We are pleased to announce that Kevin Chaffee, veteran journalist and nationally-respected expert on Washington’s political and social power structure, has joined Qorvis Communications as a senior adviser. Chaffee will apply his unique skills and significant connections to help clients navigate the complex and interacting levels of Washington. He will also advise in the development of communications and events strategies.
In bringing Chaffee to Qorvis Communications, Michael Petruzzello, the firm’s founder and managing partner, said: “A significant part of what Qorvis Communications does is help our clients navigate Washington. Kevin will add a new dimension to that service, bringing tremendous knowledge and experience with the media and the Washington social/political community.”
Chaffee’s extensive journalistic background includes 17 years as an editor and writer at The Washington Times, where he wrote more than 2,000 articles on the social and arts scenes in the nation’s capital, and three years as senior editor of Washington Life Magazine, where he will remain on the masthead as an editorial consultant.
“I’m thrilled to join Qorvis Communications,” Chaffee said. “Qorvis Communications has a reputation in Washington for its dynamic leadership and impressive list of clients. I look forward to employing the experience and knowledge I gained over the years to Qorvis’ client roster.”
In discussing the new hire, Michael also pointed out that as Qorvis Communications heads into its eleventh year, there has been a significant pattern of growth in bringing aboard new accounts and experienced team members like Chaffee. In addition to adding four new partners earlier this year, we’ve hired more than a dozen new staffers to service clients and keep up with the expanding realms of digital, branding, public affairs, media relations, and online reputation management.
There are many more positions available. If you’re interested in joining our rapidly growing firm, please contact Jessica Bayer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
