Meet Joey

Joey previously served as Chief of Staff to the Governor of Mississippi. At the time of his appointment, Joey was the youngest Governor's chief of staff in the country.

Having worked directly with the White House on key funding, recovery, and development projects on behalf of Mississippi, Joey is intimately familiar with the barriers that prevent companies from achieving greater success. He enjoys working with companies to overcome those obstacles and help them grow. Joey and his wife Kate live in Madison with their young son.
