MILWAUKEE – Capstone National Partners, a full service public affairs firm with offices in Washington, D.C and Milwaukee is excited to announce the addition of Kate Venne and the launch of their public relations division.
“Adding an experienced team of public relations professionals to our government relations practice builds on our decades of experience in Washington by adding a new dynamic to our team,’ said John Rogers, Capstone National Partners founder and president.
“With the addition of Kate and our team’s experience and relationships with Hollywood, government and corporate America, our menu includes services no other firm in the Midwest is able to offer.”
Capstone has developed a completely new way of cutting through the massive amounts of information that exists in today’s media to help companies and organizations tell their story.
Through a relationship with Los Angeles-based company RL Leaders, Capstone and their PR team offer a unique role-playing simulation tool that addresses the challenges that Wisconsin’s medium size corporations and organizations face in the ever changing world of communications both internally and externally.
Kate Venne brings more than 14 years of experience in media and community relations. Her background includes working with non-profits, state and local governments, and large private institutions.
Most recently, she was director of communication for Marquette University, where she was primarily responsible for direct contact with members of both local and national media, issues management as well as coordination of collaborative campaigns requiring both government and private sector funding, approvals and coordination. Prior to that she served as the Communications Director for the Wisconsin Housing Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), where she oversaw several affordable housing campaigns.
She previously served as Public Affairs Manager at the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, successfully advocating for HIV/AIDS funding and policy at the state and county level, serving as spokesperson on HIV issues, and coordinating all communication needs. Click here for a headshot of Venne.
