Heimbach, a senior aide at the FCC and Obama White House, was senior director of the ONE Campaign and chief of staff to Senate Banking Committee Ranking Member Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

He started out on the campaign staff of Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and worked in the private sector at Richetti & Associates. He also worked in the Clinton White House.

At the World Bank, he was special representative to North America, Australia, New Zealand and Israel for external and corporate relations.

PMJ is aligned with Tiber Creek Group, the lobbying shop of Clinton confidante and super PAC leader Harold Ickes. In a statement, Ickes called Heimbach "the next generation of substance and political savvy here in Washington."

The firm said Heimbach will tackle financial services, technology, telecommunications and energy clients.
