Cornerstone has recruited Hyma Moore, chief of staff to Democratic National Committee chair Jamie Harrison, for its public affairs practice.
Moore served as Harrison’s point of contact to Members of Congress and federal agencies and liaison to elected officials and outside stakeholders.
Earlier, he was the DNC’s battleground states press secretary, where he managed communications staff in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina and Florida and amplified messaging by the Biden administration.
Prior to the DNC, Moore was VP for external affairs at Greater New Orleans, and communications advisor to the city’s former mayor Mitch Landrieu.
Cornerstone president Campbell Kaufman said Moore’s campaign and private sector experience will be invaluable to clients, and his national network will help the firm expand across the country.
DC-based Cornerstone has 150 staffers in 15 offices throughout the US.
