BerlinRosen Wins the Blake Zeff Primary

Blake Zeff, who worked under Howard Wolfson on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and, before that, at the New York State Democratic Party, has been hired by the consulting firm BerlinRosen.

The hiring was announced in an email to clients that was also forwarded to a few reporters.

Zeff is a talented guy and since the end of the presidential campaign, I – and many others – have been quietly wondering where he would land.

BerlinRosen’s clients include the Working Families Party, which endorsed Bill de Blasio for public advocate, Richard Aborn for Manhattan D.A., Julissa Ferreras, Jimmy van Brammer and Brad Lander, who are running for City Council.

Here’s the announcement:

Hi there-

Wanted to take a minute to let you know about the newest member of the BerlinRosen team.

Blake Zeff joins BerlinRosen Public Affairs as a senior member of our strategic communications practice having just come off two years on the presidential campaign trail – first as a national spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and later as the New York Communication’s Director for the Obama campaign. Prior to the 2008 election cycle Blake served as Communications Director to U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer and the New York State Democratic Party.

Blake brings to BerlinRosen a deep understanding of what makes and shapes the news and a tremendous background managing the intersection of politics, government and the news media at the local, state and national level.

He’s also an all around good guy.
