“Mark has been a successful political strategist on some of the highest profile campaigns around the country, developing and implementing winning strategies for candidates as well as clients in the private sector,” said former U.S. Congressman and McGuireWoods Consulting President L.F. Payne. “We are excited to have him join the team as his services will be a tremendous asset to existing and future clients.
“His presence will also be a valuable addition to our expanding multistate government relations practice, both through his work on the ground in Austin and through his political relationships and expertise nationally.”
