He uses his campaign and knowledge of public sector practices to compliment his clients’ business development goals.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution drew distinction with his colleagues by saying, he is “uber connected” and years ago remarked that “lobbying when Democrats were in charge, he has continued to have success now that the Republicans run things.”  Morgan was heavily involved in video services legislation, which passed both houses overwhelmingly, as well as telecommunications deregulation legislation at both the federal and state level.  He successfully  “quarterbacked” tort reform legislation (successor liability relief) in Georgia.  He provided strategic and tactical leadership in passing legislation that began the process known as public private partnerships (P3) to address pressing infrastructure needs. He was the lead strategist in passing tax legislation that resulted in securing what is now State Farm Arena, a top-rated concert and professional sports facility, for the city of Atlanta at no cost to the taxpayers.   He has twice led efforts to pass legislation that improved access to “Epi-pens” for schools and organizations such as 4H camp. has named him as a “Top 10 Georgia Influencer” and commented, “He is at the top of his game”.

Embracing the entrepreneurial spirit instilled in him by his father and grandfather, he established his own firm in 1997 after serving as Senior Vice President of the former firm of Edington, Wade, and Sanders. He is the former chairman of the Federal Affairs Committee as well as the Economic Development Committee for the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs Council and currently serves on its executive committee.  He is a member of the Board of Governors of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, a premier state-based “think tank”.  As a college student, he worked as a counselor at Rock Eagle 4H Center and currently chairs the board of trustees of the Georgia 4H Foundation. 

As a consultant to over twenty-five state, federal, and local campaigns and as a regional director for the 1988 George H. W. Bush for President campaign, he has experience in directing strategic campaigns that is unparalleled for its longevity among Georgia-based public affairs consultants.  He was a senior strategist in each of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson’s statewide campaigns and has performed key roles with Governor Nathan Deal (R-GA), Speaker Newt Gingrich, Governor Pete Wilson (CA), the late Congresswoman Tillie Fowler (R-FL), the late Congressman Mac Collins (R-GA), and numerous state legislative leaders.  In his first announcement as Governor-elect, Nathan Deal appointed him as the co-chairman of the 2011 Inaugural Committee and a senior advisor to his transition team.

For over thirty years, Jay Morgan has provided corporations, coalitions, candidates, and business associations with solid strategic plans for execution of public affairs tactics. He has been recruited to work on lobbying teams for his experience in forming coalitions on controversial issues such as healthcare cost containment, litigation reform, criminal justice reform, state tax credits, and financial transactions.
