SAN FRANCISCO: Erika Gudmundson, a senior communications aide on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, has joined Pramana Collective as principal.
A big Pramana welcome to @erikagudmundson - a formidable new addition to our team in San Francisco.— Pramana Collective (@pramana) November 13, 2017
Erika was most recently running comms at Zumper after serving in a senior communications role on the Clinton campaign.
Gudmundson is working with healthcare and financial clients and reporting to cofounder Brian O’Shaughnessy.
"It’s a competitive market in San Francisco, and we hire top talent there that can go to the Ubers and Slacks," said agency cofounder Sean Garrett.
Gudmundson was most recently director of communications at Zumper, an apartment rental website that has been valued at more than $100 million, according to TechCrunch. Previously, she was press secretary for Chelsea Clinton on the Hillary for America campaign. Gudmundson’s predecessor in that role, Kamyl Bazbaz, also joined Pramana in late 2015, taking a role in its New York office.
This year, Pramana has hired Mashable’s Paul Cafiero as principal in its New York office, Yahoo’s Ana Braskamp as principal in San Francisco, and Obama administration veteran Abdullah Hasan as an associate.
