Ballard Partners has hired former Jacksonville mayor Lenny Curry as a partner.
The former head of Florida’s biggest city will advocate for Ballard’s clients in its Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Washington offices.
Curry served as Jacksonville mayor from 2015 to 2023. Earlier, he was chairman and vice chairman of the Sunshine State’s Republican Party.
He also was a board member of Jacksonville’s Housing Commission and commissioner of the Florida State Boxing Commission.
Prior to entering politics, Curry was a CPA at PricewaterhouseCoopers from 1994 to 2002 and founder of the ICX Group professional services firm.
Brian Ballard said Curry’s "exemplary stature as a leader in our state and nation is rare and we are especially honored to have him join our firm."
