WASHINGTON, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- McBee Strategic, LLC today announced that Kim Olson Dorgan has joined the firm as Managing Director. Bringing her considerable Washington, D.C. experience to McBee, Dorgan will play a senior role at the firm, assisting advocacy clients with political and legislative strategy and strategic communications for public affairs campaigns.

A 16-year veteran of the American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI), Dorgan was most recently Senior Executive Vice President where she oversaw global public policy.

"The advocacy landscape in Washington has evolved considerably, and there are enormous opportunities for my practice," says Dorgan, who has been recognized by The Hill as one of the top lobbyists in Washington. "McBee is compelling because the firm combines successful lobbying and strategic communications services and has unique access to regulatory and legal counsel through its parent, Wiley Rein."

Last year, McBee was purchased by Wiley Rein, LLP and operates as an independent subsidiary. The combined firms have more than 300 professionals and create a Washington, D.C. legal, advocacy and communications powerhouse providing sophisticated client services. With the addition of Dorgan, this year, McBee Strategic has added over 10 professionals.

"Kim is a longtime friend and incredibly talented," says Sam Whitehorn, Managing Director and a member of the firm's Executive Committee. "Her experience will serve our clients well and will help McBee continue to grow our lobbying and strategic communications businesses."

"We're excited to see McBee continue to make investments. With her successful track record in lobbying and communications, Kim will serve as a strong strategic partner to McBee's and Wiley Rein's clients," said Peter D. Shields, Managing Partner of Wiley Rein and a member of McBee's Executive Committee.

Prior to joining ACLI, Dorgan, a native of Washington state, had her own government relations business representing such non-profit clients as the Sesame Street Workshop, the National Captioning Institute, and America's Public Television Stations.
