WASHINGTON Nahigian Strategies (NS), an award-winning strategic communications and public relations firm with a growing transportation and energy practice, today announced that Bobby Fraser, former Head of Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Transportation, will join the firm as its newest Vice President of Communications.

“Bobby brings a unique experience in communicating transportation, energy, trade and workforce issues, having served in senior roles in the United States Senate and the U.S. Department of Transportation,” said Keith Nahigian, Nahigian Strategies president and founder. “He is a significant addition to our team at such a transformative time when major transportation sectors are looking beyond their traditional industry silos and needing to navigate new issues such as technology, privacy, cyber security, workforce, and more.”

Under his leadership, the Department’s Office of Public Affairs was awarded the Secretary’s Gold Medal for its public and media outreach efforts throughout the COVID-19 emergency.

“Nahigian Strategies is truly unique by offering the ability to tell clients’ stories in the most strategic and effective way, and I’m excited to join this outstanding team to contribute to its work for clients on infrastructure, energy, technology and other key matters,” said Mr. Fraser.

In addition to his expertise in policy, Mr. Fraser will provide guidance on strategic communications, media campaign development, crisis communications and press relations.
