Two years in, Ballard Partners Financial Service Group continues to grow

The practice represents some of the top financial services companies in the world.

The Financial Services Group at lobbying firm Ballard Partners is approaching its two-year anniversary, and just like the industries it specializes in, it’s growing at a rapid pace.

Ballard Partners launched the practice in August 2020 and brought on former Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater to run the show.

Though many know Atwater for his political career — he served a decade in the Legislature and was twice elected statewide — he also has an extensive resume in the financial sector. He spent nearly 20 years at Barnett Bank, including stints as president of the bank’s Treasure Coast and Broward divisions, and helped smooth the transition when Barnett was acquired by NationsBank and subsequently by Bank of America.
