HBAGNO Government Relations Representative, Evan Loukadakis
Hello everyone! My name is Evan Loukadakis (I couldn’t spell that until second grade), and I am your new government relations representative! I was raised in Marksville, Louisiana by a Cajun mother and a Greek father. In May 2016, I graduated from the greatest university in America (LSU!) with degrees in Mass Communication and Business Administration. In college, I worked in Governor Jindal’s Administration, the House of Representatives and for Senator Eric LaFleur. Since graduation, I’ve worked on a few political campaigns—Supreme Court Justice Jimmy Genovese, Judge Candyce Perret and Commissioner Damon Baldone. I’m thrilled to begin this journey with HBAGNO, and look forward to utilizing my skills in this organization. I hope to see you in person soon, thank you!
