 RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Reef C. Ivey, II, who has been General Counsel of Nutri/System, Inc. for the past seven years, joined the Raleigh, N.C. office of Patton, Boggs & Blow Feb. 1, 1993.
 Ivey was one of the four principal owners of Nutri/System, Inc. weight loss centers, and joined the company in 1985. He served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary while helping to transform the company into one of the more dominant players in the weight loss industry.
 Prior to his posts at Nutri/System, Inc., Ivey has served as president of the international division of Wilson Foods Corp. and vice president of world trade for PepsiCo International. In 1992 he began a term as chairman of the North Carolina State University Board of Visitors. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Outward Bound School.
 "We are very excited to have Reef join us," said Charles B. Robson, Jr., managing partner of the firm's Raleigh office. "His skills in international business and his superior understanding of the effects of public policy on business activities will be very important to the firm."
 Timothy J. May, the firm's managing partner in Washington, said that he anticipated that Ivey would be working primarily with the firm's existing clients, and with prospective clients in North Carolina, helping them develop approaches to legislative and other public policy issues that are expected to develop with a change in administration in Washington. "The new administration's policies and plan will have an important impact on the business and economic decisions of our clients. Reef Ivey, with his years of significant business experience, will be valuable to Patton, Boggs & Blow in helping our clients express their views and to participate in the formation of these plans and policies as they are developed into a legislation."
 Patton, Boggs & Blow, with its principal office in Washington, D.C., and offices in Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C.; Baltimore; Dallas, Texas; and Denver, Colo., is a law firm of over 200 lawyers. The firm concentrates on public policy issues and other issues affecting business, both nationally and internationally.
 Initially formed in 1962 by James R. Patton as a law firm specializing in international business, Patton, Boggs & Blow today has earned wide recognition for the effectiveness of its legislative practice. According to "Beachem's Guide to Key Lobbyists," Patton, Boggs & Blow has been described as "one of the powerhouse firms in the capital whose lawyer lobbyists have contacts deep within both political parties and know how to tap those contacts for maximum effect."
 Ivey, originally from Lumberton, N.C., received his Bachelors Degree from North Carolina State in 1965 and his law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1968.
