HORNE Construction Forum 2022

The road ahead is unpredictable, and preparing for potential change is critical. With the results of the November 8th mid-term elections, businesses will need to look ahead and assess how key processes and operations will be impacted. Navigating through change is expected, and developing practical strategies helps maintain effectiveness.

Join us at HORNE Construction Forum 2022, on November 16th, beginning with breakfast at 8:30 a.m. This forum will offer networking opportunities, educational insights, post-election discussions and tips to help you embrace change and think differently about the future of business.

Scott Keller

Scott Keller is a partner in HORNE’s government services practice and leads the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. A senior policy advisor with more than 25 years of experience at all levels of government, Scott maintains a strong focus in the federal appropriations process, the programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the financial services sector, health care and public/private housing initiatives.

Following the 2016 election, Scott was designated by the Presidential Transition Team as the official representative in charge of the nomination and confirmation of Dr. Ben Carson as the Secretary of HUD. In this capacity Scott led the effort to both prepare Dr. Carson for his Senate hearing and to lead the agency upon his confirmation.

Prior to joining HORNE, Scott served as a Chief of Staff at HUD where he directed personnel, political, and policy matters for over 9,000 employees in Washington, D.C. and across the country. He served as the senior political and policy advisor to the Secretary on all Departmental, Congressional, Cabinet and executive agency issues. Scott was instrumental in managing the Department’s response during and after the 2004 Gulf Coast hurricanes as well as Gulf Coast recovery following Hurricane Katrina. Those efforts included the development of an allocation process to distribute almost $18 Billion in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
