OGR Adds Todd Novascone as a Principal

Ogilvy Government Relations today announced that Todd Novascone, a veteran republican operative and chief of staff to former NRSC Chair Jerry Moran (R-KS), has joined the firm as a principal. With a proven track record of legislative and political success, Novascone adds additional Republican firepower to the bipartisan team at Ogilvy.

“As my Chief of Staff for the last 12 years, Todd devoted himself to serving Kansans in the nation’s capital. He is not only a great strategic advisor, but also a good friend. Todd’s leadership motivated our staff to do their best and make certain objectives were not only achieved, but were done with integrity.”

Novascone served as a State Representative in the Kansas Legislature from 2000-2005 and came to Washington in 2005 to serve as then-Congressman Moran’s chief of staff. He went on to run Moran’s successful 2010 Senate race and served as his Senate chief of staff until joining Ogilvy.

“Todd’s service in the Kansas statehouse, U.S. Congress and U.S. Senate is a powerful trifecta of political experience that will be a huge asset to our clients,” said Ogilvy Principal Gordon Taylor. “He has battle-tested political smarts and deep relationships with Republicans in the legislative and executive branches.”

Novascone will build out Ogilvy’s appropriations practice and use his vast experience in commerce and transportation issues to serve the firm’s growing roster of clients. “Todd’s going to have an immediate impact on our ability to serve clients in key issues this Congress, including the expected infrastructure package and Farm bill,” said Ogilvy Principal Chris Giblin. “He is extremely well liked and respected in the Senate for his strategic thinking and policy chops.”
