Billing itself as a full-service government and public affairs consultancy, NorthStar Strategies, LLC launched today with a former Atlantic County assemblyman in its professional stable.

“What sets NorthStar apart is the diversified suite of services we offer our clients,” said NorthStar founder and Chief Executive Officer Joe Fiordaliso.  “We are so grateful for the support we have received from friends, family and clients as we launch NorthStar Strategies.”

Before founding NorthStar, Fiordaliso was an equity partner with MBI-GluckShaw, one of New Jersey’s most established and prominent consulting firms.  He served as Chief of Staff to the New Jersey Department of Transportation under Governors Dick Codey and Jon Corzine and began his career in Washington, DC as a Legislative Assistant to US Senator Bob Torricelli.
“Joe and I have teamed on a number of projects in the past, making the NorthStar collaboration a natural fit,” said Chief Operating Officer Jody Herkloz.  “I’m excited to employ the same team approach to service NorthStar’s clients.”

“I’m pleased to join Jody and Joe to help make NorthStar a success,” said former Assemblyman John Amodeo, who served from 2008 to 2014. “I admire their character, work ethic and commitment to client service.”

According to a firm press release, “NorthStar opens its doors with an impressive roster of clients and provides legislative lobbying,  government & regulatory affairs, public affairs, association management, events management, fundraising and public outreach services.”
