Strategies 360 is pleased to announce that Jake Weigler has joined our Portland office as the new state communications director.
A veteran communications strategist with political and policy experience, Jake ran the 2010 reelection campaign of Senator Ron Wyden, securing a strong victory in a tough political climate. He also has substantial government experience, providing communications expertise and counsel to former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski and Attorney General Hardy Myers, as well as Superintendent of Public Instruction Susan Castillo.
“Our Oregon clients will see the direct benefits of a sharp communicator with a keen understanding of local and national media,” said Ron Dotzauer, CEO and co-founder of S360. “With our Oregon practice growing, we are excited to expand our services and offerings.”
Jake also previously worked in Washington, D.C., for the Democratic National Committee and Media Matters for America. Throughout his career, Jake has shown an exceptional ability to craft effective messages and frame public policy debates.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jake to Strategies 360,” said Margi Hoffmann, Senior Vice President and Director for Oregon Operations. “He brings with him a proven track record of in-state success and his expertise will complement the strong team we have in Oregon.”
Jake becomes the fifth member of the Oregon office, which continues its growth since launching in late 2009. Strategies 360 Oregon now provides government relations, communications, marketing, creative and business strategy services to clients including corporations, trade industries, non-profits and municipalities.
