Jai Chabria to Lead Columbus Office


Columbus, Ohio – MAD Global Strategy Founder and CEO Mike DuHaime is proud to announce that MAD Global is expanding to Ohio.


Jai Chabria will head the Columbus office. Chabria currently serves as JD Vance’s Chief Strategist in his bid for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate Seat and was previously Senior Advisor to Ohio Governor John Kasich.


Chabria has worked in Ohio politics for over 25 years and has clients all across the United States, ranging from Fortune 500 companies, to trade associations, to non-profits.


Taylor Van Kirk will also join the new public affairs firm. Van Kirk currently serves as the JD Vance for Senate campaign’s Communications Director, and previously served as Press Secretary for the Ohio Speaker of the House and the Majority Caucus.


“Jai Chabria has been a friend and colleague for more than a decade. There’s no one better in the business. His leadership puts our firm on the map in Ohio,” said DuHaime, founder and CEO of MAD Global. “Taylor Van Kirk is a communications professional with deep government affairs roots in Columbus, which will be an immediate benefit to our growing firm.”


“When I had the opportunity to join my former colleague Mike DuHaime, one of the best problem solvers I’ve ever met, I jumped at the chance,” Jai Chabria said.  “It’s exciting to help MAD Global become a world-class strategy firm.”


Chabria and Van Kirk each previously worked at Mercury.


Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former U.S. Senator Jeff Chiesa and former New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino joined last week as members of MAD Global’s advisory board. Democrat strategist Laura Matos joined MAD Global as a partner last month.
