Former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has found a new job. Rosetta Stone, the language-learning company, has hired Fenty to be an outside consultant.

The Arlington-based software giant says it hired the former mayor for his connections, his ties to D.C. and his role in the education reform movement.

"Here's a for-profit organization that's looking to have doors opened into the world of education dollars, and I think Adrian Fenty provides that opportunity," says Chuck Thies, a political consultant based in D.C.

Since leaving office, Fenty has capitalized on his education reform credentials. Earlier this month, he signed up with a speakers bureau to deliver paid speeches on the issue.
