Gov. Kim Reynolds announced today that Catherine Huggins, her chief advisor, will return to her previous role as executive vice president at Huggins Consulting Group on Aug. 1. Huggins will remain a close advisor to the governor and her staff, Reynolds said in a statement. “For many years, I’ve valued Catherine’s strategic thinking, expertise, and unique ability to forge diverse relationships,” Reynolds was quoted as saying in a news release. “She was my first chief advisor as lieutenant governor and I was proud to appoint her to the role again in 2017.” In her current role, Huggins leads the statewide Women in Leadership Initiative, supports entrepreneurs, start-ups and small business owners, and manages special projects such as the U.S. Census 2020 effort.
