Netflix has brought in tech PR pro, former journalist and DC-savvy communicator Anne Marie Squeo and deployed VP of communications Joris Evers to oversee PR for Europe, where the streaming video provider is expanding.
Squeo exits 30 Point Communications, where she was managing director over the past year in Washington, D.C., for the firm led by former George W. Bush speechwriter Noam Neusner. She took up a director of communications role with Netflix this week.
Disney alum Jonathan Friedland heads Netflix corporate communications.
Broadcasting and Cable first reported that Squeo will aid Netflix on net neutrality and work from Washington and the company's Los Gatos, Calif., headquarters. Netflix has sparred with major telecom providers over equal access to broadband.
She joined from a VP/comms. slot at Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, where she made the jump to PR and public affairs.
Squeo spent more than seven years at the Wall Street Journal and started out at Bloomberg News.
