24 Mar 720 Strategies Names POLITICO Reporter Ginger Gibson to Top Media & Communications Post
720 Strategies has hired Ginger Gibson as Vice President of Media Relations and Communications. The former POLITICO congressional reporter will strengthen 720’s media relations bench and bolster strategic messaging and content for the firm and its Fortune 500 and trade association clients. Her deep knowledge of the Washington legislative and media landscape combined with her policy expertise will broaden 720’s and its clients reach in Washington and markets nationwide.
“Ginger is a significant addition to 720 Strategies, and we are thrilled to have her on our team. Her policy and political knowledge, media relationships and experience position us among the strongest media relations teams in Washington, DC,” said Pam Fielding, President and Founder of 720 Strategies.
“I am looking forward to joining the great team at 720,” Gibson said. “The interesting and creative work being done by 720 makes me excited about the road ahead.”
Gibson spent years working on the frontlines of covering the biggest political news. She covered the 2012 presidential campaign for POLITICO, traveling with Newt Gingrich during the Republican primary and Mitt Romney during the general election. The trail took her from southern California to Vermont, visiting 40 states over the course of a year and detailing the nitty-gritty details of a presidential campaign. After surviving the campaign trail, Gibson worked as a congressional reporter at POLITICO, covering the fiscal cliff at the end of 2012 and the government shutdown of October 2013.
Prior to joining POLITICO, Gibson covered New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for The Star-Ledger in Newark, NJ. Gibson also worked at The News Journal in Wilmington, Del., covering the legislature, governor’s office and state politics.
