Saudi Arabia has signed Off Hill Strategies to a $25K per-month pact for Congressional outreach and to improve bilateral relations between the Kingdom and the US.
Headed by the husband-and-wife team of Tripp and Jennifer Baird, Oak Hill says it stands for clients with conservative principles dedicated to championing limited government and protecting constitutional rights.
Prior to setting up Off Hill in 2014, Tripp launched the political arm of The Heritage Foundation, where he served as director of government relations and senior legislative strategist. He also was a partner at Watts Consulting, leading corporate strategy and PA for clients in the finance, energy and technology sectors, and an aide to former Florida Republican Senator Mel Martinez.
Jennifer, who is of counsel to Oak Hill, worked at McGuiness and Holch lobbying firm, served on the staff of Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah and Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack of California and handled outreach at the Christian Legal Society.
Off Hill’s contact became effective Oct. 19 and runs through Jan. 18, 2021. The pact may be ended if the firm engages in conduct that may negatively affect its public image and, by association, the public image of the Saudi Embassy.
The Bairds report to Musab Alsaud, chief of staff at the Embassy, and Abdullah Aleissa, director of engagement.
