Kristen Thomaselli is the Senior Director of Strategic Communications at Forbes Tate Partners – she joined the firm in Fall 2015.
Ms. Thomaselli brings both Capitol Hill and private sector experience to Forbes Tate Partners’ growing strategic communications, grassroots, and public affairs practices.
Kristen’s keen ability to create compelling messages on behalf of the firm’s clients – from a variety of industries with diverse needs – has helped to advance key initiatives in policy areas, such as healthcare, energy, finance, and labor relations.
Specifically, Ms. Thomaselli’s ability to produce favorable exposure – on the national, state, and local levels – for Forbes Tate Partners’ clients, and their stances on pertinent policy issues, adds depth to the firm’s public affairs efforts. Along those lines, Kristen has designed and implemented earned media campaigns for a broad range of key stakeholders – including Fortune 500 companies, think tanks, nonprofits, and national labor unions.
Generating media placements in premier outlets – such as the New York Times, USA TODAY, CNN, Forbes, and the Wall Street Journal – helps to position Forbes Tate Partners’ clients on center stage of the policy issues they care about most.
Before joining the Forbes Tate team, Kristen managed clients’ media relations and public outreach efforts as the director of earned media at DC-based Keybridge Communications.
Prior to her tenure at Keybridge Communications, Ms. Thomaselli — a West Virginia native — served on the staff of former U.S. Senator John D. Rockefeller, IV.
