Arlington, VA –Concerned Veterans for America today announced that Bill Turenne, Jr. has joined the organization as Director of Communications. Bill comes to CVA most recently from the global public relations firm Burson-Marsteller, where he was a director in the Public Affairs and Crisis practice. With nearly two decades of strategic communications experience in the grassroots/issue advocacy arena, federal government, political campaigns and the private sector, Bill joins CVA at a pivotal time for the organization as it seeks to advance policies to preserve freedom and build upon the recent momentum in renewing accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
During his seven years of service in the Administration of President George W. Bush, Bill served as a trusted media relations and advance aide to Secretaries Gates and Rumsfeld, and was later called to serve in the Office of White House Communications as well as the President’s National Security Council staff.
“We at Concerned Veterans for America are thrilled to have someone of Bill’s experience and passion leading our national communications efforts,” said Pete Hegseth, CEO or CVA. “Bill shares CVA’s commitment to our nation’s military veterans as well as the values and freedoms they fought to defend and I am confident that he will help take our fight on their behalf for government accountability and free market principles to the next level.”
