Washington, D.C. - Monument Policy Group announced today that Stacey Hutchinson will join the Monument team where she will focus on serving the firms growing strategic communications and public affairs practice along with working on emerging technology issues. Monument is a boutique advocacy consulting firm with offices in Washington, D.C and Seattle providing government relations, strategic communications and public affairs services to corporations, trade associations and coalitions coast-to-coast.

"Joining a team as highly regarded and respected as Monument is definitely an exciting next step in my career," said Hutchinson. "My experience in communications, policy, politics and campaigns will aide Monument’s clients, many of whom are operating in a new environment, in developing an integrated strategy and effective advocacy. Monument has built a first-class brand of work with quality people and I am looking forward to contributing to the team."

Hutchinson brings over a decade of experience in political campaigns, federal and state government, tech policy, and strategic communications. Her previous experience gives her a breadth of knowledge across platforms and industries that will complement Monument’s growing communications practice.
