Jim Papa

Senior Vice President and Managing Director Washington, DC

Jim Papa runs GSG’s Washington, DC Office, guiding operations and strategy for its public affairs, communications and competitive research practices. He works with a range of corporate and non-profit clients to bolster their strategic positioning in Washington, and across the country, by sharpening communications, deepening stakeholder engagement and developing coalitions.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said about Jim, “Papa is someone you want in the trenches with you.”  Jim is a veteran of the Obama White House, Democratic Leadership in the House and Senate and battleground Congressional districts…and has the scars to prove it.  He has extensive experience developing multi-faceted strategies to address legislative, regulatory and public relations issues.

When he isn’t working on behalf of his clients, Jim can occasionally be found thinking up the next plot twist in “The Adventures of Rosie Positano,” a long-running bedtime story series that he tells his daughter each night.
