Well-connected D.C. firm Quinn Gillespie & Associates (QGA) has hired Christopher S. Brown as Director of Digital Strategy.

Prior to QGA, Brown was managing editor for new media at Fox’s America’s Most Wanted. He left AMW in January 2009 to start his own consultancy.

“I had every intention of starting a real niche practice,” Brown told PRNewser in phone interview today. “I was very successful at that, but when I had the opportunity to come to a shop that has Republicans, Democrats and communicators under one roof…to take my practice and move it to QGA, it was a no brainer.”

Brown said he will not bring any clients to QGA as part of the move.

“Chris Brown brings to QGA a robust knowledge and insight of the new media outlets, networks and tools that now inform and influence the public, ultimately shaping public policy,” said QGA Chairman Jack Quinn in a statement.
