A brief follow-up on Wednesday’s post sharing former D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown’s holiday greetings. In his note to supporters, Brown mentioned “establishing a base of financial support for my family” over the coming months.
What kind of base? It appears Brown is starting a business. Earlier this year, Brown filed incorporation papers with the city for LKB Enterprises LLC.
The firm’s home address is Brown’s Hillcrest residence, and its registered agent is Brown’s wife. But what is LKB Enterprises going to do, exactly?
Brown did not reply to an e-mail seeking comment on the company, but papers filed with the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs indicate the following:
The business is organized to proved business consulting services to various business entities. To advise, counsel and negotiate business opportunities for potential clients that want to enhance business opportunities, To provide communications and media services to various clients. In additional to provide education and training services for business entities.
Before joining the D.C. Council, Brown served as director of the Maryland/D.C. Minority Supplier Development Council, a group that aims to build ties between minority-owned businesses with larger corporations. He also served as a mid-level official in the Clinton administration Commerce Department.
