Brian Trascher

Modern politics is like professional wrestling: battles are scripted and outcomes are usually predetermined. The key is to be in the room when the script is written.

Do you like using Uber to get around town? You can thank Brian Trascher, since his lobbying firm recruited Uber to Louisiana and passed ride-sharing legislation. Aside from Fortune 100 companies, Brian advocates for non-profits who greatly impact the New Orleans community.

Brian also delivers keynote speeches about the lobbying business, entitled “Laws and Sausage,” to corporate executives. Despite his cynicism on politics, Brian still believes in community service. He is past president of 3rd District Kiwanis and a board member of the GNO Sports Foundation.

When he isn’t working, you can find Brian sailing in Lake Pontchartrain, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean…in that order.
