Valerie Berlin, Principal and Co-Founder, BerlinRosen

Along with co-founder Jonathan Rosen, Berlin has made BerlinRosen into New York City’s public affairs firm of the moment, owing in large part to their No. 1 client, Bill de Blasio. A highly accomplished veteran of high-profile elections and legislative fights, Berlin leads the firm’s campaign and creative services practices. Launching the theme of a “Tale of Two Cities” from day one and sticking with it through thick and thin, BerlinRosen proved masters of messaging, running a campaign that artfully dodged more than a few obstacles and roared to the finish line.

Rosen has one of the two names on the door of the political consulting firm that helped propel Bill de Blasio from long-shot candidate to landslide winner in the mayoral race, a feat that raised the company’s profile exponentially and which is already luring streams of new blue-chip clients to the firm. Rosen also enjoys a tight personal relationship with the mayor, his former neighbor in Brooklyn, and many of the causes BerlinRosen champions dovetail with the mayor’s progressive agenda, including paid sick leave and universal pre-K.
