Ms. Baucus, a former Associate Director at the U.S. Department of Justice, brings to Perennial a decade of experience in government affairs, legal advocacy, bipartisan policymaking, political campaigns, and nonprofit service. In this position, she will provide strategic counsel to and lead advocacy efforts for non-profit organizations and Fortune 500 companies on the most critical governmental issues in today's business environment.
