Heenan leaving Clarendon Group for Harvard

Scott MacKay in the ProJo and Matt have the details on Christine Heenan, the longtime local PR and consulting expert who worked in the Clinton White House and who was spokeswoman for Hillary's RI campaign, taking a new gig in Cambridge. (Obligatory only-in-RI connections: Christine is the daughter of former Phoenix columnist Pam Steager. She took longtime former Boston mayor Kevin H. White's superb poli-sci class at BU about a year or two after yours truly. Also, she is married to former Cicilline chief of staff Mike Mello.) Here's Matt's post.

One of Rhode Island's top public relations and political operatives, Christine Heenan, has accepted the post of Vice President of Government, Community and Public Affairs at Harvard University as of October 1st.  You might remember that Heenan most recently had two big wins as the communications director of the Hillary Clinton campaign in RI and also as one of the top strategists behind the Question #9 housing bond campaign.

Heenan will be leaving behind the public affairs agency that she founded: Clarendon Group.  In her place, Clarendon will now be led by a new three-member partnership including: current Clarendon Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Stacy Paterno, who becomes the Senior Partner of the firm, Clarendon Group Associate Director of Public Affairs, Arianne Corrente Lynch, who becomes Partner in the firm, and current Chief of Policy for the City of Providence, Garry Bliss, who becomes Managing Partner of Clarendon Group.

"Since its founding in 2001, Clarendon Group has occupied a unique place in the market, and has benefited from strong relationships with great clients." Heenan said. "I have tremendous confidence in the team that will lead Clarendon going forward, and in their ability to add value to clients and advance their agendas in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.”
