisdom of the attorneys at RPLG with the political acumen and experience of one of local government’s strongest advocates.
RPPG is a full-service lobbying and consulting firm that provides support to public agencies and the companies who align with the interest of public agencies. As Director of Governmental Affairs, Mr. Hutchings will advocate for clients in Sacramento and provide full wraparound services with RPLG attorneys and consultants from RPLG.Solutions serving as strategic advisors for the division.
“Over the past 10 years, I’ve built my reputation on hard work, honesty and integrity,” said Mr. Hutchings. “Culture matters to me. So having an opportunity to build off of the success of the RPLG brand and culture is incredibly exciting. I can’t wait to develop the business, grow our government affairs team and create an environment where the team loves to come to work and fights with passion and courage for our clients.”
For over a decade, Mr. Hutchings has been advocating for the best interests of both public and private entities. Regarded as a statewide thought leader in California public pension policy, he offers a unique understanding of California local government operations, service delivery methods and revenue sources.
Mr. Hutchings will work to perfect public policy in California with a focus on local government agencies and the businesses that partners with local government. With RPLG’s seasoned legal expertise and Mr. Hutchings’ deep policy experience, RPPG is poised to deliver in a critical area of policy: the balance between state authority and local government autonomy.
“We are thrilled to bring Dane aboard to head Renne Public Policy Group,” said Jon Holtzman, RPLG Founding Partner. “After working directly with him for the past three years, I have connected with his fast-paced, nuanced and inclusive advocacy style. He is the perfect fit for this position and this firm.”
