A group of public affairs professionals has formed Agenda, a new national public affairs firm based in D.C.
Agenda is directed by Craig Pattee, former president of Dutko Worldwide and pioneer of the practice of engaging governors on federal issues; Doug Turner, former chief executive of DW Turner, billed as the largest southwestern public affairs firm, and an expert on state and national political strategies; and Max Hamel, former partner at Allied Public Affairs, who, said Agenda, has a reputation as one of the most effective organizers of multi-state public affairs campaigns in the nation.
According to a release, Agenda has assembled “a tight-knit group of political and communications operatives from both sides of the aisle along with experienced corporate public affairs professionals who share a knack for creativity, innovation and winning campaigns.”
Agenda will specialize in five core areas:
-- Advocacy and Grassroots
-- Strategic Communication
-- Bilingual and multicultural programs
-- Digital and Creative Services
-- Issues Management
