RALEIGH, NC—Frank Hill, former chief of staff to Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC), has joined Capstrat—the former Capital Strategies—to help launch the firm’s Washington, D.C., office. Capstrat will offer federal government relations and public affairs services, complementing the strong regional public affairs offering in its Raleigh headquarters office.
“We have always been called upon for our expertise in public affairs. That’s how Capstrat began,” said Ken Eudy, Capstrat’s CEO. “As we expand our services to meet the needs of clients, we also are focusing in key areas of growth. Organizations in North Carolina increasingly are affected by what happens in Washington, and we want to be the firm they turn to when they need help.”
Eudy is a former lobbyist and served as executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party. Prior to working with Sen. Dole, Hill was chief of staff to Congressman Alex McMillan (R-NC) from Charlotte, and a partner in The McMillan Group government relations firm.
Says Hill, “In both government and the private sector, I have always worked hard to help North Carolina-based organizations succeed in Washington. By affiliating with Capstrat, we can offer a complete bipartisan service for organizations that need help working with Congress and the federal government.”
Capstrat will represent the interests of North Carolina businesses, universities, research organizations, non-profits, and state and local governments before Congress and federal agencies.
