NEW YORK—International strategic communications consulting firm Brunswick Group has named former White House senior advisor Jonathan Prince as partner. Prince will work out of both the New York and Washington offices. He is the second partner to join the firm in as many months, following the hiring late last year of former PepsiCo general counsel Robert Sharpe.
From 1992 to 2000, Mr. Prince served in many roles under President Bill Clinton. As senior advisor, he managed NATO’s communications strategy during the war in Kosovo. As a veteran of both Clinton presidential campaigns, Prince also acted as director of national targeting, deputy assistant secretary of state for strategic planning, special assistant to the president, senior policy advisor at the domestic policy council and presidential speechwriter.
“Brunswick’s rapid U.S. growth requires the addition of highly skilled professionals capable of offering top-tier counseling to the executive suite”, said Steve Lipin, senior partner of Brunswick Group in the U.S. “Jonathan brings incredible crisis, government and litigation experience and truly understands how the media operates during a feeding frenzy.”
After leaving the White House, Prince oversaw communications strategies for not-for-profit clients, including the Twin Towers Fund and Giuliani Partners. He was also the chairman and CEO of Govolution, a leading provider of financial transaction processing software to the federal government.
