Ari Fleischer, who was George W. Bush’s press secretary, has signed on as a consultant at BCW.

He handled daily press briefings from 2001 to 2003 and was the key spokesperson during the 9/11 terror attacks and the US invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Fleischer, who runs his own consultancy, is the author of Suppression, Deception, Snobbery and Bias, a book about “how the press keeps getting so much wrong” according to BCW’s announcement.

Corey duBrowa, BCW CEO, said Fleischer has extraordinary experience in delivering world-class strategic counsel, issues management and campaign development across the domains of politics, business and sports/entertainment.

WPP is merging BCW and Hill + Knowlton on July 1 to create Burson.
