D.C. Navigators will add new partners and clients over the next week to its roster of top-flight GOP talent, said Jim Pitts, the firm’s founder.
Chris Cox, a former special assistant to the president in the White House, will become a partner in firm, and Pitts said he plans to hire another name lobbyist, although he declined to identify that person.
The Hill has learned that Dan Senor, the former spokesman for Paul Bremer, the American viceroy in Iraq in 2003 and 2004, is expected to join the firm.
While the firm already has a solid corporate and political client base, Maryland-based Emergent BioSolutions, which manufactures the only anthrax vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration, has hired the firm to represent the company on Capitol Hill.
The firm already lists Advanced Micro Devices, Bell South, Oracle, Tyco International, Visa USA and the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. as its marquee clients.
