Mitch Tyner Appointed Senior Advisor/Director of Regional Affairs

Release No. 17-21 ADV

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Mitch Tyner, an experienced lawyer and previous small business owner and investor from Mississippi, has joined the Office of Advocacy as a Senior Advisor to the Chief Counsel and Director of Regional Affairs. In his new role, Tyner will work closely with the office’s Regional Advocates, who serve as the direct links between their region’s small business owners, state and local government agencies, state legislators, small business associations and the Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

“We are pleased to have Mitch Tyner join our team,” said Major L. Clark III, Acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy. “His previous professional experiences such as owning and operating a small law firm across multiple states, and successfully implementing reorganization practices to revive struggling small businesses make Tyner a great addition to the Office of Advocacy.”

In addition to his experience as a successful businessman and lawyer, Tyner is also an experienced campaign manager, and has taken on leadership roles in federal, state and local campaigns. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science at Mississippi College and went on to receive his Juris Doctor. Tyner also studied Environmental Law at Tulane Law School in New Orleans, LA.

“I have always had a passion for small business” said Tyner. “Owning and operating my own small businesses throughout the years have helped me realize the persistent hard work and dedication required to keep the doors from closing. I am looking forward to helping the federal government support small business and reduce the regulatory burden, consistent with the goals of this administration.”

Tyner will join the Office of Advocacy on its fourth series of Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables in St. Louis, MO and Overland Park, KS. These roundtable events are held to allow small businesses and their stakeholders to tell the office firsthand which federal regulations are affecting them the most.
