Republican spokeswoman moves to the lobby

Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2013 at 10:07 AM

TO THE LOBBY: Katherine Vasilos
I reported this on Twitter yesterday, but today comes the formal announcement that Katherine Vasilos, who was a fiery and frequent public mouthpiece for the Arkansas Republican Party during its triumphant election year in 2012, has moved to the lobby.

The former GOP communications director will be a public affairs associate at Noble Strategies.

Key phrase in their news release:

Noble Strategies is a bipartisan, state and federal government affairs and issue management firm

The Noble firm is — or was — viewed as having a Democratic tilt. See 2010 campaign contributions, for example. In these new days, the most successful firms have people who can work both sides of the aisle. At least until only one side matters.

Katherine Vasilos, former Communications Director for the state Republican Party, has joined Noble Strategies as a Public Affairs Associate in their Little Rock office.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Noble Strategies team and look forward to working with their diverse group of clients to assist in the promotion of their businesses,” said Vasilos.

Vasilos will be responsible for managing the public affairs and lobbying issues associated with the Noble Strategies client base.

“Katherine brings a tremendous amount of political communication and public affairs experience to our firm,” said Ben Noble, President of Noble Strategies. “We are pleased to add her to the team and know her expertise will bring positive results to our clients.”

A native of Hot Springs, Vasilos graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations. She previously served as Communications Director for the Republican Party of Arkansas from 2009 to 2012.

Noble Strategies is a bipartisan, state and federal government affairs and issue management firm with offices in Little Rock, Arkansas and Washington, D.C. For more information, please visit www.noblestrat.com.
