Raul Alvillar, who was New Mexico state director for the Biden/Harris 2020 campaign, is joining Resolute Public Affairs as an executive VP.
Alvillar previously served as national political director for the Democratic National Committee. He has also been the senior advisor for HUD’s public engagement office, associate director of the office of public engagement in the Obama White House and western regional political director for Obama’s 2008 campaign.
While at the White House, he also helped manage the rollout of the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy as interim LGBT liaison.
Based in New Mexico, Alvillar will be tasked with raising the agency’s profile in the southwest. He will also spend time working from Washington.
Resolute founder and CEO Greg Goldner says that Alvillar’s “deep experience in the Washington, D.C. ecosystem” and close ties with the new administration will bring the firm’s clients “a powerful perspective on navigating the future.”
Headquartered in Chicago, Resolute provides strategic counsel and issue advocacy efforts in more than 30 states.
