Atlanta, GA – Thompson Victory Group today announced that former State Representative Matt Ramsey has joined the bipartisan government relations firm.
"I am excited to join the dynamic team of talented professionals and offer my experience to an impressive array of clients," said Ramsey. "As a former lawmaker and a practicing attorney, I look forward to contributing to the company's stellar record of legislative success."
First elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2007, Ramsey served through January 2017 and held leadership positions including Floor Leader for Governor Sonny Perdue, vice-chair of the Republican House Caucus and Majority Caucus Whip of the Georgia House.
"We're excited to welcome Matt to the team, and as we expand, we're committed to providing our clients with the very best service and support to accomplish their legislative goals," said Graham Thompson, managing partner of Thompson Victory Group. The firm is headquartered in midtown Atlanta and represents Amazon, Cisco Systems, Fulton County, Sprint and other market leaders.
Ramsey has a track record of legislative leadership. In addition to serving as the Secretary of Appropriations, the committee charged with writing amended and general fiscal year budgets for state agencies, Ramsey served on Rules, Regulated Industries and Ways and Means committees in the General Assembly after spending six years working for Congressman Mac Collins, advising the office tax and budget policy, transportation, energy and defense.
During his time in office, Representative Ramsey helped author and pass key pieces of legislation, including measures to safeguard the health and safety of Georgia's children and streamline Georgia's tax code.
Ramsey is also a partner in the general business law firm of Warner, Hooper and Ramsey, which focuses on commercial transactions and general litigation.
The Peachtree City Republican said this week he has joined the ranks of Thompson Victory Group, a bipartisan government relations firm.
Ramsey was first elected to the Georgia House in 2007 and was a floor leader to Sonny Perdue and later majority caucus whip in the House.
Once a rising star in the GOP, Ramsey is perhaps best known for a 2011 crackdown that allowed local police officers to question some suspects about their immigration status. He decided in February 2016 not to seek another term in the Legislature, citing his family’s needs.
