Golin Appoints Edelman, Clinton Vet to Manage D.C.-Area Offices

golin logo

Golin hired Neal Flieger, veteran of Edelman and various high-profile political campaigns, to manage its three Washington, D.C. area offices: Richmond, Baltimore and our nation’s capital.

Flieger spent a rare, unbroken 20-year stint at Edelman before making the move; one of his key roles at the firm involved leading its research firm StrategyOne while serving as Chair of Edelman Berland.

The list of clients for which he directed corporate reputation work, investor relations, anti-trust efforts(!) and more is as long as varied as you’d expect: it includes Samsung, Starbucks, Monsanto, Walmart, Pepsi, Yum Brands and many more.

Before he entered the agency world, however, Flieger was best known for helping to run the successive presidential campaigns of Paul Tsongas, Michael Dukakis and Bill Clinton. During the Clinton administration, he ran communications for the House Select Committee on Hunger and served as deputy administrator of the USDA’s Food and Consumer Service agency.

Flieger will report to Gary Rudnick, president of Golin Americas.
