MIAMI, FLORIDA — Today, lobbying firm Capital City Consulting (CCC) announced Miguel Abad as the firm’s local and state government affairs director. Prior to joining CCC, Miguel was a managing partner at Abad & Associates. Miguel assisted clients with shaping policy, securing appropriations, and government procurement.
“Miguel is a seasoned public affairs operative,” said Brian May, managing partner of CCC Miami. “He learned the government affairs game from the inside and understands the public-facing dynamics of our business very well. Miguel is able to build relationships and absorb complex subject matter quickly. Both of those qualities make him very effective at navigating the government affairs process, whether it be local or at the state level. He is going to serve our clients well and be an excellent addition to our team.”
Headed by Rodney Barreto and Brian May, CCC Miami is the premier public affairs practice in Miami, providing local government and business-to-business consulting services to clients in South Florida for the past 25 years. Miguel’s expertise will enhance the South Florida service offering and provide state lobbying services before Florida’s executive and legislative branches.
“I have always been impressed with Miguel’s attention to detail and ability to find ways to assist with the priorities he worked on for Chairman Rene Garcia (R-Miami),” said Ron LaFace, co-founder of CCC. “Miguel learned the nuance of government affairs policy in Tallahassee. He then successfully took those skills to Miami-Dade, and I am thrilled he is joining CCC to serve firm clients in South Florida and at the state level.”
In addition to his experience in the state legislature and in Miami, Miguel also gained knowledge within the Medicaid and Medicare managed care industry, completing his practicum with the Florida Association of Health Plans, Inc. His role focused on advocating for issues that enhance access to high-quality, affordable health care. Miguel will also work alongside Tim Gomez and Felipe Angulo at CCC Miami. Gomez and Angulo previously served roles with Miami-Dade County, both for the County Commission and the Mayor’s office.
