Lynn Krogh is a RISING STAR!

The Casale Group is please to announce that Lynn has been named a 2013 Campaigns and Elections Rising Star.

Lynn is one of only 10 Republicans selected this year for the award which is given out annually to recognize “the best and brightest in the industry.” Past recipients comprise a very prestigious group from both sides of the aisle including: Chris Mattola, Tony Fabrizio, James Carville, David Axelrod, George Stephanopoulos, Mike DuHaime, and Ken Mehlman.

We are also fairly certain that Lynn is the only New York based female republican consultant to ever be named to the list – of course, we’re also certain that she’s the only New York based female republican consultant that exists…

The honor will be awarded on Monday, June 17th at a reception in Washington, DC. While anyone in the area is welcome to join her at the event, Lynn would probably prefer that you find her afterwards at the bar and buy her a drink.

Lynn Krogh, 32
Partner, The Casale Group

Lynn Krogh grew up in Troy, N.Y. where she remembers her father running for a city council seat. “I helped get my friends involved any way I could,” she says. “We’d drive around and put lawn signs up.”

Even though she wasn’t old enough to even vote at the time, Krogh was immediately drawn to the democratic process, which eventually led to a career in politics. Now a partner at The Casale Group, Krogh is working tirelessly to elect Republicans in contests ranging from Rockland County executive to the New York City mayoral race—no easy task in true blue New York.

After helping reelect Gov. George Pataki (R) in 2002, she took a job in the administration’s press office where she eventually worked her way up to deputy press secretary. During the Pataki Administration, Krogh worked extensively on Lower Manhattan redevelopment plans.

From the outside, the process looked like “a giant bureaucratic mess,” admits Krogh, but she still regards it as one of the highlights of her career now that the Freedom Tower is nearing completion.

“Being down at the site three to four times a week and having a positive effect on the outcome of such an important project was a major highlight,” she says.

Krogh is a self-described “political architect” at her firm. She focuses on grassroots-centered campaigns. During the 2012 cycle, Krogh helped steer the Senate campaign of Wendy Long, who managed more than 50 percent of the vote in a three-way Republican primary.

“Not a lot of people get to do what they love,” she says. “The fact that I get to do what I love and get paid for it is incredible. It’s American.”
