Shelby Wagenseller, who was deputy COO of the 2020 Democratic National Convention Committee as well as senior communications advisor for the Milwaukee Host Committee, has been named vice president of Signal Group’s communications practice.
Wagenseller was previously a senior communications manager at Signal. She has also served as deputy press secretary at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and worked on the 2016 Democratic National Convention Committee. Before that, she was at Joe Trippi & Associates and served as a field organizer in President Obama’s 2012 campaign.
“Shelby is a total pro when it comes to high profile brand and policy communications in Washington or around the country,” Signal Group COO Jessica Rihani. “She was an asset to our firm and went on to play several key roles at the Democratic convention where she helped rewrite the playbook for managing large scale events during these unprecedented times.”
