Raj Shah leaves White House to helm communications firm with Clinton administration alum
Raj Shah, who served as deputy press secretary for much of the Trump administration, has left the White House and joined a prominent communications and lobbying firm. Shah and Jamie Rubin, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs in former President Bill Clinton's administration, are together leading Ballard Media Group. It's a division of the government relations firm Ballard Partners, founded by longtime Florida lobbyist Brian Ballard.
"I'm excited to join Brian, Jamie and the top-notch team to launch Ballard Media Group," Shah said in a statement. "Companies, organizations and industries today face increasing scrutiny from an unrelenting media landscape. Our team, with years of proven results, will provide the strategic communications clients need to navigate these challenges and successfully deliver their message to the right audience." Shah joined the White House as principal deputy press secretary after serving as deputy communications director for the Republican National Committee. During his tenure at the White House, Shah briefed the press in the absence of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and helped to oversee strategy and communications for the successful confirmation last year of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh in October after a contentious confirmation fight.
Ballard Partners said Shah will join the firm as a partner.
