Former Obama Administration and DNC officials Luis Miranda and Mark Paustenbach have launched Ambassador Public Affairs.
Ambassador offers strategic messaging, crisis management, media relations, coalition communications and a media training program, with a focus on advising clients on their interactions with the changing media and digital landscape.
Miranda was a communications advisor to President Obama, serving during Obama’s first term in office. While at the White House, he worked with the communications and press teams, as well as supporting the National Security Council to advance the president’s agenda throughout the hemisphere. He is also a veteran of five presidential campaigns, most recently having served as communications director for the Democratic Party during the 2016 presidential primaries and national conventions.
Paustenbach was most recently deputy communications director and national press secretary for the Democratic Party during the 2016 presidential primaries and the general election campaign. He previously served as spokesperson for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the U.S. government’s response to the financial crisis, where he oversaw press strategy related to large-scale investments in the banking, insurance and auto industries.
“Major corporations, start-ups, and political clients have a growing number of challenges,” said Miranda. “At the most critical junctures, today’s leaders need the right representation, an ambassador to the digital age.”
