Greg Rudd, banned from lobbying any federal government headed by brother Kevin, gets onto WA government’s register Greg

Posted by gasweek on 26 September, 2007

Rudd, an elder brother of federal Labor leader Kevin Rudd, had just successfully applied, via his lobbying business, Open Door Consulting, to be added to the Western Australian government’s register of lobbyists, reported The Australian Financial Review (25/9/2007, p. 50). What to do when one door closes: The register was introduced after it emerged that Grill and his mate Brian Burke had cabinet ministers and senior bureaucrats wrapped around their little fingers. The list of Open Door’s clients published on the register just last week was hardly blue chip, the AFR wrote, but it did show that Rudd was intent on picking up new business in booming WA — especially after Kevin announced that Greg would be banned from lobbying a future Rudd Labor government so as to avoid claims of a conflict of interest. For the record, Open Door’s clients include Ernst & Young, Phoenix Eagle Alcan South Pacific, BlueScope Water, Karcher, Workpac International, Diversified Construction Corporation, Heritage Properties and Hear & Say Centre.
