Raffetto Herman Strategic Communications (RH Strategic) announced that communications and marketing veteran Bonnie McLaughlin has joined the agency’s growing Washington, D.C., office as vice president, Public Sector. McLaughlin brings her global perspective to advise the agency’s expanding portfolio of clients seeking to do business with government or inform public policy and regulation.
With decades of experience, McLaughlin has worked with leading brands worldwide. Prior to joining RH Strategic, McLaughlin was the executive director of global partnerships and marketing at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business lobby. In this role, she represented the U.S. business community and educated members and legislators on how policy impacts entities and business outcomes.
“Bonnie is a top-notch public affairs professional who is a connector for clients and drives solutions. Her experience working in Washington, D.C. with many of America’s largest brands adds strategic and creative firepower to our clients seeking to grow their government business and influence the policies and regulations that shape markets,” said John Raffetto, CEO and co-founder of RH Strategic. “Bonnie immediately recognized the unique value of the stellar team and client portfolio we have built over 15 years in D.C., and we are thrilled she will be a key member of our team going forward.”
As a connector, McLaughlin brings together organizations and partners. During her time at the Tribeca Film Festival, McLaughlin managed partnerships and sponsorships with global brands such as United Airlines, Procter & Gamble and AT&T. As RH Strategic expands its services for the public sector, her experience will provide important perspectives and insights for its clients.
“I am excited to combine my passions for discovering commonalities, creating connections, and providing my global experience to propel RH Strategic’s public sector portfolio,” said McLaughlin.
