Former Qorvis CEO Michael Petruzzello has registered as a $60K a month consultant for the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

His work is in collaboration with Qorvis, which picked up the Saudi Arabia business in the aftermath of 9/11.

Matt Lauer succeeded Petruzzello at the helm of Qorvis with the completion of the management-led buyout of the firm on Dec. 31, 2022.

He joined Qorvis in 2004 after serving as executive director of the US Advisory Committee on Public Diplomacy under Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Princess Reema Bint Bandar Bin Sultan is Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US.

Appointed in 2019, she is the first woman to serve as an ambassador for the Kingdom.

Her father, Prince Bander, was the Saudi ambassador to the US from 1983 to 2005.
