WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Edward Russo, an environmental expert and consultant to Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization for the past 15 years, announced today the launch of ER Advisors, LLC, a privately held consulting firm that will advise environmental organizations, national corporate entities, and other clients on emerging environmental policies and regulations.
Russo will be joined by longstanding attorney and investment banker colleague Dean Porter as Chief Operating Officer, and other key positions in the firm will be announced subsequently. The firm, which includes environmentalists with extensive technical skills and regulatory experience, will have offices in Atlanta, Georgia, and Washington D.C.
Russo, a longtime environmental adviser to President Trump, was considered for senior positions in the administration, but chose to stay in the private sector. He is the author of Donald J. Trump, An Environmental Hero, A Chronicle of Environmental Excellence, which was published last year. "I've known Ed Russo a long time and he is the one guy that President Trump listens to regarding environmental issues," said Corey Lewandowski, a political strategist with close ties to the President through his service as the initial manager of the Trump presidential campaign.
A marketing description of the book cites Russo's relationship with the President. "Trump wasn't just interested in listening to Edward's opinion about the environmental impact of a proposed golf course, he was ready to offer Edward a job to ensure that his development wouldn't negatively impact habitats. As Edward chronicles his time as an environmental advisor for Trump and his many business interests, he reveals a much different portrait (of Trump) than what many see on television or the Internet. He details a man truly invested in environmental protection and ready to hire experts to carry out his vision."
Russo has spent his life advocating for environmental policies and education. His passion has been characterized as having a strong advocacy for practical environmentalism. His experience and knowledge of government regulatory systems is a product of his many years and positions on government boards and agencies. He formed ER Advisors, LLC. after collaborating with several of his colleagues who are environmentalists and also have technical skills in serving other entities with their knowledge. His unique talents have been in establishing an impressive compendium of environmentally sensitive public policies, and transforming and translating these important quality of life concepts to a practical application for the Trump Organization.
"We are looking forward to working with a variety of entities that want to understand what to expect and how to interpret policies regarding the environment. We will partner with clients to advance important private and public sector environmental projects, such an brownfield remediation, clean energy and green technology," said Porter. Due to ER Advisors' expertise in development-related projects in the U.S., Porter further noted that "we anticipate a significant number of clients will be companies seeking guidance on how to launch projects in the U. S. This is a new chapter for the nation to preserve and protect our environment through private investment opportunities. We can help people understand it."
Moreover, Porter made clear that ER Advisors will not engage in lobbying activities and will not be in competition with lobbying firms or strategy firms affiliated with law firms. Rather, it expects to refer business to law firms, lobbying firms and consulting firms to handle specific legislative, regulatory and policy needs of its clients.
Russo is available for media interviews about his book, his firm and the administration's environmental policies. To schedule, please contact: Deja Knight at 256-412-7585 or email@example.com
