Qorvis Communications announced this evening that former Washington Times Editor Sam Dealey; Gregory Lagana, former senior vice-president for communications and marketing at DynCorp International; and John Reid, former Communications Director for U.S. Senator George Allen (R-VA), have been named partners of the firm. Dr. Ron Faucheux, president of the Qorvis-owned Clarus Research Group, has also been promoted to partner.
The new additions were made following the departure of nearly a third of the company’s management team. Though Qorvis didn’t comment on the shake-up, rumor has it that Don Goldberg, Michael Quint and Jason Siegel recently resigned to start a competitive practice. Their exits follow that of Maura Corbett who left the firm in November and launched the Glen Echo Group.
