2020: New Hires and Promotions

As we embark on a new year, we are adding talented new team members and have made key promotions that will allow us to exceed the expectations of our ever-growing portfolio of clients.

 

Hires

Jessica Broker – Jessica joins the Parkside Group where she will advise companies seeking to ensure that their interests are effectively represented at the State Capitol. She honed these skills working for prominent Albany lobbying firms as well as positions with the Assembly Housing Committee and Attorney General Cuomo’s office. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the City University of New York John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Katy Dunn – Katy Dunn uses her research, organizing, and policy expertise on behalf of labor unions, non-profit organizations, and other clients to ensure that their concerns are heard in the Capitol. Prior to joining our government relations team, Katy served as an aide to Congressman Paul Tonko and assisted with Military and Veteran’s casework in the New York City office of US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Cat Lamond – Cat joins the Parkside Group’s government relations team where she works with non-profit organizations serving vulnerable New Yorkers. Cat was an advocate taking on food insecurity in New England before working in the tech industry to help companies effectively communicate. She is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Mount Holyoke College.

 

Promotions

Spencer Lee – Spencer has been promoted to Managing Director. While continuing to oversee major campaigns on behalf of clients, Spencer will also manage our political, public affairs and creative services teams.

Jake Herring – Jake has been promoted to Managing Director. He will continue to advise corporate and labor clients at both City Hall and the State Capitol while overseeing both our Albany and New York City-based government relations teams.

“We are delighted to welcome Jessica, Katy and Cat to the Parkside Group family, and a very well-deserved congratulations to Spencer and Jake.” said Parkside Group President Harry Giannoulis. “All of our new hires come to the company with critical experience at the nexus of government and advocacy, and we are proud that they will offer this expertise to our clients.

We are also thrilled that Spencer and Jake will take on additional leadership responsibilities within the company. They have both contributed extensively to the firm’s success since joining our team.”
