MWWPR hires Jennifer Holdsworth, ups their political cred in DC
Holdsworth will continue advising and fundraising for candidates in her new role.
(East Rutherford) — MWWPR, the Jersey-based powerhouse public relations firm, is beefing up their political bonafides in Washington DC by bringing NJ Political Ninja Jennifer Holdsworth on board. She’s the new Senior VP of Issues Management and Corporate Affairs at MWWPR’s DC office.
She will also serve as Senior Political Strategist.
Michael Kempner, the well-known democrat power-bundler (Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton et al) is flexing his political muscle by bringing the Jersey native on board.
Holdsworth, who hails from Bergen County, has deep contacts within the Democratic National Committee and also within the presidential campaigns of many newly announced candidates.
“I’m so excited to have the opportunity to work for Michael and at a firm with such deep NJ roots,” Holdsworth told InsiderNJ. “As I’ve traveled the country advising candidates (including presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg) my heart never left the Garden State. You’ll for sure be seeing me around more often now!”
MWWPR has corporate HQs in NYC and East Rutherford, NJ with offices in DC, London and 9 other sites throughout the US and the UK. Their venerable CEO Michael Kempner is who Barack and Michelle Obama hang out with when they’re on vacation.
“Jen’s extensive public policy and campaign experience make her an indispensable resource for the firm and our clients,” said MWWPR Founder and CEO Michael Kempner. “In an era where consumers expect companies to take stands on critical issues and brand purpose, she will serve as a client and agency leader to guide those positions, integrating her political expertise into authentic and engaging communications strategies.”
