Jerome Murray Joins OGR as Newest Principal

Washington, DC– Jerome Murray, a skilled veteran of Washington policy and political battles for over 20 years, has joined top bipartisan firm, Ogilvy Government Relations.

A former chief of staff to Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-USVI) and legislative director for Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), Murray brings to Ogilvy not only years of Capitol Hill expertise, but also private sector experience representing a client base including global brands and organizations focused on health and innovation, transportation and logistics, energy, food service, higher education and collegiate athletics.

Ogilvy Principal Moses Mercado said, “We are thrilled that Jerome is joining our team; his experience on Capitol Hill and in the private sector will transfer well to the diverse range of clients our firm represents.” Mercado added, “Jerome’s corporate background with the National Basketball Association and with Merck, coupled with his multi-client experience, will ensure an immediate impact with our clients.”

Murray has an impressive combination of relationships and hands-on experience in Washington. His extensive experience working with various members and staff of the Congressional Black Caucus, the New Democrat Coalition and other Democratic groups will further expand Ogilvy’s footprint.

“As Washington braces for another two years of divided government and major challenges on the horizon, Jerome is a superb and timely addition for our bipartisan team approach,” said Ogilvy Principal Chris Giblin.

Murray also brings to Ogilvy strong member and staff relationships on key Congressional committees such as Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Oversight and Reform.

“I have long been an admirer of Ogilvy’s culture and I am excited to join such a distinguished group of strategists and advocates,” said Murray. “With so much happening right now at the intersection of politics, social awareness, business and government, the timing could not be better to join one of Washington’s premier bipartisan lobbying firms.  I am eager to get started representing our clients’ interests in Washington.”
