"After leaving the White House I gave a lot of thought to what I wanted to do next," wrote Gillespie in an e-mail to PRWeek. "One of the first things I decided was that going back to lobbying didn't feel right. My first love has always been strategic planning, mapping out how to get from point A to point B. And message development, delivery and communications strategy have always come naturally to me."
Gillespie said in the e-mail that the firm does have clients, but declined to name them.
Gillespie had previously cofounded Quinn Gillespie and Associates as a bipartisan public affairs firm, and prior to that, he was president of Policy Impact Communications.
