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.
