Three Experienced GOP Flacks Start Endeavor Global Strategies

EGS_LtoR_NI_GH_SS Former Capitol Hill staffers Nathan Imperiale, Gretchen Hamel, and Sean Spicer are joining forces to launch a public relations and strategy firm, Endeavour Global Strategies. "We all enjoyed working together before and wanted to create a firm of our own that utilizes our unique nexus of experience -- international, policy, political and new media," Hamel said. Spicer and Hamel served as assistant and deputy assistant in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative media affairs office in the Bush administration.  Hamel has worked for former House Republican Conference Chairman J.C. Watts of Oklahoma, and Rep. John Carter (R-TX).  Spicer has worked for the House Republican Conference, House Budget Committee, House Government Reform Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee.  Imperiale is a former aide for the House Republican Conference.  (Congress Daily AM's "People" column)
