She is based in Wash­ing­ton and re­ports to Ms. Mac­Don­ald.

“I couldn’t be more ex­cited to have Jo­hanna as a part­ner in our con­tin­ued growth,” said Ms. Mac­Don­ald. “Jo­hanna is trus­ted by our cli­ents, is a proven lead­er in busi­ness de­vel­op­ment strategy, and is praised as a man­ager who gets the best work out of her team.

Accusing the members of pulling a “Donald Trump,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the move “raises some questions about how confident they are about the kinds of arguments that they could make.”
