WASHINGTON – Mike Murphy, one of America's most successful political strategists, is joining leading Washington-based advocacy and public affairs firm Revolution Agency as a partner. Murphy will use his vast strategic communications experience to focus on the Agency's public affairs advocacy work on behalf of corporate, trade association and nonprofit clients.

Called a "media master" by Fortune magazine, Murphy has handled media and strategy for more than 26 successful gubernatorial and senatorial campaigns, including Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has also advised leading corporate and public affairs clients, including Home Depot, PhRMA, the New York Jets, the Miami Heat, the U.S. Travel Association and the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace. A nationally known political analyst, he is a regular contributor to Time magazine and frequently appears on Meet the Press and NPR.

"I joined Revolution because they understand better than anyone else what the future of public affairs and political media looks like," said Murphy. "They're constantly raising the bar in terms of creativity and messaging with traditional media, and their digital practice sets the standard for Web-based advocacy. And probably most importantly, they are smart strategic thinkers that win."

An award and campaign-winning issue advocacy and public affairs firm, Revolution Agency was recently recognized at the 2011 Campaigns and Elections Reed Awards for the best public affairs campaign of 2010 as well as producing the year's toughest television ad. Revolution's clients are leading issue and political organizations, candidates, trade associations and corporations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, CTIA-The Wireless Association, International Speedway Corp., American Energy Alliance and the Republican State Leadership Committee.

"I've considered Mike a mentor for years and after nearly three decades in politics, his skill at planning and implementing winning integrated media campaigns remains unparalleled," said Matt Leonardo, a Founding Partner of Revolution. "Legions of public affairs professionals follow Mike's unique perspective on politics and current events on television, in print and via social media, and we couldn't be happier to be able to offer his strategic insights and advice to our clients."

Revolution provides a full range of advertising, strategic consulting and integrated communication services as well as issues management, grassroots, media placement and video and digital production solutions. The agency has locations in the District of Columbia and Florida and operates a full-service production and post-production facility from its Washington offices. For more information, visit
