Former Congressman Luke Messer has found a new role with Washington D.C.  firm, Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting.

The firm announced this morning that Messer, a Republican, will co-lead the firm’s bipartisan federal advocacy team. As part of his new role, Messer will advise clients on federal regulatory and policy developments.

“I am excited to join a major firm with a strong presence in Washington, D.C. and nationwide,” said Messer. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues to help clients navigate the complex maze of federal policy decisions in Washington.”

Messer, originally from Greensburg, served three terms in Congress representing the Sixth District.  During his time there, he served as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee and served on the House committees on Financial Services; Education and the Workforce; Budget; and Foreign Affairs.

He left Congress this month, replaced by Rep. Greg Pence.  Messer chose not to see re-election, instead running for the U.S. Senate and losing in last year’s primary to new Sen. Mike Braun.

Messer holds a law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School and a bachelor’s degree in speech from Wabash College where he graduated summa cum laude.
