In some news that hits close to home — and by home, we mean the mediabistro.com family — FishbowlDC co-editor Matt Dornic has joined D.C.-based agency Quinn Gillespie & Associates as Director.
QGA will absorb Dornic’s company 3 Dog Agency. All employees will be making the move, along with 3 Dog clients that fit with QGA’s caliber of clients and billing structure.
Dornic told PRNewser today that agency namesake Jack Quinn is a personal friend and mentor and that he was ready “to not be the owner of an agency anymore.”
“I was sick of being bogged down with things like IT and HR, so this is perfect opportunity for me to grow what I loved about 3 Dog at Quinn Gillespie & Associates,” he said.
After Gillespie’s departure, QGA became more government relations focused, and the deal with Dornic and 3 Dog Agency is part of a push to ramp up the agency’s strategic communications expertise.
Dornic will continue to co-edit FishbowlDC. Full release after the jump.
