Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Longtime Georgia lobbyist Bryan Tolar has opened a government affairs firm, Tolar Capitol Partners, Inc. Tolar, known and respected for his work supporting Georgia farmers and agribusiness, has been a constant presence at the Georgia Capitol, among state regulatory agencies and in Washington, D.C., for promoting agribusiness and the environment. Clients of Tolar Capitol Partners, Inc., will be well represented, given his many years of interaction with state policymakers and elected officials while in leadership at the Georgia Agribusiness Council.

Tolar spent 20 years championing Georgia’s agribusiness, rising to president of the Georgia Agribusiness Council before leaving the organization in September to establish his own firm.

He has demonstrated his value and expertise as a key voice on important policy issues, including water and irrigation rights, environmental stewardship, tax reductions, immigration reform, agricultural education, and rural initiatives.

“Bryan has been a valuable asset to me during my service in the General Assembly,” remarked Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman John Wilkinson. “He has great credibility and respect at the Capitol.”
Tolar is recognized for his contributions in the management of the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption (GATE) program and in the need for an agriculture workforce. Policymakers also acknowledge his key role in shaping drought policies and strengthening Georgia’s statewide water plan.

“The best predictor of future performance is to look at the past, and my record speaks for itself,” said Tolar.

“I’m proud of the many advancements made during my years of work with legislators and regulatory officials. By creating Tolar Capitol Partners, I am able to utilize my passion, tenacity and expertise to a select group of clients.”

“That’s what Georgia businesses expect and deserve, and it’s what I look forward to delivering.”
