Capital City Consulting announced the addition of Cory Dowd, a former member of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration and deputy chief of staff at the Florida Department of Education, as a partner to their firm.


Capital City Consulting (CCC) announced on Monday its addition of Cory Dowd, a former member of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration, as a partner.

Dowd’s most recent role was as deputy chief of staff at the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), where he contributed to policy development and implementation. His career also includes serving as deputy director of legislative affairs for DeSantis, where he helped advance the Governor’s legislative priorities.

Additionally, Dowd advised Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez on cybersecurity policy and aerospace economic development, and he previously specialized in legislative appropriations as a policy advisor to then-Speaker of the House Jose Oliva.

“Cory is another exciting hire for Capital City Consulting, as we continue to strategically grow the firm and add value for our clients,” said Nick Iarossi, co-founder of CCC. “His breadth of experience working in the Governor’s office, as well as in the legislature, will translate well to the work we do at Capital City Consulting.”

Ron LaFace, also a co-founder of CCC, expressed similar optimism. “We’re glad to see Cory become a part of our team of partners,” LaFace said. “Cory is no stranger to hard work and delivering results, and we’re excited to see what he achieves here at Capital City Consulting.”

Dowd, who holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Florida State University, began his career working in the Florida House of Representatives.

“I am honored to be joining the talented team at Capital City Consulting,” Dowd said. “Capital City Consulting boasts an impressive roster of partners who use their experience and connections to help clients achieve their goals. I look forward to leveraging my state government experience to contribute to the team’s efforts.”
