H+K Strategies announced two additions to its U.S. affairs practice: longtime journalist Mark Edgar and attorney Larry Krutchik. Krutchik, who was formerly one of the partners in Allison+Partners, started his 20-year career as an attorney specializing in business litigation. He then entered public affairs in 1995 and joined Allison in 2009, eventually rising to the level of partner and managing the firm’s L.A. office. Edgar was most recently deputy managing editor of the Dallas Morning News. He spent more than 30 years with the organization, managing its coverage of national politics and its offices from Washington, D.C. to London.
