Marisol Garibay, a 20-year communications veteran, has joined Invariant to advise its financial services clients on public affairs and media relations matters.
She joins the DC shop from the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions, where she was VP-communications & media relations. Garibay led NAFCU’s push to deliver its policy priorities via simple, effective and compelling messaging.
Before NAFCU, Garibay was chief communications officer for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where she built out a 15-member team, managed messaging and crisis response, and oversaw internal PR to address a range of diversity, equity and inclusion issues.
Earlier, she was communications director at the Office of Management and Budget, deputy assistant of PA at the Treasury Dept., and communications director at the House Committee on Financial Services.
Invariant founder/CEO Heather Podesta said Garibay’s “subject matter expertise, government agency & media relationships and deep understanding of constituencies—especially consumers—will benefit clients.”
