)-- Craig Casselberry, founder and CEO of Quorum Public Affairs of Austin, Texas, was recently named by the Austin Business Journal (ABJ) as one of ‘20 politically-minded Austinites to know’ for 2013. Casselberry was chosen along with 19 other who’s who of Texas politics for his expertise in legislative advocacy and for his strategic relationships with elected officials, economic developers, business leaders, and investors.
According to the ABJ, Mr. Casselberry ‘played a key role in the early development of the Texas Emerging Technology Fund’ and is considered a ‘go-to resource for many Texas businesses’. As a former aide to two Texas Governors, including current Governor Rick Perry, and as President of the Texas Coalition for Capital - a non-profit state-wide coalition of leaders supporting economic development - Mr. Casselberry has worked with stakeholders to enact legislation that has provided over 1 billion dollars in public-private capital investment programs for companies of all sizes.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by a leading business publication among a group of outstanding professionals,” stated Mr. Casselberry. “While I’d like to think we’ve become a trusted voice for business in Texas, I think this recognition is based largely on the collaborative work we’ve done with our clients and stakeholders to support a business-friendly economic environment and making sure Texas remains an attractive place for entrepreneurs and small businesses to operate and grow.”
