Director of State and Federal Governmental Affairs
Andrew Holleman serves as Director of State and Federal Governmental Affairs at The Picard Group. Prior to The Picard Group, Holleman worked in Washington, D.C. as a federal lobbyist for Cheniere Energy, Inc., advising management on engagement strategies with Congress, government agencies, and trade associations. During his tenure at Cheniere, he established strong relationships with Members and staff in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate and several regulatory agencies, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Holleman’s advocacy on Cheniere’s behalf helped to secure key regulatory approvals from FERC, leading to an increase in production, jobs, and investment for Southwest Louisiana.
Prior to working with Cheniere, Holleman worked for FERC, which regulates interstate natural gas pipelines and LNG facilities. Holleman began his career in Washington, D.C. in 2012 working for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu where he advocated on behalf of multiple industries across Louisiana, including the ports and waterways and agriculture industries.
A New Iberia native and graduate of University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Holleman recently returned to Louisiana after living in Washington, D.C. for the last ten years and now resides in Youngsville, LA.
