Brian Wilson combines national government affairs experience with local project success. As a senior legislative assistant to Senator Trent Lott for five years, Wilson managed an array of policy areas including appropriations, infrastructure, the environment, and natural resources. During his time on Lott’s staff he managed approximately $200 million in funding for Mississippi through the annual Energy & Water, Interior & Environment, Agriculture, and VA-HUD Appropriations bills. Wilson served as field director for Lieutenant Governor Amy Tuck’s reelection, a field representative for Senator Roger Wicker’s first U.S. House campaign, and on numerous other congressional and statewide campaigns. He represented Mississippi as a delegate to the Republican National Convention and several state conventions as well as serving in leadership positions for local Republican executive committees since 1992.

Since returning to Mississippi, Wilson has successfully handled projects for local and state governments, as well as clients in higher education, economic and community development, tourism, and the defense industry. A native of Macon, Mississippi, Wilson served as the founding executive director of the Noxubee Alliance, an innovative public-private partnership promoting economic development, tourism, and community development in Noxubee County. The Noxubee Alliance landed the largest economic development project in the county’s history and became a model for rural areas seeking to create jobs through promotion of asset-based natural resource and cultural heritage tourism. Wilson’s leadership earned the 2008 Community Economic Development Award from the Mississippi Development Authority and Mississippi Economic Development Council.

In his spare time, Wilson has chaired the LQC Lamar House Advisory Committee in Oxford and continues to speak to civic groups and write about the legacy of LQC Lamar, the greatest national statesman produced by Mississippi. Wilson also supports several charities and community initiatives, such as the mentoring of first generation college bound students, Mississippi’s three National Heritage Areas, and the Episcopal Church.

Brian has helped me steer millions of dollars in Federal funding to large and small communities all across Mississippi. In the process, we have improved infrastructure, created hope and opportunity in communities where none existed before, and provided a better quality of life for Mississippians throughout the State. Brian is truly one of those unique individuals who has a thirst for knowledge about the issue areas he is assigned.

Craig Whitehead of Koch Foods singled out Noxubee Alliance director Brian Wilson for his 'professionalism above and beyond' the company's expectations. Koch Foods is the single largest economic development project in Noxubee County history.
