Kimberly Clark

Kimberly-Clark has signed on Prime Policy Group as its first outside Washington lobbyist.

The Irving, TX-based consumer giant is celebrating its 150th anniversary and is celebrating by doubling down on its “Better Care for a Better World” purpose.

Its Huggies, Kleenex, Scott, Kotex, Cottonelle, Poise, Depend, Andrex, Pull-Ups, GoodNites, Intimus, Neve, Plenitud, Sweety and Softex brands hold the No. 1 or No. 2 market positions in the 80 countries where they are sold.

The $19.4B company uses PPG for input on environmental, climate change, plastics regulations, sanctions, tariffs and immigration issues.

PPG’s lobbying team includes international head Karen Antebi, who was chief of staff to Mexico’s Deputy Secretary of Commerce; trade lead Casie Daugherty; Andrew Terp, ex-aide to Indiana Republican Senator Todd Young; and Ann Adler, chief of staff to the late Democratic Senator Robert Byrd.
