Former Rendell executive and strategic communications consultant Kirstin Snow today joined the Triad Strategies team.
Kirstin brings to Triad a solid marketing communications, media relations and government background with specific emphasis on healthcare, infrastructure, policy, grassroots outreach and crisis planning.
“We are thrilled that Kirstin is joining our team in Harrisburg,” Triad Strategies President Roy Wells said. “She brings invaluable experience to our clientele, and we look forward to harnessing her many talents.”
Kirstin was the bureau director for Commonwealth Media Services for seven years under the administration of Governor Edward Rendell. Following the end of his second term, Kirstin served as his chief of staff and chair of his two political action committees. She’s been a consultant with America Votes on a statewide “Get Out The Vote” initiative, and most recently served as the Director of Communications for the Department of Aging under Governor Tom Wolf.
“My administration worked closely with Triad Strategies on the passage of several major pieces of legislation, and its ability to reach across the aisle to make bipartisan compromises for its clients is a rare skill in Harrisburg,” Former Governor Ed Rendell said. “Kirstin will be a great complement to that kind of team. In her tenure with my administration, she built strong relationships with members of both parties.”
In addition to her professional career, Kirstin has had a successful tenure in academia. She has taught for 16 years in several universities across the state, including St. Joseph’s, Messiah College, Shippensburg, Duquesne, and Lebanon Valley among others.
