Anita Dunn, a founding member of SKDKnickerbocker who returned to the firm after serving as a senior advisor to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris during the campaign, is rejoining Team Biden to work on the transition.
She is taking a leave of absence from the New York firm, which is part of Stagwell Group and plans to return to it during the summer.
At the White House, Dunn will work closely with press secretary Jen Psaki and communications director Kate Bedingfield.
During the campaign, Dunn advised Biden/Harris on messaging, debate preparation and communications strategy.
She was a chief strategist in Barack Obama’s White House.
