Ogilvy Government Relations has promoted one of its lobbyists to chief executive officer as the former CEO and two of his colleagues at the firm prepare to leave, the lobby shop announced on Wednesday.
Chris Giblin has replaced Drew Maloney as Ogilvy CEO in advance of his upcoming departure to the Republican National Committee, where he will serve as the external affairs adviser. And Ogilvy senior vice president John O'Neill will join Capitol Counsel, while firm senior vice president Elena Tompkins will establish her own firm, Ogilvy President Gordon Taylor said.
"This is an exciting day for Ogilvy Government Relations as we look forward to growing our firm under new leadership," Taylor said in a statement.
"It's sad to [be] leaving good friends at Ogilvy Government Relations, but I am really excited about joining one of the premier tax legislative teams in DC at a unique time in the tax policy world," O'Neill wrote in an e-mail.
