Two WH Staffers Make Moves

Jennifer Psaki, the White House’s deputy communications director, will be leaving the Obama administration on Thursday to start a new job at Global Strategy Group, a public affairs and research firm. She’ll be SVP and MD with the firm, leading its Washington office. She was deputy press secretary for Obama’s campaign starting in 2007.

Also in political people moves, former press secretary to President George W. Bush, Ari Fleischer, is joining CNN as a contributor to the cable news channel’s roster of programming and special political programming. The addition is another of the channel’s preparations for the 2012 election.

After serving as the primary WH spokesperson between 2001 and 2003 and a Bush/Cheney spokesperson before that, he launched Ari Fleischer Sports Communications.
