"The cities and counties we represent are doing some truly amazing things for their constituents, and I am really proud to be a part of it."

Roger Gwinn, CEO of The Ferguson Group, oversees the management of the firm, the delivery of client services and the development of new offerings to address the evolving needs of clients. Roger represents public agency and private interests specializing in water resources, community development and technology. A nationally recognized water infrastructure expert, Roger is known for creating and executing innovative and successful strategies to meet the challenging and complex needs of clients.

Recognized by Influence Magazine as one of Washington’s six “Top Gun” appropriations lobbyists, Roger joined The Ferguson Group in 1993. Roger spent 15 years on Capitol Hill, serving two members of Congress and as an associate staff member on the House Committee on Appropriations.

Roger leads the firm’s representation of large-scale, regional water resources, environmental protection and economic development initiatives. Roger has worked with dozens of communities nationwide to help them secure hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funds for storm water, wastewater and drinking water system improvements. For example, Roger helped launch federal efforts that have steered more than $1 billion into the multi-state Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund.  He helped one rural community secure more than $80 million in federal assistance to help defray the local construction costs of a new regional drinking water facility. In addition, Roger has led the firm’s representation of regional scale water reuse projects, including one where 10 public agencies in three counties are collaborating on a comprehensive regional water reuse program to help meet the water supply needs of agriculture, urban areas and the environment.

A long-time advocate of enactment of a Water Infrastructure Finance Innovation Act (WIFIA) which would provide a source of low-cost, long-term financing for water, wastewater and storm water infrastructure projects, Roger leads TFG’s efforts to improve existing policies and enact new legislation to broaden access to federal grants and create new financing options to help deal with the complex water challenges of today and tomorrow.

Roger was a member of the inaugural class of the Stennis Congressional Staff Fellows Program. He is among the founders of eCivis, the nation's leader in online grants information and grants management for local governments. Roger has his B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina State University.
