GREG LEMHOUSE

Partner

Professional Background

Greg moved to Southern Oregon in 1995, where he served in law enforcement for two decades, retiring as a Lieutenant and Division Commander for the Medford Police Department. 
 
Working in law enforcement and later in a command level position taught Greg the importance of preparation and honed his ability to be a high-level problem solver.  He also developed a deep appreciation for community service and the need for strong non-profit community service groups to assist those most in need and those who are often underserved and underrepresented. 
 
Upon his retirement from law enforcement, Greg joined Brammo Motorcycles, an electric motorcycle company based in Ashland as their Director of International Government Affairs. In this role, he traveled the world extensively working with governments to update their laws to allow electric motorcycles into their countries, change their tax laws and incentives for electric motorcycles. During this time, Greg created several strong relationships in various countries and within various organizations, including the U.S. Commercial Services Division of the State Department.   
 
After Brammo was purchased by Polaris, Greg began his consulting career and joining JWA Public Affairs in the role as a lobbyist and later as Vice President for Client Relations. 
 
In 2019, Greg began his own government relations firm, United Strategies (a sole proprietorship).  In January of 2023, Greg partnered with Carrie Reed to form United Strategies & Consulting LLC.   
 
Through all his experiences, there has been a common thread, that being the need to build strong relationships, understand what people need and the ability to solve problems in a strategic and collaborative manner.  

Political Experience

Greg served as an Ashland City Councilor from 2008-2018. The challenging political environment of Ashland provided Greg with the valuable experience of local politics where constituents expect to be heard and their needs addressed in an upfront and transparent manner.  

 

His time on the council also reinforced with him the value of problem solving within the government system and the impact local government can have in supporting vital community partners.   Greg served the City of Ashland registered as an independent, which allowed him to work with people from all sides of the issue to find common ground and the best solution to move forward.  As a result, Greg enjoyed political support, winning each of his three elections by wide margins. 

Community Engagement

Greg has served on non-profits boards such as:  the Ashland Emergency Food Bank (Past President), the Southern Oregon Humane Society (So Humane), Resolve and service clubs such as the Ashland Lithia Springs Rotary Club, where he was a Paul Harris Fellow.
