MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Wesley Britt, husband of U.S. Senator-elect Katie Britt, has joined Fine, Geddie and Associates, one of Alabama’s premiere governmental affairs firms.
Britt had previously worked in economic development and government affairs for Alabama Power, but stepped down last year to fully support his wife’s campaign for the U.S. Senate. He will be based in Fine & Geddie’s downtown Montgomery office servicing state-level clients and take no part in federal lobbying efforts, according to a statement from the firm.
“I am thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to join a top-notch team at Fine Geddie,” Britt said in an announcement. “Joe Fine and Bob Geddie are first-ballot hall of famers, and I can’t wait to work with everyone at the firm to serve our clients and strengthen our great state.”
Britt is also well known for his football career, first as an All-American offensive tackle for the University of Alabama and then as a Super Bowl-winning New England Patriot.
The firm’s principals, Joe Fine and Bob Geddie, expressed their enthusiasm for Britt as an addition to their team in a joint statement.
“Wesley shares our love of the state of Alabama, and we look forward to having him as a member of our team,” said Joe Fine and Bob Geddie, founding partners of Fine Geddie. “Wesley’s intricate knowledge of Alabama’s economic development landscape, extensive experience in Montgomery’s governmental affairs arena, deep roots in communities across the state, proven track record of meaningful relationship building, and his true heart for service will enhance our firm’s mission and record of success.”
Wesley and Katie Britt reside in Montgomery with their two children.
