Coming off 15 years successfully working at the intersection of policy, politics and messaging in both the House of Representatives and high-profile congressional campaigns, Jordan Davis joins Purple Strategies as a senior director this week.
“As we navigate this moment with our clients, we’re seeing heightened demand for the political campaign and policy expertise that have been part of Purple DNA from the beginning and that Jordan brings in spades,” said Steve McMahon, Purple co-founder and CEO. “We’re excited we’ll have him alongside us helping clients confront the changes they’re facing every day.”
Most recently, Jordan has been serving as senior advisor at the House Energy & Commerce Committee during the 115th and 116th Congresses, where he advised Committee leadership and members on messaging and legislative strategy. In this role, he oversaw all internal and external communications, coalitions engagement, and external affairs efforts of the Committee.
Previously Jordan served as policy director and communications advisor at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) during the 2014 and 2016 election cycles, where he established the NRCC’s policy department and provided strategic communications advice and issue education to House campaigns nationwide. He also served as legislative research director at the NRCC during the historic 2010 election cycle, and prior to that, in multiples roles within the House of Representatives in some of the most competitive political environments in the nation. Jordan is a graduate of the University of Central Florida.
“Purple Strategies is known for its innovation, thoughtfulness, and an unwavering dedication to their clients, and they do it all with a reputation that is second to none. I am thrilled at the opportunity to join an already stellar team and am hopeful that my mix of political, policy, and messaging experience will bring value both to Purple and its clients,” Jordan said.
Jordan is the latest in a series of senior-level talent across disciplines that Purple has brought on board this year as the firm embarks on its second decade helping corporations prepare for, navigate and compel change. Other key hires for Purple in 2020 have included Rebecca Ballard, managing director for communications, marketing and engagement; Chris Dealy, executive creative director; and Stacey Jaffe, senior director and insights lead.
