Former D.C. mayor Adrian M. Fenty will work as an outside adviser and counsel for Heffler, Radetich & Saitta, a Philadelphia-based accounting and consulting firm.

The firm announced Thursday that Fenty, who lost his reelection bid in September’s Democratic primary, would “help further develop and enhance the firm’s preeminent position in class-action litigation support services, as well as health care industry consulting and forensic accounting services.”

“My work as mayor gave me first-hand exposure to what was and is possible in evolution and growth of services and business, despite government’s complex bureaucracy,” Fenty said in a news release.

The release did not indicate that Fenty would relocate from the nation’s capital to the City of Brotherly Love. Fenty said the day after the primary that he would remain in the District, where he was born and raised and attended Howard University law school after his undergraduate work at Oberlin College.

But Fenty appears to have looked outside the city for work. He confirmed that he would like to shape minds at Oberlin as a visiting teacher. And this month, Fenty signed with Greater Talent Network, a Manhattan-based speakers bureau for celebrities.
