“Kari and Scott both have sterling reputations for client advocacy,” said Nancy G. Linnan, who chairs the firm’s Government Law and Consulting practice. “Their extensive regulatory and lobbying experience is a tremendous asset to our team.”

Here’s more from the release:

Her career history includes serving as vice president of government relations for the Florida Building Material Association and, before that, as governmental liaison for the Florida Association of Counties.

Jenkins has a 20-year career in the government and political arena. Earlier in his career, he was a large bank’s chief lobbyist in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Before that, he was the senior vice president/deputy director of government affairs for the Florida Bankers Association. Jenkins holds an Institute for Organizational Management (IOM) certification from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
