WASHINGTON, D.C.—Vox Global, a public affairs subsidiary of Fleishman-Hillard, has hired Corey Ealons, who most recently served as White House director of African American media. Ealons will serve Vox as senior vice president in the agency's Washington, D.C., headquarters, where he will lead political, public policy and reputational campaigns.
At the White House, Ealons served as the principle national liaison for African American media for President Barack Obama, members of the White House executive staff, and senior Administration Officials. He held the same position during the 2008 Obama-Biden general election campaign. In that role, Ealons developed messaging and outreach strategies for issues as wide ranging as The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to healthcare reform.
Ealons began his career in public service as a member of the armed forces before moving into the political arena with efforts including Bill Bradley's run for President, the Congressional races of Artur Davis, Jack Conway and Jim Marshall, and the Kerry-Edwards Campaign where he served as a national regional political director. He was called to Capitol Hill to serve as the deputy chief of staff and communications director for Davis, and served as chief political advisor and communications strategist to the Congressman.
Prior to his public sector service, Ealons was at Ketchum, where he served clients in commercial marketing and strategic communications.
