WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Hamilton Place Strategies announced that Jared Favole is joining the firm as a senior director.

Jared is joining HPS from The Wall Street Journal, where he tracked every twist and turn of the Obama presidency for four years as one of the newspaper’s White House correspondents. He also initiated and managed a web-tracking program for The Wall Street Journal’s Washington bureau that helped them break news about major court decisions.

“We’re incredibly excited that Jared is joining our firm,” said Tony Fratto, HPS founding partner. “We’re looking for smart people who add to our skill and experience, and Jared fits that bill. But most importantly, Jared fits with our culture. He understands collaboration, relying on data and evidence, and working with genuine passion. We can’t wait to get started.”

Prior to writing about the Obama presidency, Jared distilled complex Food and Drug Administration decisions for Dow Jones Newswires and Wall Street Journal readers, and mined thousands of Securities and Exchange Commission filings for news. Jared graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a degree in journalism and has a Master of Arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis, where he lives with his wife Johanna.
