ROKK Solutions Welcomes John LaBombard As Senior Vice President
Sinema Communications Director Brings Years of Bipartisan Strategic Insight to Firm
Washington, D.C. – ROKK Solutions, a bipartisan public affairs firm at the nexus of policy, politics, and communications, announced today that John LaBombard will be joining its executive leadership team as a Senior Vice President. LaBombard is an established strategist with 15 years of experience leading campaign and congressional communications efforts for U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill, Jon Tester and most recently, Kyrsten Sinema.
LaBombard has served as a senior communications advisor on every significant Congressional debate over the past decade — leading strategic communications for issues ranging from McCaskill’s work with the Pentagon reforming wartime contracting and with college campuses curbing sexual violence, to Sinema’s work on aviation, telecommunications, and health care issues.
“John is a well-respected communicator in Washington and no stranger to bipartisanship,” said ROKK Co-founding Partner Ron Bonjean. “As someone with extensive communications experience and deep relationships on the Hill, he will bring valuable policy perspective to our clients and their initiatives.”
“We are excited to welcome John to the team. John has a successful track record of communicating in challenging political environments and his extensive work with ‘red state’ Democrats brings a unique perspective that will complement our existing team and deliver added strategic value for our clients,” said ROKK Partner Kristen Hawn.
“After 15 years working with red-state Democratic senators on the front lines of federal policy and politics, I’m thrilled to join the public affairs experts at ROKK Solutions,” said LaBombard. “Rodell, Ron, and Kristen have established a truly bipartisan team of strategic communicators and accomplished political veterans with senior-level insight from both parties — and I am eager to get to work and continue their proven track record of success for ROKK’s clients.”
