New Hires at American Action Network, Bingham Consulting, Waterkeeper Alliance

The center-right American Action Network has hired Trent Edwards as its new director of development and Brook Hougesen as regional press secretary.

Edwards most recently served Rep. Scott DesJarlais' chief of staff, and comes to AAN to help manage the group's fundraising. Edwards headed up the congressional and campaign operations for the Tennessee Republican and also led field finances for the National Republican Congressional Committee during the 2010 cycle.

Hougesen served as the communications director for Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, coming off a victorious primary bid in which she worked as Kinzinger's spokesperson. She previously headed up press operations for Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Ky., and did press work for Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill.

Also on Tuesday, Bingham Consulting announced it's bringing on Roman Popadiuk, a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and most recently the executive director of the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation.
