Congrats to President and founder Chris Talbot for winning a 2012 Rising Stars award from Campaigns & Elections.
Full article is here, some highlights:
Chris Talbot is often the youngest person in the room when he gets to a strategy meeting. Recently, he was brought in by the State Department to help with outreach and democracy building in Latin America…. “Abroad there’s this energy, but there’s not a strategic approach. It’s very nascent. We think we can work with the people trying to build these movements.”
The recognition puts Chris in good company: Since 1988, C&E has recognized up-and-coming political professionals who have made an early mark on the campaign world with this award. Rising Stars have gone on to serve at the highest levels of government and political consulting. Among the inaugural class: David Axelrod, James Carville, Alex Castellanos and Mike Murphy.
