WASHINGTON: Fresh off his success as former Bush re-election campaign spokesman and RNC senior advisor, Terry Holt has joined public affairs firm Quinn Gillespie & Associates (QGA).
Bipartisan shop QGA, formed in 2000 and acquired by WPP in 2003, provides strategy, government relations, and communications services to corporations, coalitions, and trade associations.
He joins founders Jack Quinn, White House counsel to President Bill Clinton, and Ed Gillespie, Republican National Committee Chairman from June 2003 through January 2005. Holt will focus on media relations, but will also provide counsel on government relations and lobbying support to the firm's clients.
"Terry's expertise in politics, media, and communications is a perfect fit and will be a tremendous asset to QGA clients," said QGA Co-Chairman Jack Quinn in a release.
Prior to his post on the Bush 2004 campaign, Holt served as communication director for multiple politicians and organizations, including House Majority Leader Dick Armey, the House Republican Conference, and House Committee on the Budget. Holt also served as Bush election campaign spokesman in 2000.
