After a historic presidential campaign, during which Jamestown Associates was President Trump’s lead ad agency in the general election, several people from Jamestown have been appointed to positions in the Trump administration. And even though we’ve always known our team was second to none, these exceptional political pros’ departure is still bittersweet.
Tony’s relationship with Jamestown Associates began as a client. He later joined Jamestown as an EVP, bringing a bright spotlight to the firm through his work with Fox News. Tony's creative campaigns have received prominent industry recognition. This week, he was named by the president as the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs in the Treasury Department.
As an EVP at Jamestown, John opened our Florida office and helped extend our reach to the Sunshine State. During the final stretch of the election, John worked on the ground tirelessly to help President Trump win Florida. He handled media relations for EPA Director Scott Pruitt during the transition.
Tough, smart, dogged, Kaelan always found a way to get the impossible done. At Jamestown, he was the Deputy to Jason Miller, the firm’s partner and EVP, who went on to serve the Trump campaign as the Senior Communications Advisor and the transition team as Communications Director. In his role, Kaelan was instrumental in developing media strategies, conducting opposition research, and maintaining budgets for dozens of political candidates and advocacy groups across the country. His talents were noted by the incoming administration, which he joined as the White House Strategic Communications Advisor and Special Projects Manager.
Alexa was Jamestown’s Director of Media Booking. In her role, she prepared clients for interviews, drafted press releases, shaped messages, and maintained a vast network of press contacts. She did her job so well, President Trump appointed Alexa as the White House Director of Broadcast Media.
We're sorry to see members of the Jamestown family depart, but we're happy for all of them. Best of luck shaping history!
