Ed Wyatt, a 20-year reporter for the New York Times, has joined DC-based Precision Strategies as director of communications.
Most recently, Wyatt was communications director at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and senior VP at Sphere Consulting.
At the NYT from 1995 to 2015, Wyatt worked in New York, Washington and Los Angeles covering news from the worlds of business, finance, technology, politics, regulatory agencies, book publishing and Hollywood.
Wyatt’s “decades of experience as a reporter and strategist will elevate Precision’s ability to distill complex stories into impactful campaigns and narratives for our clients," said Precision co-founder Stephanie Cutter, who was deputy campaign manager for president Obama’s 2012 re-election bid and chief of staff for First Lady Michelle Obama.
Jen O’Malley Dillon, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign manager and designated White House deputy chief of staff, and Teddy Goff, digital director for Obama 2012, are Precision’s other co-founders.
