Miller & Martin PLLC has announced an expansion of their Practice Development Office. In August, Mary Lee Rice was appointed Director of Practice Development to oversee firm-wide business development and marketing. She will provide strategic direction to the firm’s practice groups and regional business development committees.

A native of Washington D.C., Ms. Rice moved to Chattanooga in 2012 from Birmingham, Ala., where she was Associate Vice President for Finance and Administration with UAB and a two-term city councilor. She brings more than 25 years of executive management and business development experience to Miller & Martin.

In January, Miller & Martin hired Bibber S. McCurdy as Practice Development Manager for its Chattanooga office. She will work with Ms. Rice on business development, marketing strategies and branding.

Ms. McCurdy brings more than 14 years of experience in strategic healthcare marketing and international law firm business development to Miller & Martin. She serves on committees for several local nonprofit organizations and is involved in various charitable associations.

“Mary Lee and Bibber share a wealth of skills and strategic insight that will be integral to Miller & Martin’s practice development efforts and our internal and external business relationships,” stated Jim Haley, firm Chairman.
