Does your radio or TV station have a big news presence in the Nation’s Capital?
Then, you better print a copy of this story and discuss how your D.C. crew can get to know the four senior members of President-Elect Donald Trump’s communications team.
Trump on Thursday (12/22) finalized the team by naming longtime Republican National Committee communications chief Sean Spicer as Asst. to the President and Press Secretary.
Spicer has served as Communications Director and Chief Strategist at the RNC since Feb. 2011. From 2006-2009, he was the Asst. U.S. Trade Representative for Media, serving as the Obama administration’s chief communicator on trade issues and as senior advisor to members of President Obama’s cabinet.
Serving as the Assistant to the President and Director of Strategic Communications is Hope Hicks. She is the former press secretary for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and is the current spokeswoman for Trump’s presidential transition team.
As an employee of PR firm Hiltzik Strategies, Hicks began working with Ivanka Trump on her fashion line in 2012, and then on other Trump ventures. She is the daughter of Paul Burton Hicks III, a former EVP/Communications for the National Football League.
Serving as Assistant to the President and Director of Communications is Jason Miller. Miller was a top communications advisor to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign prior to joining the Trump campaign. He also served on former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s presidential campaign, in 2008.
Lastly, former Coca-Cola District Sales Manager, Galderma pharmaceutical sales representative and EVP/GM of The Trump Organization Dan Scavino will remain a close confident of the president-elect, serving as Assistant to the President and Director of Social Media.
“Sean, Hope, Jason and Dan have been key members of my team during the campaign and transition,” Trump said. “I am excited they will be leading the team that will communicate my agenda that will Make America Great Again.”
