ARLINGTON, VA, January 14, 2014 – Dunn Associates today is pleased to announce that Amie Adams has been named the company’s next President, effective February 1, 2015.
Dunn Associates is a consulting firm that pioneered and has
earned a national reputation for developing successful political action committee (PAC) and grassroots lobbying programs for major corporations and trade and professional associations.
Amie Adams joined Dunn Associates in August 2005 and most
recently served as Senior Vice President. During her tenure,
she has expanded the breadth of the firm’s client base and enhanced the depth and scope of the research, consulting and communications services it offers. As President, Adams’ first priority will be to continue to build Dunn Associates by leveraging its strong reputation while ensuring the firm continues to deliver solid results for its clients.
“Amie has an incredible understanding of our clients’ needs and how to bring strategic and fresh solutions to the table,” said Michael Dunn, Founder and Chairman & CEO. “Just as importantly, she has the ability to also turn good ideas into workable solutions that drive results. We are pleased to have Amie at the helm of the firm.”
Adams succeeds Karen Fabean who has served as President since 2005 and joined Mike Dunn in 1980 to build the firm’s reputation as a primary leader in the growth and development of PACs. Fabean also served as a key consultant to members of the National Association of Business PACs in Washington, DC, for more than 10 years. She will become Principal at Dunn Associates on February 1.
“Amie is the right person for our firm at a time when campaign finance is growing and political involvement is more important than ever,” Fabean said. “She is a strategic thinker and communicator with a strong background in technology, client services and political commonsense. It is gratifying to have my colleague and friend succeed me as President.”
Prior to joining Dunn Associates, Adams worked at Democracy Data & Communications (DDC) in Alexandria, VA, providing expert guidance on PAC and grassroots technology solutions.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to now lead Dunn Associatesinto the future. I’ve learned from the best in Mike and Karen. The industry has matured exponentially since I began my career, and it is an exciting time to help our clients engage their stakeholders in the public policy process.”
