Brunswick Group, the strategic advisory firm focused on critical issues, today announced that Patti Solis Doyle has joined as a Partner in Brunswick’s Washington, DC office.
She will advise clients on a range of critical business issues and, in particular, on public affairs, politics and communications.
Patti joins Brunswick from Solis Strategies, the communications firm she founded in 2012 advising businesses and non-profits. She is a well-respected and experienced political advisor, with more than 30 years of experience in politics, presidential campaigns, and public service.
She served as a senior advisor to the Obama-Biden presidential campaign during the 2012 presidential election, and during the 2008 general election she was chief of staff for then vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden.
As campaign manager of Senator Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid in 2007-2008, Patti was the first Hispanic woman to lead a presidential campaign. In 2000, she served as chief of staff to the First Lady’s first Senate campaign, and later managed Senator Clinton’s political operations, PAC, and 2006 re-election campaign.
In 1991, she was among the first to join then Governor Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign. She served as a senior advisor to Hillary Clinton throughout that campaign and during two terms in the White House.
Neal Wolin, Chief Executive Officer said: “I am delighted that Patti is joining Brunswick as a Partner in our Washington, DC office. Her knowledge and experience of politics and public affairs, and at the highest levels of government, as well as her impressive political and business network, will be of enormous value to our clients.”
George Little, Partner and Washington, DC Office Head, said: “We are excited to have such a seasoned political veteran join Brunswick. At a time when politics is at best unpredictable, it’s comforting to know Patti is on our team.”
On joining Brunswick, Patti said: “I am thrilled to join Brunswick, which is known worldwide as a trusted advisor to companies on a range of critical issues. The uncertainties in politics have created new opportunities to help clients in business.”
