Former Washington Mayor Anthony Williams has joined the local office of McKenna Long & Aldridge as a senior strategic advisor in the public policy practice, according to a release today from the firm.
Williams served two terms as mayor, from 1999 to 2007. Before he was elected, Williams was the city's independent chief financial officer, and he was the first chief financial officer for the U.S. Department of Agriculture under former President Bill Clinton.
Eric Tanenblatt, head of the firm’s government affairs practice, said in a statement that Williams “brings a tremendous amount of leadership, knowledge, and experience to our government affairs practice.
“His ability to advise state and local municipalities, political leaders, and investors is based on an extraordinary track record of success,” Tanenblatt said.
Williams was not immediately available for comment.
