News : Resolute Consulting Opens Boston Office
Communications strategist James Chisholm will lead New England operations
BOSTON - Resolute Consulting
has expanded its national footprint with the hiring of James Chisholm
to lead the firm’s new Boston office. As vice president, Chisholm will manage the firm’s New England operations.
Chisholm will serve clients throughout the region on a variety of policy issues including technology, broadband and telecommunications, providing strategic counsel and messaging to clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to startups and not-for-profit organizations.
“We are thrilled to expand into the northeast and welcome a person of James' caliber to the team,” said Greg Goldner, Resolute Consulting’s founder and CEO. “James’ knowledge and experience will further enhance our ability to serve our growing client roster.”
James most recently served as Chief of Staff to At Large Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley and directed two history-making campaigns. Councilor Pressley became the first women of color ever elected to the Boston City Council in 2009 and won a competitive reelection campaign in 2011, in the process becoming the first person of color to ever top the ticket in a citywide Council race. In both cases the campaign built coalitions that crossed traditional demographic and geographic boundaries.
Prior to his work with Pressley, James served as a speechwriter and deputy press secretary for U.S. Senator John F. Kerry, helping develop the Senator’s messaging and overall communications strategy. In this role, James authored numerous speeches, public statements, op-eds and Internet/blog posts on a wide variety of topics ranging from national security to clean technology to healthcare.
“Resolute Consulting is already growing and expanding its reach into New England and I look forward to being part of this new chapter of the Resolute story,” said James Chisholm. “Resolute has a real appreciation for the importance of the local perspective in guiding its client work. I’m thrilled to join a firm with national reach, resources and reputation that makes it a priority to build a New England team that truly understands the region and its people.”
Resolute Consulting’s new Boston office is located at 470 Atlantic Avenue.
