Banner Public Affairs hires Ryan Losak as VP of government relations. Losak joins the firm after spending over a decade on Capitol Hill, where he most recently worked for Sen. John Boozman (R-AR), focusing on such issues as appropriations, health care, rural development, education and labor. In his new position, he is part of the firm’s bipartisan team of infrastructure experts, a division created in response to the federal government’s Infrastructure and Jobs Act. Losak supports clients from Banner’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. “The skills Ryan developed working on appropriations, especially for a skilled Senator like John Boozman, will help the Banner team to continue to achieve bipartisan wins in the new Congress,” said Banner partner and former senator Jim Talent.
