House Speaker Tim Moore hires former Tillis staffer Andy Munn

Former Thom Tillis policy director Andy Munn is back at the General Assembly after a single month in the lobbying business.

Munn will serve as deputy chief of staff for new House Speaker Tim Moore. Several other Tillis policy aides remain on the speaker’s staff list as well.

Munn’s new job was confirmed by Mollie Young, who started work as Moore’s spokeswoman Tuesday. Young, a former National Republican Congressional Committee and Fox News Channel staffer, said Moore plans to announce the remainder of his staff this week.

Munn, who started his career as a Congressional staffer, left the legislature as Tillis headed to Washington. On Dec. 10, the lobbying firm Troutman Sanders Strategies announced that it had hired Munn as a manager focusing on “matters related to tax, finance, environment, energy, real estate and regulatory reform.”

Troutman Sanders touted Munn’s experience with Tillis as well as his work lobbying for manufacturing company Ingersoll Rand and a real estate group.

“Andy is very well-respected and a proven leader on issues of importance to the business community and he will be a great addition to Troutman Sanders Strategies,” managing partner Bill Scoggin said in the news release.

The December news release has been deleted from Troutman Sanders’ website along with all mentions of Munn.
