T.J. and Jennifer Trujillo combine their renowned government affairs practice with Strategies 360, building a powerful suite of services for New Mexico.
Santa Fe, NM – Strategies 360 welcomes T.J. and Jennifer Trujillo as the newest team members in the firm’s New Mexico office. The Trujillos are combining their top government affairs practice, The Emissary Group, with S360’s full-service model to build a powerful suite of integrated practices for clients doing business in New Mexico and beyond.
“New Mexico public affairs are rapidly changing. Forward-thinking clients increasingly demand a broader range of services to address new and anticipated challenges,” said Josh Rosen, Senior Vice President of Strategies 360 New Mexico. “Combining The Emissary Group’s highly respected government relations expertise with S360’s integrated service model will immediately help companies doing business in New Mexico to comprehensively address those changes more successfully.”
T.J. and Jennifer bring a wealth of knowledge collaborating to achieve complex goals on behalf of their clients. The pair founded The Emissary Group, where they provided extensive communications services to enhance comprehensive lobbying on behalf of their clients. They built The Emissary Group into the largest premier and full-service government relations firm in the state of New Mexico.
With over 20 years’ experience practicing law, T.J. brings a unique twist to his government affairs practice. His expertise in environmental and administrative law has been the driving force behind his nearly two-decade lobbying practice. With his legal background, T.J. is well versed in lobbying compliance and drafting legislation. Developing advocacy strategies for clients on both legislative and regulatory matters is his specialty, along with a results-driven approach to government affairs.
Jennifer went from a corporate culture and a background in public relations to freelance writing. She ran the business operations for T.J.’s first government relations practice before they decided to establish The Emissary Group together.
T.J. and Jennifer work across party lines to deliver non-partisan wins to advance the public good. Their clients hail from various industries from agriculture, natural resources, and renewable energy to cannabis, higher education, and broadband.
“T.J. and Jennifer are a dream team,” said Ron Dotzauer, Founder and CEO of Strategies 360. “They have grown an incredible practice using the same values that drive S360 everyday: Collaboration, creativity, and the innovative spirit to find win-win solutions for their clients.”
The Emissary Group clients will continue to enjoy the services T.J. and Jennifer have always provided, while accessing the extended in-house creative, communications, research and campaign practice areas that S360 offers. This combination also means there will be greater opportunity for multi-state clients to expand seamlessly into the larger footprint of S360.
“We both are very excited at the potential growth to our practice by joining S360,” said Jennifer, Vice President, S360 New Mexico “The services provided through S360 will enable us to better support our clients, reach more potential clients, and offer more than any other firm in the state.”
