North Texas – The North Texas Commission, a unique public-private partnership that drives large, impactful projects and advocates for regional issues, has hired Holli Davies as Vice President of Advocacy. In this role, Davies will lead the legislative initiatives of the organization and its North Texas Advocacy Coalition.

In this role, she led all operations of the eastern counties within the 10th Congressional District of Texas managing the Chairman’s public perception, overseeing constituent relations and serving as a liaison between the Washington, D.C. office and the local community.
