Rhett Davis Appointed Small Business Advocate for Region 6
Release No. 17-24 ADV
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rhett Davis has been named small business advocate for Region 6, representing the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
In his role, Davis will be the direct link between the 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.
“It is a great honor to advocate for the small businesses of Region 6,” Davis stated. “Hard-working Americans deserve to have their voices heard, and we are listening very closely to what they have to say.”
Davis has been working on behalf of small business interests in the Louisiana public policy arena throughout his professional career. He has been active in business friendly causes and campaigns in Louisiana, serving as a political consultant and coordinating state and national leadership conferences.
“Rhett Davis is a wonderful addition to our team,” said Major Clark III, acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy. “Small business owners in these states have an exceptional advocate in Mr. Davis. His experience in public policy and as a small business owner will allow him to immediately start making meaningful contributions to our mission.”
The Office of Advocacy’s regional advocates help identify new issues and concerns of small business owners in the nation’s 10 federal regions. They also monitor the impact of federal and state policies on small business at the local level. They work closely with local government officials, state officials and legislators and the chief counsel for advocacy to develop programs and policies that help, rather than hinder, small business growth.
