Jasinowski will be based in Washington, D.C., and will work closely with the firm’s Washington and New York offices to provide Brunswick’s global clients with strategic counsel on how to navigate U.S. political, regulatory and financial challenges.
“Jerry’s unparalleled experience at the crossroads of business and politics will serve our clients well, and we’re delighted to welcome him to our team,” said David Shapiro, partner and head of the firm’s Washington office. “He has long been at the forefront of the national debate identifying the economic and business trends that are transforming all facets of global manufacturing.”
