WALTHAM, MA— Racepoint Group, a specialist in digital media relations and part of Larry Weber’s W2 communications group, is opening a formal Washington, D.C., office and expanding its corporate capabilities with the addition of three senior practitioners with extensive experience in public affairs and government relations.

The Washington team, appointed shortly after crisis and issues management expert Rich Blewitt joined the firm as a senior advisor, will be led by executive vice president David Whitmore, formerly of Qorvis Communications, where he had management oversight for the firm’s business with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Prior to Qorvis, Whitmore served as executive vice president and chief financial officer and member of the board of directors of Shandwick Washington/The Cassidy Companies

 

“What’s exciting about our new corporate and public affairs practice is that our offering is entirely based on a contemporary view of communications in a digital age, or World 2.0,” says Weber. “Clients, recognizing the rising importance of social media and Racepoint’s expertise in this arena, have increasingly come to us for help with issues and crisis management, public affairs, government relations and issues advocacy.”

 

Whitmore will be joined by Brian Lunde and Timothy Binning, senior consultants in issues management and government relations, both of whom previously worked at Rowan & Blewitt.
