John Kaul knows government better than most. Cited by Minnesota Law & Politics as one of the state's top lobbyists, he has represented scores of diverse clients, from Saturn Corporation and the Minnesota Twins to the Rochester Public School System and the State University System of Maine. An active participant in Minnesota government for three decades, John once served as the top aide to Senate Majority Leader Nicholas Coleman, and as a lead lobbyist for ITT covering finance, insurance and related issues in 25 states. He's also served as president of the Colorado and Wisconsin consumer finance trade associations. A visible player in Minnesota state government circles, he has forged strong relationships with key legislators, staff, agency heads, business leaders and members of the press corps. And his expertise reaches well beyond Minnesota, as John has lobbied telecommunications and higher education issues in Washington D.C., where Minnesota's Congressional delegation know him well.
