Jo Morris, formerly Legislative Affairs Director for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), is joining the Tallahassee lobbying firm of PinPoint Results.
Morris’ first day on the job is Wednesday.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Jo’s caliber and broad range of experience join our team,” said Robert Beck, President of PinPoint Results.
“She’s established herself at the Capitol as a tireless advocate and honest broker – traits critical for every successful lobbyist,” he added. “She works hard and gets results, which is exactly what our clients require of us.
“And then of course, there’s the added benefit of Jo’s contagious enthusiasm and deep respect of people and the legislative process.”
Morris has held other key positions in the Rick Scott administration, including Legislative Affairs Director for the Department of Elder Affairs and Deputy Legislative Affairs Director with the Department of Health.
She has also been Director of Cabinet and Legislative Affairs at the Office of Financial Regulation.
“I’m so excited to take the skills and experience I’ve gained in working for the Scott Administration and apply them as an effective advocate in the private sector,” Morris said.
“What’s also awesome is joining a team I’ve come to know and observe at the Capitol that works hard for their clients and achieves results.”
Morris was featured in the Winter 2016 edition of Influence Magazine’s “Rising Stars,” which featured 22 young achievers in the Sunshine State’s government affairs sector.
She joins the rest of the PinPoint Results team: Managing Partner Tanya Jackson; Marti Coley Eubanks, the former House Speaker Pro Tempore who joined PinPoint Results this August; Robert Beck, President; Senior Associate Bryan Cherry, and Carter McMillian, Associate.
Morris, a Pembroke Pines native, has undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science from Florida State University.
