Former Indianapolis Mayor Bill Hudnut has joined the Washington, D.C., office of Indianapolis-based lobbying firm Bose Public Affairs Group LLC.
Hudnut, 77, joined the firm Friday as a senior policy adviser, representing clients in federal government matters in the nation’s capital.
“Bill’s experience and achievement greatly enhances our portfolio of services and underscores our commitment to having a significant presence in the nation’s capital,” Craig Piercy, Bose’s senior vice president and director of federal relations, said in a prepared statement.
Hudnut, a Republican, served 16 years as mayor of Indianapolis, from 1976 to 1992. During his four terms, he was involved in the early development of the downtown Circle Centre mall, the negotiations to bring the Baltimore Colts to Indianapolis, the construction of the OneAmerica Tower, and the development of several sports venues.
After leaving the mayor’s office, Hudnut held posts at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, the Hudson Institute in Indianapolis and the Civic Federation in Chicago. He most recently served as vice-mayor of Chevy Chase, Md., and as a board member of the National League of Cities.
He also represented the Indianapolis area from 1973 to 1975 as a U.S. Representative.
Bose Public Affairs Group is an arm of the local Bose McKinney & Evans LLP law firm.
