Eric Bovim, Signal’s managing director, called Elshami a “true PA pro” equipped with “intricate knowledge of the legislative process and how to use the media to influence that process in today’s Washington.”

Elshami, who was communications director for then-Speaker Pelosi, is in charge of the San Francisco Democrat’s public outreach, policy, communications and member relations.

Prior to joining Pelosi in 2007, Elshami was senior communications advisor/spokesperson for Assistant Democratic Leader Dick Durbin, communications director for Rep. Jan Schakowsky and deputy and communications director to California Senator Barbara Boxer.
