BRITTANY M. HOLDER
Member & Chief Communications Officer
Brittany has a decade of communications, public relations, advocacy, and stakeholder engagement experience in the federal policy and higher education sectors. Since graduating from Old Dominion University, she has served as a communications executive at three large national organizations including performing as Press Secretary advocating on regulatory, policy, and programmatic issues of national concern to the public, media, congress, the Executive Branch, and the White House.
Brittany has active relationships with journalists across the globe and is a recognized expert at strategic content placement in television, print media, and digital platforms. Her public relations talents include prepping senior officials for interviews on syndicated television, such as Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live, BBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and more. As a chief spokesperson for several large national organizations, she continues to offer exclusives to trusted colleagues at diverse national and international publications including The Washington Post, Newsweek, NBC News, Politico, Buzzfeed, Bloomberg Law, Federal News Network, Government Executive Magazine, Libération, and more.
Brittany is an experienced promoter of organizations and ideas that augment regulatory and legislative environments. Of note is a series of rallies that Brittany developed that drew thousands to the nation’s capital to oppose the 2018-2019 federal government shutdown, while also coordinating smaller events in cities across the country. These rallies earned heavy national and international media coverage that directly pressured Capitol Hill leaders to end the shutdown. Brittany creates innovative awareness and action campaigns, often on politically sensitive issues, including a successful campaign to save 1,000 federal jobs that disproportionately affected minority communities across the country, and a movement that resulted in an independent investigation of systemic racism at one of the largest departments in the federal government.
10+ years in media and congressional & regulatory affairs creating dynamic national campaigns in disparate venues.
