Rasky Partners, a nationally recognized communications and public affairs firm, has announced that Jeffrey Terrey will serve as a partner of the firm. Longtime team members Graham Shalgian, Alexandra Wich and Kristyn Anderson have also been promoted.
Terrey will continue in his roles as senior vice president in the government relations practice in Boston and leader of the codes and regulations group and expand his responsibilities related to the firm’s growing national portfolio.
“We are thrilled to have Jeff take this next step as a partner of the firm,” said Larry Rasky, CEO and chairman of Rasky Partners. “For over 15 years, Jeff has provided our clients with the strategic counsel, expert guidance and first-rate service that have become synonymous with this firm. He is an integral member of our public affairs team and the catalyst behind the rapid success of our codes and regulations consultancy. ”
Terrey joined Rasky Partners in 2002 after serving as political director for Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Robert Reich, who served as secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton. Prior to that, Terrey was the legislative director at the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General. He also served on the transition team for Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.
“I’m honored to be stepping into this new role,” said Terrey. “We have seen a steady increase in our work in New England, but also with other regional, multi-state and multi-national organizations. I have full faith that our team will maintain that momentum, while continuing to provide superior service to our clients.”
Rasky Partners has also announced that Graham Shalgian will expand his current role as senior vice president to oversee federal relations for the New England region. Shalgian will continue to serve as a senior lobbyist for Rasky’s federal practice, while also focusing on the needs of New England businesses and nonprofits in Washington.
Alexandra Wich has been promoted to vice president for the firm’s Washington office, where she supports both federal government relations and communications clients. Kristyn Anderson has been named associate vice president and will focus on company operations as well as coalition management for clients, while continuing to serve as chief of staff to the CEO.
