Vice president of the Alabama Policy Institute (API), Katherine G. Robertson, will be leaving API after four years to take a position with the Alabama Attorney General’s Office.
As of Dec. 1, Robertson will serve as senior advisor to Attorney General Luther Strange.
“I believe that I speak for the entire API team when I say that we are thankful to have had the opportunity to work alongside Katherine Robertson during her time at API,” said API President and CEO Caleb Crosby. “Katherine’s move is a continuation of what we do at API, as people join our team, craft and influence policy, and then take their expertise to public office. She is joining the legacy left by Mayor Sandy Stimpson, Congressman Gary Palmer, Judge Tom Parker and many others who were all once members of the API team and now serve in government. We wish Katherine all the best as she joins the attorney general’s team and look forward to working with her in her new capacity.”
Robertson started her career with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Intergovernmental and Public Liaison in 2006, before going on to be a law clerk while she worked on her law degree from the University of Alabama. Upon completion of her J.D., Robertson served as Legislative Counsel for Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee for little over a year before heading to API in April 2013.
At API, Robertson began as senior policy counsel and went on to become vice president in 2014.
