Cantor's Communications Director Leaving for Financial Services Forum

June 29, 2012

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., is losing another member of his communications team Communications Director Laena Fallon has been named vice president for communications for The Financial Services Forum, the forum announced on Friday.

Her appointment to the Forum, a group that bills itself as a non-partisan financial and economic policy organization, is effective the beginning of August, according to a press release.

Contacted Friday, Fallon said it hasn't been determined who will succeed her as communications director and that she is not leaving for at least a month.

"Laena brings to the Forum strong communication expertise, national media experience and a sophisticated understanding of Capitol Hill," said Forum President and CEO Rob Nichols. "She will be an extraordinary asset for our members as we go about communicating the important role the financial sector plays in economic growth and job creation."

Fallon had previously served as Cantor's press secretary. Earlier this year, another Cantor spokesman, Brad Dayspring, abruptly resigned as the leader's deputy chief of staff. He joined the Cantor-related Young Guns Action Fund, a super PAC that is focused on preserving the House Republican majority.

That president of that PAC is another former Cantor deputy chief of staff, John Murray, who had been instrumental in Cantor's speeches and messaging until his departure from the office in late 2011.

Previously, Fallon served as communications director and press secretary for former U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H.

"I look forward to joining an organization focused on addressing the top financial and economic challenges facing our country," Fallon is quoted as saying in the Forum news release.
