Prospective GOP candidate for the 2016 nomination Jeb Bush has sold his interests in the consulting firm Jeb Bush & Associates and also in the consulting and investment group Britton Hill, meaning he is now divested from all of his business interests, according to a report by The Hill.

Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell is quoted as saying:

Just as he said he would, Governor Bush has been reviewing his private sector commitments as he contemplates a potential run… Governor Bush finalized that process this month, selling his ownership stakes in Jeb Bush & Associates and in the Britton Hill entities.

This was a natural step as Governor Bush transitioned his time and focus from running his business to increasing his political efforts on behalf of conservative candidates and causes.

The Hill reports:

Bush founded Jeb Bush & Associates after he left the governor’s office in 2007. Bush previously declined to disclose the firm’s clients or finances to the media, according a 2008 report.

He was also a partner in Britton Hill Partners, another consulting firm, and Britton Hill Holdings, an investment firm. The firm filed a document with federal regulators in 2013 that indicated it had over $100 million in assets, The Washington Post reported.

The Post first reported on Bush’s exit from his business commitments.
