Joe McCann, a former House Democratic Office staff director, has joined the Pittman Law Group as Senior Policy Director, the firm announced Wednesday.
McCann will work alongside attorney Sean Pittman to direct the firm’s lobbying efforts.
McCann was a founding member of Ballard Partners, where he served as senior executive vice president.
“We are very excited about Joe McCann joining our team,” Pittman said in a statement. “Joe was instrumental in helping to grow one of Tallahassee’s most successful firms, and we look forward to him bringing that experience and expertise.”
Before entering the private sector, McCann held various positions in federal and state campaigns, including serving as campaign manager for Attorney General Bob Butterworth’s final election.
He also was senior legislative aide to former state lawmaker Ron Klein, and a legislative correspondent for former Florida Congressman James Bacchus, both Democrats.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to add my knowledge and experience to the team at Pittman Law Group,” McCann said. “I have worked with Sean for many years, and have always admired his work ethic and effectiveness on behalf of his clients.”
