MWWPR Continues to Build Influential PA Arm
MWW PR, one of the world’s most influential PR companies, has just acquired Capital Public Affairs, Inc. (CPA). The move further solidifies MWW’s position as a leading public affairs consultancy. Trenton based CPA is well known as a powerhouse team in both parties along these lines, so the two New Jersey teams combined make for powerful PR medicine.
According to the news from MWW, the firm’s Trenton office will absorb CPA’s team experts including; specialists in government relations, coalition building, issues management and grassroots campaigns, among other disciplines. CPA’s Stephen D. Reid and Tom Cosentino, and Charles “Chip” Dutcher, are among the latter firm’s key management taken on-board MWW. CPA’s founder, Steven E. Some, who was made Senior Vice President and GM of the Trenton office, offered this:
“Joining MWW is an exciting step for our agency and by partnering with the most established, bi-partisan firm in the state, we’re immediately able to offer a wider platform of services to our clients. From both a practice and a cultural standpoint, this is a terrific fit. MWW’s entrepreneurial spirit and results-driven approach align with our own values, and our firms’ suite of services perfectly complement one another.”
MWW President and CEO Michael Kempner
, had this to add via his Message from the CEO newsletter today:
“I am also thrilled to welcome CPA Partner and President Steven E. Some who is joining us as senior vice president and general manager of the Trenton office. He is an authority on legislative and public affairs issues and has an extensive network of relationships that span from Trenton and Washington, DC to cities throughout the nation, bringing more than three decades of experience to MWW.”
Kempner, one of Washington’s most prolific Democratic fundraisers, combined with the influence and experienced Some has, makes for one of the most powerful political influencing teams in the business.
