Roy Occhiogrosso’s rejoining Global Strategy Group on January 14 as managing director of the Hartford, Conn. office.
He spent seven years with the public affairs firm before leaving in 2010 to serve as senior adviser to Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.). A consultant on Malloy’s 2010 campaign, Occhiogrosso headed up the governor’s communications operations the last two years—also acting as a speechwriter.
Prior to working at GSG, he was a communications and political strategist for campaigns from the local to national levels. Now Occhiogrosso will team up with Tanya Meck, GSG’s SVP and managing director for communications, on public affairs and strategic communications.
“Roy’s work in Connecticut and his deep experience in the Northeast region will be a huge asset to our office,” Meck said, in a statement. “I’m really looking forward to working with him on behalf of our current and future clients.”
