PinPoint Results notches $405K in Q2 lobbying fees

The four government affairs experts at PinPoint Results saw their earnings grow to an estimated $405K second quarter of the year, according to newly filed compensation reports.

The new filing indicates Robert Beck, Bryan Cherry, Tanya Jackson and the firm’s new addition, former state Rep. Marti Coley Eubanks, brought in $225,000 in pay from their legislative branch clients and tacked on another $180,000 for executive branch lobbying work — those figures best the firm’s estimated Q1 earnings, which clocked in at $375,000.

Lobbyists are required to report their pay in ranges covering $10,000 increments. PinPoint Result’s estimated earnings of $405,000 is the sum of the middle number for each contract it reported. If they collected the maximum pay from each client, revenues could have topped $700,000.

The team showed a total of 31 legislative clients in its new filing, a small boost over the 29 principals that recorded during the first quarter. The new additions were St. Petersburg-based Companions & Homemakers, Inc. and the Nemours Foundation, where Eubanks had worked as governmental relations director before joining the firm in May.

Topping the legislative report were seven principals that paid an estimated $15,000 apiece: non-profit behavioral health care organization Aspire Health Partners, the Broward County government, the Florida Council on Aging, health services company Independent Living Systems, business software company Infor, medical software company Mediware Information Systems and labor union SEIU 1199 United Health Care Workers.

Another 21 clients, including the new additions, were marked down as paying up to $10,000 apiece for the quarter.

The executive report consisted of the same cast, less Jacksonville-based senior care company Aging True, which only retained the firm for legislative branch work.

Infor and Independent Living Systems topped the executive report as well, with each pitching in another $10,000 to $20,000 for advocacy in front of the Governor and Cabinet. They were joined in that bracket by Tallahassee-based Capital Asphalt. The remaining 27 paid clients that retained Pinpoint Results for executive branch lobbying contributed an estimated $5,000 apiece to the firm’s coffers.

Based on median figures, PinPoint Results has received an estimated $780,000 in lobbying pay through the first six months of the year, putting the government affairs team on track to crack $1.5 million in pay for the whole of 2018.
