First it was National Journal, now a feature in Campaigns & Elections magazine (May edition). Beekeeper Group’s very own public affairs rock star, Henri Makembe, is setting the advocacy world on fire. Ok, ok, so maybe that’s a little too much hyperbole, but he is definitely a hugely positive influence around the Hive, helping us strategize so many more possibilities for engaging target online audiences.

Check out the Campaigns & Elections write-up below:

“Henri Makembe has joined the issue advocacy and public affairs firm, Beekeeper Group, LLC, as a partner. Makembe will lead the firm’s interactive division.


Henri Makembe

Before coming to Beekeeper Group, Makembe was client services manager at Blue State Digital. He has also worked with DCI Group as an account executive specializing in blogging, social networks, Web development, programming languages, and databases. Makembe is also known for his blog, Local Politechs, about ways that state and local candidates are using technology.

Mike Panetta, a partner with Beekeeper Group, said in a statement announcing the move that his firm “couldn’t be happier” with the addition of Makembe. “Henri’s dedication to both his clients and the public affairs industry, in addition to his expertise, will be a huge asset to Beekeeper Group,” said Panetta.”
