Clovis Reed has joined Stone-Adams Financial Partners, a business development and consulting firm, as a principal. Reed will be primarily responsible for developing financial solutions for governments and businesses working with challenging growth issues.
Reed will transition in January from his duties as administrator for Rankin County, a position he has held for six years. Prior to Rankin County, Reed served as county administrator in DeSoto, Claiborne and Simpson counties. He also served as assistant director for the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality from 2004 through 2007. His familiarity with local government and officials helped DEQ to bridge the gap as the agency transitioned from regulators to experts ready to assist in the restoration of critical services in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Reed played a key role in the passage legislation allowing the five southern most counties to receive over $600 million in CDBG funds for water and sewer infrastructure.
Reed holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Mississippi and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Mississippi College. In 1998, Clovis was named by the Mississippi Business Journal as one of the “Top 40 Business Leaders Under 40.”
He is a graduate of the John C. Stennis Institute for Government, Executive Leader Development. He also served as a member of the State Wireless Communication Commission and was chair of the Cellular Service Committee that negotiated a statewide contract that benefited state agencies and local governments. Most recently, Reed, a fifth-generation native of Port Gibson, was selected by Gov.-elect Phil Bryant to serve on his Transition Regulatory Policy Committee.
