Ali Rubin is a Director in the Washington, D.C. office of Brunswick Group where she brings her broad experience across industries and geographies to support clients in achieving their reputational and communications objectives.

She specializes in public affairs, executive profile-raising, and complex cross-platform challenges.

Throughout her career, Ali has worked in Washington, New York, San Francisco, and L.A. on high-profile projects ranging from the leading the coordination of the G8 at Camp David, a first-of-its-kind national security event, multiple State Visits of foreign chiefs of state and heads of government, the launches of a media outlet as well as an entertainment platform, and the initial public marketing efforts of a major technology player. She brings to each client a deep understanding of the way politics drives technology, media and entertainment, and her extensive network around the country.

Most recently, Ali joined Brunswick from the Biden-Harris Transition where she served on the leadership team of the Outreach and Engagement Department. There, she was responsible for building stereophonic support across key constituencies, and with major stakeholders, for newly announced cabinet nominees and urgent policy priorities.

Prior to her time on Transition, she worked as an independent consultant for a range of clients including, most notably, Quibi, The Milken Institute, and several media organizations.

Before striking out on her own, Ali was hired as one of the first ten employees at Axios to bring her knowledge of politics and Washington to client partnerships, which resulted in a strategy that generated industry-leading revenue and brought three U.S. Vice Presidents and countless elected officials, CEOs and celebrities to the Axios stage. In the earlier stages of her career, Ali worked with Conde Nast on revamping their renowned Women of the Year event, which included a virtual global town hall with First Lady Michelle Obama and the first-ever day-long summit, Women of the Year LIVE, and on the business marketing efforts at Pinterest.

Ali started her career as a key aide to then-Senator Clinton, directly supporting the family through the 2006 senate re-election campaign, 2008 presidential campaign and at HILLPAC, her political action committee. She served as Chief of Staff for the Office of the Chief of Protocol at the State Department, advisor to the White House Chief of Staff, and spent time at the Clinton Foundation where she led family-focused projects, including a  campaign to establish an $80 million dollar public-private partnership to save the African elephant on behalf of 10 nations and 18 non-profits.

She is a graduate of the University of Southern California and, outside of work, she acts as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for DC youth.
