Kathleen Ferguson, who previously served as the Air Force’s top installations official, has joined the Washington, D.C.-based Roosevelt Group following a 34-year career with the service.
Ferguson stepped down in June from her post as principal deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy. From March 2013 to September 2014, she served as the acting assistant secretary for the installations office. Ferguson has worked in the installations office since 2007 when she first served as deputy assistant secretary for installations.
Ferguson began work Monday at the Roosevelt Group, a bipartisan government relations consulting firm, as a senior adviser.
“The addition of Kathy expands both our capacity and our expertise,” said John Simmons, the firm’s co-founder and managing partner.
Ferguson’s experience with the Air Force, where she developed the service’s strategic basing process, will be immensely valuable for the Roosevelt Group’s community clients striving to attract new missions to local installations, Simmons added. She also will advise communities interested in establishing partnerships with neighboring bases.
