Ryan Mahoney Joins Government Affairs Team at Georgia Chamber

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the state's oldest and largest business advocacy group, has named Ryan M. Mahoney as its new Director of Government Affairs.

Mahoney is an experienced business journalist, having spent three years working at the Birmingham Business Journal and the last four years as a reporter covering state and local politics and government for the Atlanta Business Chronicle. A prolific writer, Mahoney has filed hundreds of stories during his time in Georgia on a variety of topics, ranging from taxation, transportation and economic development to in-depth articles on government waste and reform. He has appeared as a regular guest on the "Georgia Gang" TV program.

His new duties at the Georgia Chamber will include lobbying for business issues at the state capitol, assisting in the formation of public policy issues and supporting government affairs communications.

Ryan, a native of St. Petersburg, Florida, is a graduate of The University of the South, in Sewanee, Tennessee, with a degree in English, and was managing editor of his school newspaper, The Sewanee Purple.

The Georgia Chamber is the grassroots voice of business, vigorously representing its diverse membership in the public policy arena. As it constantly works to protect Georgia’s enviable pro-business environment, the Georgia Chamber remains mindful of its mission to keep the state economically prosperous, educationally competitive and environmentally responsible.
