HARRISBURG – Triad Strategies is pleased to announce that Brandi Hunter-Davenport is the latest public affairs associate to join the firm.
With nearly 20 years of experience of under her belt, Brandi is excited to bring her talents to the bi-partisan public relations firm.
“From the moment I entered Triad’s doors, I felt a collaborative energy and spirit among the already established team,” said Hunter-Davenport. “I knew that was a dynamic I connected with. Triad knows the power in bringing diverse individuals together to work toward common interests. I’m honored to join the team and look forward to working together on behalf of Triad’s clients.”
Prior to joining Triad, Brandi oversaw PA Forward, an outreach and training initiative, for the Pennsylvania Library Association. In that role, she provided training and facilitation, media, marketing and public relations guidance along with strategic planning skills to the association’s membership.
Additionally, she cultivated a series of partnership opportunities for the organization, leveraging educational resources, materials and support for libraries. In this role, she also oversaw the association’s Star Library Program, an achievement-based program that recognized libraries for their application of literacy-aligned programming for patrons throughout Pennsylvania. The program has grown to more than 200 actively participating libraries.
“Brandi brings the right combination of association management and communications experience with her,” said Roy Wells, Triad president and managing partnering. “Her extensive understanding in state government communications, nonprofit associations, and higher education will lend itself well to Triad’s clients. We are excited to have her on the team.”
Brandi has previously served as the director of communications for the state Department of Agriculture, working on communication platforms that focused on areas such as the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay, the potential of the High Path Avian influenza virus and racing reform.
She was also the director of public affairs and education with the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts and handled press, marketing and communications with the state departments of Environmental Protection and Health and was as a member of Governor Rendell's press and communications team. Before that, she was program manager for the American Lung Association, servicing a 15-county area in the south-central region of Pennsylvania.
“I first met Brandi several years ago and watched how she expertly navigated the state government and nonprofit arenas,” said Doug Rohanna, Triad’s vice-president of public affairs. “As Triad continues growing and expanding our client offerings, we knew Brandi would be the right addition to the team. Together, we will work together to put Triad’s clients first.”
Brandi is a graduate of Bennett College as well as Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, earning an undergraduate degree in mass communications and a Master of Science in journalism, respectively. She is an adjunct professor in the Communications Department at Messiah College and resides in Harrisburg with her family.
