Tony Sayegh, who was spokesperson for Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, has taken a managing director spot at Teneo.
As assistant secretary of the Treasury, he coordinated the communications push behind the Trump administration’s tax cut and other economic initiatives.
Sayeh also was involved in trade negotiations with China, traveling to Beijing four times with the US delegation.
Before joining Mnuchin, Sayegh was executive VP at Jamestown Assocs, a political consulting and advertising shop that placed ads for the Trump election campaign. He also was a Fox News contributor.
Teneo, which bills itself as a global CEO advisory, was founded by Doug Band, who was President Clinton’s chief counsel, and Declan Kelly, ex-Financial Dynamics CEO and economic envoy for Northern Ireland for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
