ROKK Solutions forms strategic partnership with Impact ROI, under which Impact CEO Steve Rochlin will serve as a senior advisor for ROKK’s recently launched social impact communications practice, led by agency managing director Lindsay Singleton. The practice is focused on helping clients build bipartisan long-term relationships with key influencers on Capitol Hill and across the country around topics of mutual interest. “Companies are engaging in meaningful CR (corporate responsibility) efforts at unprecedented levels, but few organizations are communicating those efforts to legislators and change-makers in Washington,” said Rochlin. “ROKK Solutions’ bipartisan perspective and insider knowledge of the D.C. landscape makes them uniquely suited to fill that role and maximize return on investment for their clients.”
