Earlier this week we announced that Prime Strategies merged with Urban Associates, a top-flight government relations and public affairs firm with deep ties throughout all levels of government, business, and labor in California. Through this merger, Prime Strategies significantly expands its national footprint.
Pedro Carrillo is the Managing Partner of Prime’s California operations and is a seasoned government affairs professional with an extensive history in local and state government. Rounding out his team are Frank Aguirre Jr., Erika Ramirez, Kimberly Caceres, and Enrique Vega.
Prime Strategies, a national public affairs firm with reach in the mega states of the nation, has seen phenomenal growth since its launch earlier this year. Prime Strategies can now offer top-tier government affairs and communications services in New York, Florida, California, and Washington, D.C.
The merger was widely covered in California, Florida, and national political media, which are featured below. Stay tuned for more expansion announcements in the near future.
We all look forward to our ongoing work together.
