The space will serve as APA’s Pennsylvania headquarters, staffed with professionals experienced at all levels of government and in a wide range of industries.
“As our government affairs practice expands and the needs of our clients evolve, having an established presence in the Harrisburg community is key to our business development efforts,” said John Taylor, director of the Pennsylvania practice of Archer Public Affairs, in a statement. “The decision to open a new office allows us to magnify our presence in the region and be at the heart of government in Pennsylvania.”
Eric Bugaile joins APA as a government affairs specialist to lead business and policy objectives alongside Taylor. He formerly served as executive director of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Transportation Committee and continues to serve as chairman of the Capital Area Transit Authority.
Taylor served 17 consecutive terms in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and was appointed head of APA’s Pennsylvania practice in January. He is also of counsel at Archer & Greiner.
The Harrisburg office will be located at 1007 N. Front St., Suite 302A, Harrisburg, PA.
