Justin Goodman, communications director for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, has joined SKDK as an EVP in its DC public affairs practice.
He will handle corporate, PA and crisis communications clients.
Having served Schumer and the Democratic Senate caucus for about a decade, Goodman operated “in the most intense, high stakes public policy and political debates of the day,” according to Jill Zuckman, SKDK partner.
Most recently, he promoted landmark bills such as the Inflation Reduction Act, CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan.
Zuckman said Goodman’s “deep bench of press relationships will be invaluable to the clients and causes we work for."
Before working for Schumer, Goodman handled press for the New York City Council and the Clinton Global Initiative.
He is the fourth Schumer alum to join SKDK. Goodman follows Josh Isay (CEO), Mike Morey (Partner), and Jason Kaplan (SVP) to SKDK, which is owned by Stagwell.
