A two-time revolving door congressional aide has once again left Capitol Hill, this time in favor of a lobbying position with international financial services company Nomura.

Most recently legislative director to Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.), Randy Ross is now executive director of public affairs for Nomura's operations in the Americas. Nomura is the biggest brokerage in Japan and boasts offices in Asia, Europe and the Americas. When Wall Street heavyweight Lehman Brothers folded under bankruptcy in 2008, Nomura grew its footprint by purchasing the investment bank's Asian division and parts of its European operation.

Ross arrived on Capitol Hill in 2004, working as a legislative correspondent for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for more than two years. Upon leaving the Senate, Ross took a lobbying position with Washington lobbying firm BGR Group. While at BGR, Ross lobbied for a variety of clients, including those in the housing and insurance industries.

Ross returned to Congress in 2011, joining Miller's staff as a financial services policy adviser, before being promoted to legislative director last year. Miller is vice chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Ross studied finance and economics at California Polytechnic State University.
