David Albers/Staff Connie Mack IV gives his concession speech to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Estero.

Former Congressman Connie Mack IV has joined Liberty Partners Group as a partner and senior policy adviser in Washington, D.C.

Mack, who represented Florida's 14th Congressional District as a Fort Myers Republican for eight years, will focus on legislative and regulatory strategy for the lobbying firm's clients and will play an integral role in the firm's client growth.

In November, Mack lost in his bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat.

"His extensive experience and relationships are an invaluable addition to our clients and team," said Andrew L. Woods, chairman and managing partner of Liberty Partners Group.

In Congress, Mack served on the Transportation & Infrastructure, Budget, Government Oversight, and Foreign Affairs Committees. And as chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Mack was engaged in international business and political issues that impacted Latin America and the entire Western Hemisphere.

Mack served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2005 to 2013. His wife, Mary Bono Mack, was a U.S. representative from California's 45th Congressional District from 1998-2013. His father Connie Mack III, is a retired U.S. senator from Florida, who also serves as Chairman Emeritus of Liberty Partners Group.

Jeffrey M. Cohen, Mack's chief of staff in Congress, also joined Liberty Partners Group as a partner in Washington, D.C.
