“Todd has been an integral part of my staff for many years, and I am excited that he has agreed to serve the citizens of our state in this important way,” said Corker. “Todd is a driven and conscientious leader with a tremendous work ethic and commitment to public service. He will be an outstanding addition to our team.”
In this role, Womack will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the state and will oversee the six state offices which will open in Memphis, Jackson, Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville and the Tri-Cities after the beginning of the year.
“I am honored to serve Senator-elect Corker and all of the citizens of Tennessee in this role,” said Womack. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to help build a service and results oriented state operation that moves every community in the state forward and provides an open door to Tennesseans from all walks of life.”
Womack began his career serving as the spokesperson for Erlanger Medical Center, one of the state’s largest tertiary care facilities. He later served as Director of Public Relations for the UnumProvident Corporation before joining then Mayor Bob Corker as his Communications Director in the Chattanooga Mayor’s Office. During the Senate campaign, Womack held the post of Political Director and later became the campaign’s Communications Director. This past November, Senator-elect Corker tapped Womack to lead his transition and begin setting up both his Washington and Tennessee Senate offices. Womack and his wife Katie have three children, Laura Kate, Rebekah and John.
Until Corker’s swearing-in on January 4, Womack will continue to serve as the point of contact for issues related to the transition.
