Hilary Rosen, former chairwoman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, is joining SKDKnickerbocker, according to a statement put out by the firm Thursday.
Rosen will be a managing director at the firm, where Anita Dunn is a principal. Dunn was part of President Obama’s inner circle during his 2008 campaign and recently served as White House communications director.
“SKDKnickerbocker is uniquely placed to grow its public affairs practice both in Washington and in New York, and it’s a bonus to work with longtime friends and colleagues,” Rosen said in the statement.
Rosen was previously in charge of the Brunswick Group’s Washington office, a public relations firm. She also was political director of the Huffington Post during the 2008 election.
