Associated Press Chief White House Correspondent Jennifer Loven joins the powerful Washington DC firm Glover Park Group as managing director in its public affairs practice after 18 years at the newswire.
Loven joined the AP in 1992 as an editorial assistant, and has since worked a number of regions and beats before covering the White House during the Bush and Obama administrations. After getting promoted to Chief in 2008, she also became president of the White House Correspondents Association where she “shepherded relations between the incoming Obama administration and the press corps,” according to Glover Park’s press release.
Loven carries the same managing director title as Alex Mistri, who also joined the firm this month. Mistri was previously at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
Glover Park’s longtime managing director Alex Slater joined SKDKnickerbocker in June, joining President Obama’s former communications director Anita Dunn.
