Following Addition of Five Communicators Earlier This Month, Growing Bipartisan Firm Adds Capitol Hill Experience, Expands In-House Design Team with New Additions

WASHINGTON, DC – (June 29, 2021) – Seven Letter, a bipartisan, full-service strategic communications firm with offices in Washington and Boston, announced today the addition of Capitol Hill veteran Elizabeth-Burton Jones and design specialist Zeina Muhtadi to its growing team of communicators. The addition of Jones and Muhtadi comes just weeks after Seven Letter announced the hiring of new partner Nu Wexler, of senior directors Annalyse Keller and Jessa Scott-Johnson, and content specialists Regina Anderson and Valentina Mendez.

“Elizabeth-Burton and Zeina are both incredibly smart communicators with the skill and experience to help our clients not just tell their stories, but bring them to life,” said Seven Letter Founding Partner Trevor Francis. “Elizabeth-Burton has a deep understanding of complex political issues honed over seven years working on Capitol Hill, and Zeina is an experienced designer who will help us continue to bolster our in-house capabilities and offerings. We are proud to welcome them to our firm and know that our colleagues and clients will soon come to rely on both of them for their counsel and skill.”

She most recently served as the press secretary for Congressman Steve Chabot (R-OH). As a Congressional staffer, Elizabeth-Burton created groundbreaking programming for the Senate Black Legislative Staff Caucus and the Women’s Congressional Staff Association, which later became templates for Congressional Staff Association programming. These programs are still utilized across Capitol Hill today. She is also a former adjunct professor at Georgetown University and The George Washington University. Jones received her undergraduate degree from John Carroll University, where she majored in Communication and Theatre Arts with minors in History and Spanish. She also holds a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University in Communication, Culture and Technology.

Muhtadi comes to Seven Letter with significant experience working on graphic design and brand strategy for leading companies and nonprofits such as Condé Nast Traveller, GQ, CitiVentures Studio and Human Rights Foundation. In joining Seven Letter, Muhtadi will strengthen the firm’s growing in-house design team. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Strategic Design and Management from Parsons School of Design in New York.
