29 Sep ROKK Solutions Welcomes Kristen Hawn As Newest Partner
Washington, D.C. – ROKK Solutions, a bipartisan public affairs firm at the nexus of policy and politics, announced today that Kristen Hawn will join founding partners Ron Bonjean and Rodell Mollineau as a partner at the firm.
Hawn, who has been working with ROKK since 2018 as a senior advisor, complements the firm’s existing leadership with experience leading communications efforts on Capitol Hill and on political campaigns, as well as in the private sector for coalitions, non-profit organizations and Fortune 500 companies.
“The team at ROKK Solutions is second to none, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work that we have done together over the past two years,” said Hawn. “I’m thrilled to be joining Ron and Rodell in leading the firm as it continues to grow and take on our client’s toughest public affairs challenges.”
Prior to her relationship with ROKK, Hawn spent much of her 20-year career working in the center-left space advising Democratic members of Congress and House candidates and has a keen understanding of the current political landscape. For over five years, she served as the communications director and a political advisor for the Blue Dog Coalition, reporting directly to over 50 moderate Members of the United States House of Representatives and serving as senior advisor and spokesperson tasked with communicating the group’s priorities to all local, national and international media.
Bonjean noted that Hawn’s background and experience is essential for the growing bipartisan agency. “ROKK was founded on the principle that the best counsel comes from bringing together diverse experiences and points of view, and Kristen has a unique perspective through her experience and many relationships on Capitol Hill that are valuable for our clients and their business goals.”
Hawn’s joining the firm follows ROKK’s strategic expansion over the past 24 months, which has resulted in double digit growth and a 360-degree integrated suite of capabilities designed to service the evolving needs of clients in the public affairs marketplace.
“Kristen has been an indispensable asset to this firm and I’m glad to not only call her my friend, but a partner as well,” said Mollineau. “She is the perfect fit to complement our leadership team as we continue to grow and diversify our offerings as a firm.”
