Politico’s Mike Allen has the word on what the publication’s top brass has to say about the departure of Anne Schroeder Mullins, who, as we’ve reported, is leaving to start her own firm.
John Harris and Jim VandeHei thank her: “Anne Schroeder Mullins was here even before there was a POLITICO, one of the original hires … Having caught the entrepreneurial bug at POLITICO, she has decided to go into business as a consultant. It’s a safe bet she will be a very successful one. Anne is a natural connector, one of those people who seems to know everyone and everyone seems to know. She has great intuitive skill at reading people and relating to them, and she has become a very shrewd student of Washington. These were valuable assets to her as a columnist-and one of the charter members of the CLICK team-and they are going to be valuable to her in this next adventure.”
